There’s No Place Like _______ 

Wednesday, Jan 13 2010
The Believer mag and McSweeney’s gang pull together for a new art installation and music thingamajig called “Ecotones.” Someone fills the loo with stuffed animalia, someone pours caffeinated cocktails, a pair (NewVillager) sings sweet off-kilter pop songs, and some others show cheeky little movies. Christy Chan, for example: The exhibition’s theme is, roughly, “weird home,” and Chan’s most recent video work was inspired by her residence at the Headlands Center for the Arts. It shows wild animals inhabiting abandoned parts of the former military base the center is built on — the place has many layers of “weird home” upon it already, but by watching her scruffy neighbors out there, she may show us something entirely new. Other contributors include Sonya Genel, Conor Buckley, and swashbuckling man-about-town and Believer editor Andrew Leland.

  • 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.'"
