The Nade 

Wednesday, Sep 17 2008
Remember when everyone loved Ralph Nader -- everyone except the automobile industry bigwigs, anyway? Remember the guy who brought us seat belts? No? Not very many other people do either, but once upon a time, Ralph Nader was the country's highest-profile defender of (some would say inventor of) consumer rights. He fought and often won legal and legislative battles for stuff like clean meat, clean water, and equal rights for disabled people. Also, a couple little things known by their acronyms: OSHA and FOIA. Stop yelling! These are facts, pal, no matter how you feel about the whole spoiler issue. Nader speaks tonight about his presidential campaign, a sort of mysterious third-party (Or is it? Nader/Gonzalez isn't even a Green Party ticket, as far as we can tell.) bid that seems like a weird move for a progressive.

  • 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.'"
