You're In the Movie 

Wednesday, Dec 24 2008
After you've seen Milk, and who hasn't, you probably want to know more about that time, and Paul VanDeCarr's audio tour "Out of the Bars and Into the Streets" has lots more. Narrating is author Jewelle Gomez; her reassuring voice reminds you to turn your audio player off when you cross the street and stuff like that, without a trace of the "you dumbass" tone we'd have if we were narrating. But most of the recording puts you in the company of the real-life characters from the movie: Milk campaign coordinator Anne Kronenberg, adorable sidekick (and AIDS Memorial Quilt creator) Cleve Jones, and former twink Dan Nicoletta. Between them, they know everything. The route -- you've probably walked it, maybe backwards a few months ago, against Prop. 8 -- starts at Milk's former camera shop, hangs around Twin Peaks, looks at Harvey Milk Plaza, and then wends down Market Street, all in all about 1.75 miles in 70 minutes.
Starts: Dec. 18. Daily, 2008

  • 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.'"
