Tribal Fusion? No 

Wednesday, Aug 18 2010
If you never want to get a tattoo, visit a tattoo convention. A lot of bad tattoos show up at tattoo conventions. Depending on how spiteful and angry you are, you can go around feeling smug that you didn't get, say, "I'm Awsome" across your back, or realistic ribs poking through your chest. You can also find out whether advances in face tattooing have yet to produce a good one. Our local Body Art Expo, however, features the best reason to attend a tattoo convention: a homeground burlesque show, hosted by Miss Eva von Slut (covered in tattoos) and featuring much-loved favorites Dottie Lux (double helix down the spine), Sparkly Devil (ladies on shoulders), Bunny Pistol (assorted bats and things), and Ophelia Coeur de Noir (to be determined). Other events, which may be the best or the worst depending on what you have drunk, include the Hot Ass Contest, the Hot Babe and Hot Stud Contests, and the Best Orgasm Contest. If you're shocked by any of that, then maybe it's time to visit a tattoo convention.

  • 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.'"
