San Franvampires 

Wednesday, May 29 2013

The literary journal that focuses solely on San Francisco-related work is back with Issue 8: The Genre Issue. As the name suggests, Instant City is emblematic of our ever-changing municipality and its many subcultures, so it's not hard to imagine how comically outrageous it might be to see S.F. via cowboys and vampires. Especially from the likes of Sean Taylor, Alvin Orloff, Alia Volz, and Trent Tano, all of whom will be performing. The evening will be held among the piles of books that haven't yet been transported to Adobe's new home (on 24th Street), which you know will be alternately charming, sad, and triumphant (it also may be your last chance to hang out there). "In a true Instant City-style celebration, there will also be something unexpected and something extraordinary," promises the invite. Since this is the first issue in two years of what has otherwise been a biannual journal, party organizers will likely make good on that promise.

  • 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.'"
