Stalking Alan Bamberger

Posted By on Tue, May 29, 2007 at 3:00 PM


Emily Jane White’s show at Mollusk was greatness. Her voice sounded good and her band is excellent, only partly because her drummer Ross has the smallest drum kit ever. Foot Foot and Jeffrey Manson (who was in the studio this weekend) played too. It was a strange crowd, with lots of older surfer types who talked really loud over all the music. (Overheard hipster: “I am officially weirded out by this place.”)

I think they were there to see the art, which was good and created agony for those of us who want to touch but have too much respect -- a lot of it is games that are apparently meant to be touched. What to do? Alan Bamberger of was there for a moment. I had also seen him at the Adobe back room gallery while looking at Chris Corales’ reused book and paper collage stuff, which ruled. As an Alan acolyte, I was totally fucking stoked to get my picture in artbusiness. It’s my second time! --By Hiya Swanhuyser (image courtesy

  • 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.'"
