Popping Wheelies 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2013
Nothing exercises the hammies and knees like a brisk bicycle ride. Combined with a hearty off-trail shag or blow break, that is. If the benefits of this alterna-biathlon have heretofore escaped your notice, take a gander at Bike Smut, the anything-but-coy touring program of erotic short films. A skin-baring celebration of cycling and screwing under the sun — this sixth incarnation is called “Turning Trixxx” — Bike Smut offers the wittiest and most stimulating pretense imaginable for exhibitionists, voyeurs, and porn-happy environmentalists to assemble. We can’t titillate you with titles, because the films and their makers savor a certain anonymity (except when the camera’s running), but it’s probably safe to say that no customer will leave, ahem, unsatisfied. The lineup includes a half-dozen films from Europe, where this cinematic subgenre of amateur calisthenics apparently originated, along with a pair of shorts by established Bay Area sexploitation queens. Count on a variety of illustrated suggestions for what to do with a bicycle built for two, none of which Harry Dacre had in mind when he composed “Daisy Bell” in 1892, or when Hal (unplugged) sang it in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

  • 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.'"
