Voices Carry 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2013
On International Women's Day, the Iranian women's nonprofit organization 30Voices addresses their often complicated, too often oppressed, but defiantly beautiful lives. These women dare to be heard through song, dance, music, poetry, and epic stories, specifically the story of Tahmineh, a female heroine in the Persian epic poem Shahnameh, written by Ferdowsi between ca. 977 and 1010 AD. Catch the free exhibition of Iranian paintings and sculptures under an elaborate Ghashghai tent earlier in the evening, but be sure to stick around for the live performances and dances at 8 p.m. Attendance goes to a very good cause: 30Voices not only raises aware-ness about domestic abuse, but also assists and rehabilitates victims of abuse, both the Iranian women and their families.

  • 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.'"
