Weather or Not 

Wednesday, Aug 29 2007
Several of the artists contributing to the art exhibit "Strange Weather" work outside their usual area: painter David Maxim is best-known for abstracts, but here contributes a series of realist portraits of mountains. Joan Perlman usually documents her obsession with the bizarre geography of Iceland in paintings and drawings, but here she shows a video installation, From Ice, about the cold country's glacial rivers. Simon Reilly is another painter-turned-videographer, and he "premieres" a piece called Vesuvius #2. Not everything has changed, though: Local favorite Liz Hickok is still making landscape models out of uplit gelatin blocks, aka cities made of glowing Jell-O.

  • 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.'"
