Truth Is Beauty, Beauty Truth 

Wednesday, Jun 15 2011
At “The ArtOfficial Truth,” local artist Chor Boogie curates a huge big gang of visual artists — 26 of them. It’s a street-art smorgasbord, an international yet largely local trove of intensely talented makers. One of our favorites is Yiying Lu, who designed the Fail Whale for Twitter; another is Pablo Cristi, who participated in SF Weekly’s Masterminds art competition this year. Filmmakers, glass artists, stencilers, muralists, and more contribute. “Art always speaks the truth,” Boogie writes, and if that’s true, this is the place to see a lot of the beautiful kind.

The opening reception for “The ArtOfficial Truth” starts at 7 p.m.
June 17-Aug. 6, 2011

  • 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.'"
