Grateful Dead fans can stop gazing at all those old posters and tie-dyes on Haight Street and check out more recent works of art by a member of those iconic hippies. Dead drummer Mickey Hart is having an art show that opens today at Dennis Rae Art Gallery (a gallery that, coincidentally, also has a show by Tony Curtis this month). Hart's exhibition comprises pieces of redwood worked into sculptures of dragons, squid, and motorcycles. The show opens to the public on Saturday, Nov. 22, but you've gotta RSVP for the guest list if you want to attend and see Hart in the flesh. -- 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.'"
