Wood for Gold 

Wednesday, Jan 8 2014

It's easy to see why the Tenderloin's Ever Gold Gallery is a favorite among locals. The former bling shop, now a contemporary art gallery, features artists as gritty and diverse as the neighborhood in which it resides. Founder/owner and San Francisco native Andrew McClintock's ever-changing lineup of local and international artists seems to be selected based on his tastes for uninhibited voice and nervy work. It's like a big, refreshing, uncensored, punch in the face. The gallery's fifth birthday will be a showing of 80 emerging and mid-level artists between the ages of 19 and 81. Although you never really know what will happen when 80 artists are shown together in a 500-square-foot space, we can hope to see a few things like Ben Venom's bold grandma-quilting-meets-tattoo-art textiles, eerily delicate drawings from Mary Joy Scott, and humorous sculptures by Jeremiah Jenkins, among many, many others.

  • 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.'"
