The Gift of Admission 

Wednesday, Dec 10 2008
The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s free Family Day on Christmas brings up an interesting question: What constitutes a family? Are you and your bus pass a family? Today you are! But the museum is also hoping for actual little ones and their parents to make their way inside for singing and dancing with Jonathan Bayer and storytelling with Michael Katz, as well as holiday artwork projects. Then, everyone can skip up to the exhibits, such as “Warhol's Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered,” the artist’s silk-screened homage to 20th-century Jewish notables, from Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud to the Marx Brothers and Franz Kafka. And don’t miss “John Zorn Presents the Aleph-Bet Sound Project,” which includes sound pieces based on the Hebrew alphabet by Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, and Terry Riley, among others.

  • 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.'"
