'Voices of Rwanda' Hoping to Educate San Francisco -- And Raise Funds, Of Course

Posted By on Mon, Jan 12, 2009 at 1:59 PM

"Voices of Rwanda," an organization that has been filming and recording the stories of survivors of the 1994 Rwanda genocide, is making a screening/fund-raising appearance tomorrow night in San Francisco.

The 6 p.m. event at 251 Rhode Island St. comes with "drinks on the house," though drunken levity does not appear to be the M.O. of the day. Your $35 suggested donation goes to "recording and preserving testimonies of Rwandans, and to ensuring that their stories inform the world about genocide and inspire a global sense of responsibility to preserving human rights atrocities."

  • 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.'"
