Radar Celebrates 10 Years of Superstars 

Wednesday, May 22 2013

For 10 years now, Radar Productions has been providing a venue for queer and queer-friendly artists from all over the country and beyond. Its monthly series in the public library features not only readings but a Q&A session with the authors and fresh baked goods from founder Michelle Tea. Every year the organization also goes on a national tour as Sister Spit; organizes an all-expenses-paid retreat in Mexico open to past Radar performers; and runs a chapbook contest. Just this past year it established a new imprint with City Lights Publishers. The 10-year anniversary reading will feature New York-based performance/video artist Jibz Cameron, whose work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag has been hailed by The New York Times as "the funniest and most pitch perfect performance seen in years"; Thomas McBee, from New England, who is a "masculinity expert" for VICE and the "Self-Made Man" columnist for The Rumpus; performance artist Maryam Rostrami ("Persian Looking" and "Nicole Kidman is Fucking Gorgeous"); and Brian Freeman, playwright/actor/director and co-founder of The Pomo Afro Homos.

  • 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.'"
