Refuge in Refuse: Homesteading Art & Culture Project 

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through March 14 2015

How many people does it take to change Albany Bulb?

At the Albany Bulb on the other side of the bay, a landfill-turned-park has been completely transformed by the community's personalities. Sometimes known simply as "The Bulb," the area has been taken over by a wide range of area residents — artists, anarchists, local teens, the homeless. Their mark is apparent: Large-scale graffiti pieces, sculptures and installations line the walkways of the former dump. If anything represents the Bay Area, a waterfront park filled with artwork from all social classes would be it. San Francisco gallery SOMArts brings a bit of this dynamic commonwealth to life with "Refuge in Refuse: Homesteading Art & Culture Project." Through a series of films highlighting the lives of former Bulb residents, as well as pieces from numerous artists inspired by or working in the community, audiences get a deeper look at the eclectic people of The Bulb.

  • 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.'"
