Night at the Museum 

Wednesday, Feb 4 2009
The dissolute among us visit the new glossy high-tech nature museum and think: It's great, but ... with a martini it would be really spectacular. We're not bad people. We are just, as Dorothy Parker would say, very thirsty. At NightLife, our dreams come true. All the children are shooed out, a genius expert sits us down and explains some heavy shit, and DJs play music that makes us feel pretty. Then we get to walk around and ponder the bat rays, stemware in hand. Maybe pet a leafy sea dragon. Every Thursday, for the rest of our lives. The opening event features Oxford University's Keith Thomson, who has written several books on Charles Darwin, and DJs from Om Records. Tonight is also the kickoff party for a series of events called EVOLVE 2009, commemorating Darwin's 200th birthday. We raise our glass to him, even though Gallup says 66 percent of adults still don't believe in evolution. See? Thirsty.
Thursdays, 6 p.m. Starts: Feb. 12. Continues through Oct. 29, 2009

  • 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.'"
