River Deep, Spectator High 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
Ursula Schneider's paintings aren't what they seem. They look like abstract paintings, beautiful, gossamer things with patterns and rhythm and colors we like. Bands of color are big with her at "The River," which sounds like a good name for an exhibit of abstract paintings. But it turns out that her paintings are really faithful pictures of the Hudson River. Red sky reflects on silver ice, colored lights bleed into black water, or green and blue reach deep into each other. In addition to being easy on the eyes, it's a little bit of a head trip; without the mind game it would be nice, but as it stands, it's a lot better than nice.

  • 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.'"
