The Art of Restraint, Warhol Live Pop Party and the Grilled Cheese Invitational: Your Monday Morning Hangover

Posted By on Mon, Feb 23, 2009 at 10:40 AM

Our weekend involved cheese, ropes and Andy Warhol. In that order:

Saturday afternoon's Grilled Cheese Invitational at Dolores Park was well attended - all 500 tasting wristbands sold out in minutes, a good hour before the event began! Tamara Palmer  has the skinny at SFoodie.

Saturday evening was quite literally tied up in knots at Femina Potens, where some lovely submissive types helped demonstrate "The Art of Restraint." See Gretchen Robinette's somewhat NSFW photo set here.

Also on Saturday: Music Editor Jennifer Maerz attended the de Young's fancy Warhol Live Pop Party:
The main floor of the museum was packed mostly with well-heeled women

in fancy vintage, their male counterparts in boring black suits, and a

couple flamboyant artist types who took the theme to heart and really

tried to make a visual impression. The hall was also stocked with open

bars (featuring signature cocktails like the "Nico-tini") and kitschy

food like Pop Tarts, pizza, and donut holes. It was difficult to spend

much time there, though, unless you were really excited about the way

the Unauthorized Rolling Stones "jazzed up" the Stones catalog by

camping it up like a bad wedding band.

Read the rest here. And do check out Hanna Quevedo's colorful photo set.

Photographer Tim Wagner spent Saturday and Sunday nights at the newly reopened Fox Theater in Oakland. See his shots of the venue (and well, Cake and Modest Mouse) here.

  • 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.'"
