Pal o’ Mine 

Wednesday, Feb 11 2009
Today a notorious, unrepentant domestic terrorist is due in our city, and we implore you to join forces and descend upon the location early and en masse — and then sit quietly during his presentation and maybe ask a few thoughtful questions and hopefully get your book signed. It’s Bill Ayers! Despite the braying of Sean Hannity and the vomiting of Sarah Palin and the ear of every reporter in the nation, Ayers wisely kept quiet during the campaign, and has only recently begun giving lectures. He slips into the Mission District at an auspicious moment, when the fires of protest are warm in the hearts of our own local activists, still dizzy with their victory over clothing. Viva Valencia la bonita! Ayers appears with fellow Weather Underground leader Bernardine Dohrn to present their book, Race Course: Against White Supremacy, which examines the history of bigotry in politics, policy, and education.

  • 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.'"
