Lee Friedlander's current exhibition at the SF MOMA is one of my favorite photography displays hosted by the museum. Specifically his black and white photos reflecting scenes both outside the car and from the side view mirror are visually stunning. Included in that show are a couple shots of Lee's son Erik as a small boy. Erik's grown up quite a bit since then, and is now an accomplished cellist who has worked with everyone from John Zorn to Courney Love. Witness the art of Erik and Lee Friedlander working in unison when Erik Friedlander performs at the MOMA tomorrow, April 24, at 8 p.m. His most recent CD is an experimental concept based on family road trips, a theme that reflects his father's work nicely. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
