Prostitution has always been a hot-button issue in San Francisco, but how often do we hear from sex workers themselves? Join us alongside St. James Infirmary in celebrating the 102nd anniversary of San Francisco's 1917 sex worker march which took place in the Uptown Tenderloin vice district. Authors Ivy Anderson and Devon Angus, co-editors of Alice: Memoirs of a Barbary Coast Prostitute, will give a talk examining the history of sex work in SF from 1849-1917. Afterwards representatives from St. James Infirmary will address where we are at 100 years later in the continuing fight for sex workers’ rights.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
