Thanks to Project One for hosting a great party and all the artists who helped make a terrific show last night. We wish we could have given out grants to everyone, but we only had enough money to give out three.

Packard Jennings

Packard Jennings' work invades the lives of everyday people and isn't confined to a gallery. Imagine finding his anarchist action figure at Wal-Mart or one of his brochures at Walgreens directing you to locally-owned stores. You would have to stop and consider what you were looking at -- who left it there? Why? In a consumer culture in which we're bombarded with empty sales slogans every day, Jennings makes us stop and think about the way we interact with the 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.'"
