This Thursday SF Weekly will be hosting Artopia, an art show at Project One featuring the 10 finalists in our annual Masterminds contest. That night, we'll award $2,500 grants to three lucky artists. In the meantime, we'll be previewing the works of the works of the finalists here on All Shook Down.

Jasmin Zorlu's hats are famous: Erykah Badu has three.

Using fur felt and -- seriously -- fish leather, Zorlu makes hats that recall flappers, freedom fighters, and femmes fatales. Convertible cloches, military caps infested with bows, and her signature Molecular Mermaid Helmet come from a broad background in clothing design, and a special interest in your head.

Zorlu is very much an artist with a specific vision, and we're excited she calls San Francisco home. Talent, skill, energy, and hard work mean this independent-minded milliner has a strong future in the fashion world.

  • 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.'"
