Public Display of Affection 

Wednesday, Feb 2 2011
It appears the folks behind Valen-tiny Night are employing the age-old nicknaming conventions of Opposite Day. A fat guy named Slim! A tall guy named Shorty! So it is with “-tiny” in the title of this fabulously multifarious and indeed huh-yooj evening of entertainment. Witness feelings, nothing more than feelings from Portland synth-pop supertalents Lovers. Singer Cubby Berk's danceable poetry gets you gazing in the eyes of your OkCupid hookup and hoping for long days, sparking spliffs, and listening to Dylan on your hi-fi. Drink in dreamy local artist and playwright Dave End's po-mo peep show in the elevators. Nibble some snacks, regard a performance by Jess Curtis, and check out the exhibits. You could reflect on the way human hearts find each other for purposes from sex to kissing to love to simple (or is it?) asexual coexistence, as celebrated by a small but firmly entrenched contingent in the Gay Pride parade. Friends! How can you be so skinny and live so phat?

  • 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.'"
