New Graf 

Wednesday, Dec 12 2007
Graffiti art continues to move from the alleyways to the galleries, and often retreats structurally from explosive outlaw murals to smaller, more traditional canvases. This trend is a well-documented mixed bag, as some say it enlivens the art world and gives scrawlers their due, while others see it as a sad domesticating ritual. At "Rubicon Sun," graffiti-bred artists David Ellis and Doze Green are set to slip through the fingers of anyone's confining preconceptions by turning a two-story gallery into a spray-can wonderland. Using "drawing, painting, sculpture, music, kinetic movement, sound, light, projection, and film," the pair team up to put street ingenuity to work, in the welcoming environment of a gallery that gets it. Sounds like the best of both worlds.

  • 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.'"
