Ties that Bind 

Wednesday, Sep 12 2012
Fit to be tied after a long week? Experience rope bondage opening night at San Francisco Erotic Art Exhibition 2. Have you forgotten how to play? Rediscover your inner freaky child with Good Vibrations’ adult toy demo Saturday. Copious activities are spread out over the three-day event, with over 400 pieces of art definitely NSFW (not safe for work). Sculptor cum curator Peter Keresztury of Erotic Art Events commingles the work of 25 artists, including photography from Eugene Frankel’s traditional nudes to the holography of Ronnie Olson, and paintings from heavy metal cover artist Lorenzo Sperlonga to The Kinky Coloring Book’s James Courtney. If your preference is sculpture, get your hands on Michael Staley’s nine inch, bejeweled penises, or life casts from Kozmo Bates’ Ranch of Raunch. Giddy up. Bondage dominates the scene. Todd c. Hartman of LIGHT Bondage “binds” his models by moving around them with a light source, his camera lens gaping, producing virtual restraints that bristle with electricity. Others favor a good, old fashioned hemp or nylon rope. The work spans the kink spectrum, from the tasteful to the tasty with something for every body. So come. You know you want to.
Fri., Sept. 21, 4 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 22, 1 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 23, noon, 2012

  • 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.'"
