Neutral Milk Hotel Now Touring
    Wednesday, 22 January 2014 /// Written by Trippe

The other day, in an excitement gush and with acquiescence that the tickets were already sold out, we'd read that Neutral Milk Hotel had reformed and are now touring and performing songs from one of the greatest albums of all time, Aeroplane Over the Sea r.1998.

Wherever you live, do yourself a favor and get to this concert. Neutral Milk Hotel, besides being years ahead of their time, produced an incredibly complete album, so full and resolutely sincere and magnificently beautiful... the idea of seeing it performed live gives my whole body goose bumps. April 9th is the date.

April 9th & 10th
Oakland's Fox Theater
Tickets
other cities and dates

Dreams do come true. Neutral Milk Hotel are touring.

If an indie rock band on a reunion tour is expected to force audiences to reconsider their legacy, Neutral Milk Hotel is absolutely nailing it. Not only is it reminding people of its masterpiece's immense influence, it is affirming its discography as a worthwhile document from back to front and reestablishing itself as a devastatingly powerful live act. As fans stuck around, hoping to get a glimpse of Jeff Mangum as the band packed up, I felt that, far from some crass cash-in, the Neutral Milk Hotel reunion was a band reclaiming its rightful reputation as one of music’s most independently-minded and idiosyncratic entities. ~READ ON

 

Hooray for Thee Ohsees
    Friday, 20 December 2013 /// Written by Trippe

SAN FRANCISCO --- Thee Ohsees aren't breaking up, but they are taking a long hiatus as front man John Dwyer (our podcast interview) told the crowd at Wednesday's performance at Great American. "This will be the last Oh Sees show for a long while," he told the crowd. "So dig in."

Dwyer's off to LA (yet another artist leaves San Francisco) and Brigid Dawson leaving for Santa Cruz while bass guitarist Petey Dammit and drummer Mike Shoun are staying in the city.

We just want to thank Thee Ohsees for bringing the brilliant music for years and can't wait to see them live again in the future!

After relentless touring and work, Thee Ohsees are taking a much deserved break.

Mollusk Big Sur Jamboree on September 27 to 28th: Two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!)))
    Monday, 02 September 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Camp fire roaring in Big Sur with live music from Vetiver, Beachwood Sparks, McCombs Skiffle Players (a once in a lifetime Cass McCombs super group), Allah-Las, Sonny and the Sunsets, The Autumn Defense, Little Wings, Neal Casal, Chris Cohen, F.D and the Wizards of the West All Stars, Range of Light Wilderness, The Mattson 2, Sonny and the Sunsets, and many more.

Sponsored by Mollusk surf shop and the Big Sur Jamboree features two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!))). Sept 27-28

Though there will be food and drink on site, Jamboree attendees are encouraged to bring their own. Been saving a vintage bottle of chardonnay from the famed Marcassin Estate in Sonoma… there couldn't be a better time to uncork it than when Beachwood Sparks hits the stage deep in the woods. Lastly, Farmer Dave has been deemed the Jamboree's "Cultural Vibesman" and will be on hand to ensure all attendees will have a wonderful time. Think of the Jamboree less as a music festival and more as summer camp for adults!

Volcom X Yo Gabba Gabba! / IT'S REALLY HAPPENING!
    Saturday, 22 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Our buddy Mike Aho is getting down with some rad video projects as of late.

His most recent was done for the collab between Volcom and the children's show YO GABBA GABBA! Mike wrote the little jungle and had the amazing opportunity to fly to NY and record it with Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips and Mother F-ing Biz Markie. They recorded at David Friedman's legendary studio. Then they set up a green screen and shot those two animals, Jack Black, Mark Mothersbaugh and Neploeon Dynamite! Mike Aho shot and directed the whole jam. Great job, Mike.

Met up with Jeremy Fish last night to catch up and discuss his upcoming solo show opening this August at San Francisco's FFDG. Don't want to give too much away, but the guy is very busy these days. You know the giant pink bronze statue will be built and installed at the corner of Haight and Laguna welcoming those to the Haight (check) in 2015? Going to be incredible.

Check photos from his last San Francisco solo show in 2012, and mark your calendar for August as his next solo show opens at FFDG.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

 

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
