Sounds Dangerous 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010
The famous fire arts community center hosts a youth art show. One of the coolest parts of the Oakland institution is its commitment to local kids, and at "Flamboastin'," you can see what they've done. Metalwork, wood carving, ceramics, and more show the breadth of the classes and workshops available, as well as the always-surprising fact that when kids are encouraged and supported, the skill they can access is nearly unlimited. And yes, we realize that art and shop classes used to be available at public schools, so it's a bit sad that a non-profit center has to step in to offer them. But hey, we're just glad it's there.

  • 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.'"
