Too Much Good Stuff 

Wednesday, Apr 8 2009
Pop-Up Magazine expects 23 contributors. That fact wouldn't be particularly interesting if Pop-Up were a print publication, but it isn't. Instead, This American Life-er Douglas McGray, New Yorker Evan Ratliffe, and The Curiosity Shoppe-rs Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith re-interpret the term "magazine" to mean "live stage show." Among the horde the organizers plan to shuffle on and off stage are ZZ Packer, Michael Pollan, Farai Chideya, and SF Weekly's own Music Editor Jennifer Maerz and our theater writer, Chloe Veltman. We wish everyone luck in this excellent literary (and film-oriented, foodie, artsy, musical etc.) stampede.

  • 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.'"
