Arts + Culture
If you want to do something awesome Saturday night but you’re not entirely sure what, try JooWan Kim’s hip-hop opera, Great Integration. It’s an allegory of end times (think 2012, Mayan-style) layered in a pulsing hybrid of hip-hop, jazz, and classical.
If you like pub quizzes but are tired of the usual format, swing by the LookOut on a Monday night for Brain Farts. The lovely Pollo Del Mar—that's right, Chicken of the Sea—hosts the two hour, 2 to 3 round quiz and selects a "Six Degrees of..." theme every week, posted to the Facebook page by Monday afternoon. Last week's theme was Six Degrees of Dixie Carter (best known as Julia Sugarbaker on "Designing Women") and even though we'd prepared by reading and half-memorizing Dixie's Wikipedia page, we were simply outmatched by some serious Dixie lovers.
So you love Radiohead, right? No doubt you can picture each of their album covers in your mind as soon as they're named. But who created these iconic images, from Amnesiac's old red book to Pablo Honey's super 90's flower-baby collage? Stanley Donwood is the man behind the art, and he's having his first-ever U.S. art show, entitled "Over Normal" in our very own San Francisco at Fifty24SF Gallery on September 2nd.
