Rebels' Renaissance 

Wednesday, Jun 25 2014

Small arts organization Queer Rebels has been providing a place for art and performance by queer people of color since 2008. With a mission that looks to the past experiences of its artists to inform the future, Queer Rebels produces an annual event called Queer Harlem. "We are inspired by the way Harlem artists created an artistic movement," says Queer Rebels co-founder and musician Kali Boyce. "How can we elevate the past and create anew?" Now in its fifth year, Queer Harlem features an astonishing lineup of artists performing in just about every imaginable discipline, from live music and literature to visual art, dance, and film/video, including Kirya Traber back in town from New York, as well as Joshua Merchant, Indira Allegre, Sonya Renee Taylor, Jezebel Delilah X, and many more. The show is part of the 17th annual National Queer Arts Festival.

July 5-6, 8 p.m., 2014

  • 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.'"
