The Asian Art Museum and the Tenderloin Museum are pleased to collaborate on a literary reading featuring Vietnamese American authors Andrew Lam and Angie Chau. Both have written extensively about coming of age in San Francisco in the 1980s through the lens of the Vietnamese immigrant experience. Their personal narratives are in dialogue with the current exhibition at the Tenderloin Museum, Voice of the Central City: The Tenderloin Times, 1977–94, which explores the history and impact of the Pulitzer Prize–nominated Tenderloin community newspaper.

  • 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.'"
