We were pretty stoked about pioneering punk, hip-hop, and skate photographer Glen E. Friedman's current show at San Francisco's 941 Geary -- and we weren't the only ones. Burning Flags Press and director Colin M. Day interviewed Friedman and artist Shepard Fairey at the opening of the exhibit, and made it into a cool video. Subtly entitled "Fuck You All," Friedman's runs through the end of the year at 941 Geary. Though it has traveled all over the world, the short video explains why San Francisco is an especially good place to see it.

Fans of local music will note the numerous pictures of Jello Biafra and the Dead Kennedys, as well as Friedman's shot of Rick Blackhart, a prime Nor-Cal skater from the early days of the sport. Along with that are his classic images of Black Flag, Public Enemy, and others. Watch Friedman and Fairey discuss them in the high quality video below.

  • 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.'"
