Sketch Tuesdays, founded in 2006, is a monthly event where 20 or so local artists hang out and make their art on a small scale. When the artwork is completed it becomes available to purchase by the audience mingling nearby -- and often for cheap! If you like the funky fresh art up on the wall just go find the artist seated at a cafeteria-style table and buy the art directly from the source. There is always a variety of artists using different techniques to create works, so chances are something will catch your eye. The event also serves as a get-together for the art community and a bonafide excuse to toss back a few cold ones on a Tuesday. For the aspiring art collector on a budget, this is a great way to get some high-quality art for a low price. The event itself is always free to attend and the venue has a full bar. Now if you appreciate other things, like being a creeper or hanging out under bridges, we imagine you would have a better time at something called "Sketchy Tuesdays," but we don't have any information on that non-existent event.

  • 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.'"
