We're In a Mission From God 

Wednesday, Apr 23 2008
The Mission District is better than any other neighborhood: It's sunnier, more stylish, and has more Latinos than practically anywhere else. Excellent! On top of that, the Mission has so many art studios, you could never walk to them all, not even over the course of a long weekend. Mission Open Studios means you can try, though. Organizers provide a map of some of the larger, warren-like studio buildings for just this purpose: We recommend you use the map, but also keep an eye out for bright signs as you scurry. Some notable artists who have cleaned the studio in anticipation of your visit: Beth Schuenemann, whose toyish landcapes look like Chris Ware got caught in a lego blender; Silvia Poloto, with her Raymond Saunders-inspired abstracts; and Lily Martine Baxter, she of the jaunty bright cell-forest paintings.

  • 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.'"
