We Don't Need No Maga 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
The do-it-yourself counterculture continues to protest the idea that artists need large amounts of money to be creative. From stenciling sidewalks to setting up renegade concerts to photocopying literature, many people prefer to cut out the middleman and express themselves to the masses directly. The S.F. Zine Fest is an annual gathering of like-minded people who hope to keep independent and underground publishing alive. The festival has grown over the last six years, but its emphasis is still on small-circulation, unbound books — zines. AK Press, Cutter Photozine, and cartoonist Michael Capozzola are just a few of the more than 100 DIY creators selling and trading their artwork at this year’s new location in Golden Gate Park. Aside from the chance to stroll around picking up inspiration, you can take in workshops, a nature walk, and a documentary film screening, ending the day with a big game of DIY kickball.

  • 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.'"
