To Infinity and Beyond 

Wednesday, Sep 15 2010
You’ve planted a garden, sewn yourself overalls, converted your car to biodiesel, and started a zine to disperse vital subcultural information. What next? Thank you for asking! Take your DIY savvy to Star Trek heights and build some cosmic toys with your kid. Or someone else’s kid (is there a City Car Share–style business for borrowing children yet? In which they’re clean and pre-fed?). Today’s event, The Physics of Toys: Space, the Final Frontier, invites kids to build rockets and other space-age toys. Belly up to a table and assemble your unique vision for futuristic play pieces from a variety of shapes and materials. All supplies are provided at no additional cost beyond the entry fee. Each month brings a new Physics of Toys theme: October will be “Round and Round in Circles,” in which kids make toys that teach the science behind circular motions. Watch out for the spins! In the meantime, shoot the moon.

  • 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.'"
