Prop Yourself Up 

Wednesday, Oct 1 2008
Fucking propositions. They always say one thing and mean another. Seems like they usually promise clean water and improved air quality when they mean tax breaks for polluters. There's never enough time to learn about them, either, and the language used in the Voter Pamphlet is so densely legal and intentionally confusing that most people just vote "no" on all of them. This is understandable, but not wise. At 2008 Propositions 101, you can vent your frustrations in a roundtable discussion. Just kidding. Meeting-venting isn't fun (for anyone except the venter), especially during meetings with important issues at stake. In San Francisco, a Coit Tower "makeover" is one such issue (we may be against this, but need more information), as is taxing millionaires (for!). Blessedly, wine and snacks are part of the discussion; we find these two items absolutely necessary to figuring out what's what in the dreaded Voter Pamphlet.

  • 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.'"
