the guardian editorial

City Hall’s 2012 agenda EDITORIAL There’s so much on the to-do list for San Francisco in 2012 that it’s hard to know where to start. This is a city in serious trouble, with unstable finances, a severe housing crisis, increased poverty and extreme wealth, a shrinking middle class, crumbling and unreliable infrastructure, a transportation system that’s a mess, no coherent energy policy — and a history of political stalemate from mayors who have refused to work with progressives on the Board of Supervisors. Now that Ed Lee has won a fouryear term, he and the supervisors need to start taking on some of the major issues — and if the mayor wants to be successful, he needs to realize that he can’t be another Gavin Newsom, someone who is an obstacle to real reform. Here are just a few of the things the mayor and the board should put on the agenda for 2012: • Fill Sup. Ross Mirkarimi’s seat with an economic progressive. This will be one of the first and most telling moves of the new Lee administration — and it’s critical that the mayor appoint a District 5 supervisor who is a credible progressive, someone who supports higher taxes on the rich and better city services editorials

for the needy and is independent of Lee’s more dubious political allies. • Make the local tax code more fair — and bring in some new revenue. Everybody’s talking about changing the payroll tax, which makes sense: Only a small fraction of city businesses even pay the tax (which is not a “job killer” but is far too limited). Sup. David Chiu had a good proposal last year that he abandoned; it called for a gross receipts tax combined with a commercial rent tax — a way to get big landlords and companies (like law firms) that pay no business tax at all to contribute their fair share. That’s a good starting point — but in the end, the city needs more money, and the new system should be set up to bring in at least $100 million more a year. • Create a linkage between affordable and market-rate housing. This has to be one of the key priorities for the next year: San Francisco’s housing stock is way out of balance, and it’s getting worse. The city’s own General Plan mandates that 60 percent of all new housing should be available at below-market-rate prices; the best San Francisco ever gets from the developers of condos for the rich is 20 percent. The supervisors need to enact legislation tying

the construction of new market-rate housing to an acceptable minimum level of affordable housing to keep the city from becoming a place where only the very rich can live. • Demand a good communitybenefits agreement from CPMC. The California Pacific Medical Center has a massive new hospital project planned for Van Ness Avenue — and so far, CPMC officials are refusing to provide the housing, transportation and public health mitigations that the city is asking for. This will be a key test of the new Lee administration — the mayor has to demonstrate that he’s willing to play hardball, and refuse to allow the project to move forward unless hospital officials reach agreement with community activists on an acceptable benefits agreement. • Make CleanEnergySF work. A recent study by the website Energy Self-Reliant States shows that by 2017 — in just five years — the cost of solar energy in San Francisco will drop below the cost of Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s fossil-fuel and nuclear mix. So the city’s new electricity program, CleanEnergySF, needs to be planning now to build out both a large-scale solar infraCONTINUES ON PAGE  >>

OPINION Dear Mr. Mayor, During the next week you will be appointing the a supervisor for District 5, an area of the city that has been historically considered the most progressive part of one of the most progressive cities in the country. It will be a signature decision for you in the next year, and will reveal the tone of your administration. Will you be a consensus mayor — or will you carry on your predecessor’s fight with progressives? You have many qualified choices, but there is probably only one on your list that a majority of progressives would consider a clear progressive choice: Christina Olague, president of the Planning Commission. There are some who have hesitations about her, but ironically those hesitations are based on her relationship to you and her support for your candidacy for mayor. I have to admit, as a supporter of progressive Supervisor John Avalos for mayor, I shared some disappointment that she didn’t support John. I’m sure there’s intense pressure on you to choose a more moderate choice, and I’m sure there are from your perspective some valid points to that argument. That said, District 5 deserves progressive representation. I am a Haight resident, and I ran for Supervisor in District 5 in 2004. Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi came in first, I came in second, and Lisa Feldstein came in third. Both Lisa and I have spoken repeatedly about whether we would run next year, and we have even discussed running as a slate. Most political analysts think one of us would have a decent shot at winning — but I think both of us would support Christina, assuming that her votes continue to reflect her commitment to the progressive values of the district. Christina not only supported you, she also supported Mirkarimi in 2004, and Matt Gonzalez when he ran for supervisor in 2000. She was appointed to the Planning Commission by Gonzalez and has been reappointed repeatedly by progressive supervisors to that commission. While her votes have not been perfect, by and large, her record is excellent; she has never succumbed to pressure, has listened well to all sides, and has ultimately done what she thought was right.

For example, she stood up for tenants rights when the landlord from Park Merced came to the Planning Commission to ask that 1,500 apartments be demolished, all of which were subject to the city’s rent control ordinance. She recognized the flaws in the landlord’s argument that a side agreement (negotiated without the local tenant groups involved) would prevent rent hikes and evictions. Olague was on the right side of history on the Park Merced deal, and has a long record of building tenant and senior tenant power. That’s the kind of leadership we need for District 5, an area comprised of primarily renters. I believe Olague will be a supervisor tenants can trust. I can’t guarantee that all progressives will stand down if Olague gets the seat. The ego game is what it is. You have learned that from politics, I’m sure. But I think most progressive institutions and progressive activists will see her appointment as a victory and will support her candidacy for Supervisor next fall, as they should if she shows that her votes reflect the trends and values of District 5. With Christina Olague, you have a win-win. You appoint a supervisor who reflects the progressive values of the district and who is also electable in November. 2

The money from the city’s generation can be used to purchase distribution facilities to phase out PG&E altogether. • Don’t let Oracle Corp. take over even more of the waterfront. The America’s Cup continues to move forward — but at every step of the way, multibillionaire Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is trying to squeeze the city for more. Mayor Lee has to make it clear: We’ve given one of the richest people in the world vast amounts of valuable real estate already. He doesn’t need a giant TV screen in the Bay or more land swaps or more city benefits. Enough is enough. There’s plenty more, but even completing part of this list would put the city on the right road forward. Happy new year. 2 editorials

Tim Redmond Tredmond@sfbg.com My gut response to the America’s Cup was always like this: I love a party. I love a big party, and a party that brings lots of visitors and money into San Francisco is a great thing. But you have to remember that at some point the party will be over, and somebody’s got to clean up the mess and pay for the damage. And right now, in San Francisco, when the party’s over, the big winner will be a multibillionaire named Larry Ellison, and the rest of us will be paying for it. That said, the party’s going to happen. There may be a little bluster about the Environmental Impact Report, but the 34th America’s Cup race will take place in the waters of the San Francisco Bay, and a whole lot of people will be coming into town to see it. So we better be ready, and I’m not sure we are. I read the draft EIR section dealing with transportation and traffic, and it’s kind of crazy. The planners are projecting about 25,000 new vehicle trips a day — and that’s just into San Francisco. Sausalito and the East Bay cities will have their own issues. There are pictures of projected parking areas along the waterfront, including Crissy Field. There are plans to close the Embarcadero, but only the northbound lanes. Additional Muni service will be able to handle about 1,200 riders a day. That’s way less than five percent of the number of people who are projected to be getting around by car. So maybe San Francisco should try something radical that would last way beyond the sailing event. Why don’t we see what it would look like if we banned cars from the entire waterfront, closed all the streets and created a real transit-first city — at a time when the whole world will be watching? No cars at all. Buses for seniors and people with disabilities. Everyone else walks, bikes, or takes a pedicab (that’s a whole lot of jobs, by the way, particularly for young people who can pedal). Could one of the most environmentally conscious cities in the world pull that off? It’s worth a try. 2

Homosexual Republicans are very easy, but the GOProud gay conservative organization really took the pineapple upside-down cake this year. There were so many ways in which it was wrong (defending Newt Gingrich’s antigay stance, courting Michelle Bachman, inviting Ann Coulter to speak) but it even twisted the one thing it did right: outing Rick Perry’s top pollster after the Perry campaign’s famous anti-gay television ad.

By the RootS By Caitlin Donohue caitlin@sfbg.com heRBWiSe Where (besides this column, of course) do you get the latest on marijuana? When it comes to distributing accurate information about buds, Steph Sherer, executive director of medical cannabis advocacy group Americans for Safe Access (ASA), makes no bones about her organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of our members depend on us for news,â&#x20AC;? she told the Guardian in a recent phone interview. Even when clashes between marijuana proponents and the government are brought to light â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not always a given in this political climate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sherer finds the one note handling of cannabis issues by the mainstream media troubling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Cannabis] gets thrown on [journalists covering] judicial beats instead of getting picked up by the human interest, or the health and science side of things,â&#x20AC;? she said.

ASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to this dearth of useful reporting on cannabis was to develop a free iPhone application that serves as a media catch-all for medical marijuana advocates. At no cost, anyone concerned with losing their right to access their medicine safely â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or who wants to learn the latest about the sticky green â&#x20AC;&#x201D; can now download an interface that pulls together news updates, alerts for upcoming political actions, and materials that can add to oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activism repertoire; things like phone numbers for legal counsel and advocacy training videos. For Sherer, the app has the potential to empower the people in the crossfire of the ongoing clashes between the federal government and state-legal growing and retail facilities: patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are creating a platform that empowers people to be their own advocate. The people who can advocate for this the best are the people who are affected.â&#x20AC;? 2

3ERVING THE#ASTRO SINCE

aPPeTiTe In its opening weeks, AQ in the Mission reminds me of lauded Commonwealth and Sons and Daughters. At all three restaurants, precision marries inventiveness â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at a reasonable cost. AQâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starters are $9 or $13, while entrees are $24 (prices are lower at lunch). After dining in cities the world and country over, I can vouch that it is rare to see this level of skill and creativity at this price. Seasonal menus are a dime a dozen here, but how often do you see seasonal trees and plants with seasonal bar glassware, and a seasonally changing bar top? As AQâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bar morphs from copper to Italian marble for the winter and fall leaves enliven, the space exudes celebratory beauty. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exposed brick, funky whisk lighting, open kitchen, and a ridiculously cool basement lounge with mid-century lamps and couches viewable from a minibridge walkway at the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entrance. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the food. Ownerexecutive chef Mark Liberman combines New York and San Francisco sensibilities with Mediterranean and French influences. But when it comes to style and ingredients, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decidedly Californian. (Liberman has cooked on both coasts, as well as in France and Napa, and with Daniel Boulud and JoĂŤl Robuchon in Vegas). Nuance prevails without getting mired in overwrought fussiness. Starters are small, but entrees are as filling as they are complex. All this comes into focus when you taste Monterey squid and charred avocado ($9). Parsnips and

grapefruit add brightness, while black sesame char over silky avocado ushers in a dish rich, earthy, unusual. A delicate starter, it is rife with flavor. I adore boudin noir (blood sausage or black pudding, depending on if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re from the US or UKIreland) and Libermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version is a thrill. A warm, spiced pile of tender meat (not in a sausage casing) is companion to chestnuts done three ways ($9): raw, confit, and as a cream sauce. With quince and sorrel, the dish pops. At this point, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m catching my breath at the level of detail and sapidity, recalling countless basic salads or sandwiches Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had for the same price. Not as revelatory as the charred avocado or boudin noir, a toasted barley and Dungeness crab dish ($13) tossed with mushrooms and Douglas fir, still pleased, as did the cauliflower ($9) in various iterations from charred to raw, doused in vadouvan spices with golden raisins. In the Autumn spirit, roasted pumpkin ($10) sits alongside carrots, ancho cress greens, with a heaping scoop of mascarpone cream. Even a little gem salad in buttermilk dressing ($10) fends off typicality with poppy seeds, watermelon radish, and cured sardines. On the entree front, one witnesses Libermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s range in a juicy, utterly satisfying slow-cooked veal breast (all entrees $24), subtly candied in orange, accompanied by unfried, plump sweetbreads and broccoli. He does not leave vegetarians in the shadows with Kohlrabi â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bourguignon.â&#x20AC;? Kohlrabi, a brawny German turnip, stands stoically in the center of the plate, a root sprouting from the dish with flair. music listings

Notes of horseradish and star anise peek out, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the red wine sauce that must be lapped up. Desserts ($6 lunch, $8 dinner) are equally expert in detail but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wholly captivate. I enjoyed ginger cake with Asian pear and salted toffee, cooked in Amaro Montenegro, and a devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chocolate cake dusted in coffee and smoked streusel, with shavings of roasted white chocolate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although I could have used more smoked streusel to bring out the earthiness of the cake. A winning team of talented bartenders, helmed by Timothy Zohn, is worth a visit alone and should be a new go-to for cocktailians. (All menu cocktails are $10.) Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chill diminishes when sipping a New Amsterdam # 1: raisininfused Bols Genever, maple syrup, Old Fashion bitters, and a splash of apple cider. Head south with Mexican Piano: Espolon blanco tequila, huckleberry syrup, lime, and tarragon, topped with a torched bay leaf. The menu contains lovely aperitif and digestif cocktails, many amaro based, with a section of classics given seasonal treatment, like a sazerac of date-infused Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reserve Rye, sugar, and Peychaudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter bitters. (The vintage glassware is gorgeous) Already, AQ feels like â&#x20AC;&#x153;the whole package.â&#x20AC;? 2 AQ Mon.-Sun. 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 5:30 p.m.-11 p.m. 1085 Mission, SF.

1998 2006

HoLEynESS By L.E. LEonE le.chicken.farmer@gmail.com CHEAP EATS Remember when we used to go out to Ocean Beach on New Years Eve nights and burn Christmas trees? I want to do that again. I think you can still have a bonfire, right â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at the end of the park? Maybe next year. Over the last couple holiday seasons I have been gradually feeling my way back into the spirit of things â&#x20AC;&#x201D; last year by visiting Joshua Tree and hacking a chickenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head off, and this year via the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; American tradition of watching football on TV and eating potato chips and geese. That was Christmas Eve. I even got some presents for people! At this rate, by 2013 I will be a good Christian. Until then though, and with due respect to Georgie Bundleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avocado-smoked goose (out of this world), I think my favorite Christmas Day tradition is how the Jews do: Chinese food and a movie. There were two shows we would have preferred, but for the occasion it seemed like a good idea to choose a chosen personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: Woody Allenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Midnight in Paris, which was by Christmas only still playing in Berkeley. Now, I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unpopular to like Woody Allen, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help it, I still do. He repeats himself, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predictable, he has a favorite type font, and all the other old problems ... but: still fucking funny, and in this case even sweet, to boot. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a movie reviewer. Hi. My new favorite insecticide is Orange GuardÂŽ, because it works. And smells good. As part of my re-entrification into religiousness program, I have been practicing genocide. On ants, of which Oakland has several. In fact, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure Woody Allen played an ant in an animated movie once, in case youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for a tie-in. Just so you know though, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to find my way â&#x20AC;&#x201D; via the scenic route, as usual â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to Chinatown. Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Christmas morning, late morning, before the movie. And as it happens there was a line of ants marching in under our cottage door while we were marching out, so I got the Orange GuardÂŽ, sprayed the franks and beans out of them, and then slipped on editorials

the mess my massacre made and almost broke my leg. Restaurantwise, as usual Hedgehog had done her homework, and mine too. We went to Gum Kuo, because they open early and have Chinese donuts. It was the kind of place where we were the only whiteys in the place. The waitressperson seemed to want to ignore us, which gave us time to study the donuts before ordering them. They are sliced crullerlike thangs that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to dunk into rice porridge, or jook. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m honestly not very much interested in porridge, or jook. No. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll dip my own personal Chinese donuts in a steaming bowl of roast duck won ton noodle soup, thank you. And they were delicious, drowned suchwise, but unnecessary, because roast duck won ton noodle soup is a big enough breakfast for me any day of the week â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Christmas included. And that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even everything. We also had fried chicken wings, which were weak, and some barbecued pork and cilantro rice rolls, which were strong. Hedgehog wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t convinced, but I loved them. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re chopped up pieces of pork with tons and tons of cilantro, wrapped in a gooey rice dough and drenched with something soy saucy. Admittedly, the rice wrapper was overdone and gloopy, but the insides were so good I was almost thankful for the flaw. Otherwise, my head might have unscrewed and shot through the ceiling. Which would have been embarrassing. The soup was not out of this world, but the duck part was excellent, and the won tons had discernible shrimps in them, and the noodles tasted homemade, and, hey, maybe it was a little out of this world. In any case, we had a good time. By the time we left there was a line out the door of the place. And then it was like that after the movie, too. This leads me to believe that Hedgehog and me are ahead of our time. Although: there are other possible interpretations. 2

Traipse through forward-thinking art instillations at nearby galleries as part of Art Murmur, then pop into the Uptown for an early start — doors are at 6 p.m. so there’s ample drinking time before bands. And those bands are high quality. Every time I see Grass Widow live, I’m smacked with its sheer blistering force; last catching the act upon its return from tour at a Public Works show featuring the resurgent Erase Errata, I was again swept up by the pummeling skills of guitarist Raven Mahon, drummer Lillian Maring, and bassist Hannah Lew. Art, drinks, and cheap-o rock’n’roll, it’ll be a solid First Fridays escape from reality. (Emily Savage)

Light Smoke)” was a restrained bit of deep tech house released on Berlin’s Poker Flat Recordings. A steady bump with a little shake and some alternating clipped keys and snares for five minute — it didn’t slow build, it pleasantly idled — until a pair of brooding, stressed male vocals dropped into play. While Scissor and Thread — a Brooklyn-based label Harris started with players including French DJ (Tony) Anthony Collins — bills itself as an independent rather than dance imprint, the releases so far from Harris and Black Light Smoke sound quite promising.

Starfucker Reptilians, the latest LP from Portland, Ore.’s Starfucker, shows a clear obsession with death.

The video for Stripmall Architecture’s “Radium Girls” features a neon-painted Rebecca Coseboom making weird “come hither” faces as she sings into the camera. It’s trippy and alluring, and it’s precisely how I would describe the local quartet’s dark-tinted pop music. Though Stripmall Architecture might be somewhat under your radar, founding couple Rebecca and Ryan Coseboom have worked with DJ Shadow, and Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie, and toured the country with Bob Mould. The group wails on guitars and synthesizers, but Rebecca’s angelic voice is the driving force of its sound. After watching “Radium Girls,” I found a bunch of clips of the freaky light show the band puts on for live performances. So, you should probably check them out.

The Proud Local playwright Aaron Loeb’s previous work was entitled Abraham Lincoln’s Big, Gay Dance Party and featured a chorus line of dancin’ beardos in stovepipe hats. His latest, The Proud, workshopping at Dance Brigade’s Dance Mission Theater, features a more serious subject matter (presented in collaboration with Iraq Vets Against the War, the play is about post-traumatic stress disorder) — but a no less memorable chorus, in the form of Dance Bridgade’a formidable drummers and dancers. The Proud is drawn from interviews with Bay Area veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, focusing on both PTSD and — in keeping with Dance Brigade’s commitment to feminist themes — the treatment of women in the military. Even in “staged reading” form, The Proud promises to be powerful stuff. (Eddy) Sat/7, 8 p.m.; Sun/8, 6 p.m.; Mon/9, 5 p.m., free

Saturday 1/7 Phonte and 9th Wonder It’s a little hard to wrap my head around the notion that Charity Starts At Home, released in September, is the debut solo album from North Carolina Justus League rapper Phonte. One of the most straight-talking, artistically varied artists around, Phonte has done practically everything but a solo album: classic underground records with the group Little Brother, the electronic R&B project Foreign Exchange with Dutch producer Nicolay (hip-hop’s answer to the Postal Service), and alter-egos like Tigallo and the hilariously authentic old school soul singer, Percy Miracles. Among it’s highlights, Charity sees the MC once again collaborating (after a 6 year break) with top-tier producer and former Little Brother member 9th Wonder.

KING OF THE BEACH

At 74, the legendary Dick Dale keeps riding those surf guitar waves BY EMILY SAVAGE emilysavage@sfbg.com MUSIC In the beginning, the ocean was quiet. And before Dick Dale, the chords were thin, flat, and sweet. A young surfer growing up in picturesque 1950s Southern California, Dale changed the course of rock’n’roll with the thick, wet reverberating sound of Middle Eastern-influenced surf guitar and a little song called “Misirlou.” On that same album, 1962’s Surfer’s Choice (Deltone), he released crashing waves of perma-hits, from the similarly instrumental first hit “Let’s Go Trippin’ ” with its walking guitar line, to juicy-hippie pop track “Peppermint Man.” In the decades that followed, Dale influenced an expanding scope of musicians with innovative style, new amp sounds created with the help of

pal Leo Fender, and his own signature guitars. He’s lead a paradoxical life, the eccentric icon keeping exotic animals (most notably, a pet jaguar), but also a ‘60s-famous rocker who never touched a drug in his life. Thanks to healthy living and strong values, he’s in a continuous prime despite lifelong illnesses; he keeps playing, keeps touring, and has hopes to get back to the beach soon. I spoke with the maestro on the phone days before the holidays in anticipation of his Oakland show this weekend; in a friendly, frank, and meandering conversation he openly discussed his storied past, his eternal love for the water, and a surprising favorite instrument: SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN You’re about to go back out on tour?

SFBG Where’s your home base now? DD I live near Twentynine Palms, actually Wonder Valley above Palm Springs. I still have my boats in Balboa in Newport Beach though, I came there in 1955. I came first to Southwest LA then to Balboa where I created what I created in the Rendezvous Ballroom — [it was] where all the big bands played in the late ‘50s. I created the first power amplifiers with Leo Fender, we put transformers and big 15-inch speakers. That’s why they call me not only the King of the Surf Guitar — ‘cause I was surfing everyday — but also the Father of Heavy Metal because I played on 60-gauge guitar strings, and strings are normally small, thin, but mine, they called ‘em telephone cables, because I wanted a big, fat sound.

In Europe we play to 490,000 people outdoors, then we go play fairs. But I like the club circuit, I’ve been doing it so many years. It’s a good because it’s a personal thing. I’ve been dealing with cancer for the last five years and diabetes on top of that, and when they see me on stage, it’s like a big club [atmosphere], and they say how can he do that without taking drugs? I’ve never had a drug in my body in all my life. I don’t take pain pills, never had alcohol in my body in my life. Your body is your temple. I’ve been a vegetarian for many years, never ate anything with a face. That’s what gave me the strength to fight the cancer. The people, they see me performing and say ‘wow, how do you keep doing that?’ When I was 20 they gave me three months to live from rectal cancer. I’m still here at 74, doing 30 concerts in a row. When I get to performing I just don’t leave. I get at the doorway with my wife Lana and I talk with the people and sign until everybody leaves.

I’m self-taught. Never took a lesson. Piano being my favorite. And I always played trumpet, sax, accordions, and harmonicas — you name it! I was just inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville. That’s the real deal, that’s where you’re voted upon by over a hundred thousand players, musicians. SFBG And how’d that feel? It must’ve been exciting. DD That was the real thing! That other [rock history museum], that’s just governed by a dozen people around a table. I really never paid attention to any of these though really, I’ve always been a rebel in the business. The big agencies and recording companies, they don’t like me, haven’t liked me since I was a beginner in this business because I knew what they were doing when they had these kids sign — they were taking away all their royalties. I tell the kids now, don’t sign with a big company, the minute you sign, you sign over your rights. SFBG Do you meet a lot of younger bands? Do you see your influence on their music? MUSIC LISTINGS

DD Yeah, they all open up for me. It’s been going on and on though. I found Jimi Hendrix when he was playing bass for Little Richard in a bar in Pasadena for 20 people. Stevie Ray Vaughan, his first records he learned on were Dick Dale records. I’m the guy who created the first power amplifiers with Leo Fender. In fact, I just got through doing one of the songs on the album for Glen Campbell’s last album. Glen played backup guitar in my recording sessions back at Capitol [in the 1960s]. SFBG Do you ever think about releasing new material? DD My son, Jimmy [who’s 19], he matches me note to note, but I also taught him drums like Gene Krupa. Jimmy and I, we do dueling guitars. We just created two new guitars. Jimmy has one called the Jimmy Dale Signature Kingman guitar, and I have the Dick Dale Signature Malibu guitar. And my guitar is about threequarters size so you can put it in a car and play it. It’s something I’ve been screaming about for 20 years, nobody would listen. Finally Fender wanted to me to do something and I said I won’t do it unless you make this guitar.

ARTS + CULTURE: MUSIC On acoustic guitars it’s usually six-to-eight inches deep to make a big sound, but they don’t realize its unnatural for the average human to put their arm over the top of the guitar and start strumming, you get a cramp in your back, the older you get, the quicker that comes. I’ve always said ‘why can’t I just drop my arm straight down?’ Instead of eight inches deep, make it three inches. They all said ‘you’re not going to get the sound.’ When you have molecules for mahogany, they’re a certain shape, you strike a note with a string, it’ll go ‘BING!’ The note wants to travel like a tsunami wave, a continuation, so it travels through the back, up the side, but when it goes to the top base with a different wood, it’s like somebody changed the recipe for your soup. You’re going to hear the string, but you’ll never hear the color of the sound, the pureness, undisturbed. I tried to explain that to them using one wood so it’ll be all the same molecules.

DD Yeah, everybody can walk all over me now. No, I’m just joking, I make fun of everything. I used to surf the pier all the time.

TRASH There have been a number of documentaries lately reflecting a fascination with Detroit as a ruined giant, our very own (barely) living Pompeii. Local residents have made films lamenting the extreme poverty and the bungled public-corporate policies that largely created it. Non-locals, particularly those state-funded Europeans, have made others whimsically extolling the environ’s pockets of reversion to agrarian culture — seeing utopian futurism there rather than a grimly comic last resort. Or they’ve exploited its accidental status as the world’s largest open-air gallery for the aesthetics of extreme urban decay. James R. Petix’s It Came From Detroit is like none of the above. In fact the movie it most resembles in some ways is Doug Pray’s 1996 Hype!, which documented the still-fresh boom and bust of grunge — a phenom you may have thought about recently given the, er, hype attendant around Nevermind’s 20th anniversary. About a decade after Seattle flew the flannel flag high, Detroit too had a musical moment that conquered the nation ... or at least was supposed to. Motor City’s answer to grunge — as framed by a media finally certain it had found the ever-elusive “next Seattle” — was garage, a term that had already gained some new traction from the 80s Paisley Underground and related 60s revivalist movements. Sporting chops barely above the Shaggs level when they started out, turbulent trio the Gories’ It Came from DetroIt: All THe goRy, eR, willfully primitive goRieS DeTAilS. abandon triggered something, igniting a DIY scene that would eventually encompass such stellar acts as the Wildbunch, the Hentchmen, the Go, Detroit Cobras, the Dirtbombs, Electric Six, and more. The scene was primed to explode, and when the White Stripes became Cover Boy and Girl on music mags ‘round the world, their improbable success seemed sure to spread. A publicity frenzy peaked in 2003, when the Stripes vs. Von Bondies “feud” reached maximum impact via Jack White’s fist on Jason Stollsteimer’s face. But the rough-edged, rootsy focus of Detroit’s disparate new music stalled short of making further commercial inroads; while their sounds ranged from punk blues to goth bluegrass and beyond, nearly all the bands had the kind of live dynamic that can only be muted in the recording studio. The label-signing frenzy fast over, for most it was back to the tranny bars, bowling alleys, and coffee shops that had served as Gories venues early on, back to the lowly dayjobs (when found) and sleeping in cars when even rock bottom rent is too much. But the myriad interviewees in It Came don’t seem particularly disillusioned. As more than one points out, when you’re from Detroit you keep your expectations low and make music for love, because nobody’s gonna become a star. Almost nobody, that is.

The future seemed bleak for what was once a promising project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the chance of a lifetime for Bay Area septet the 21st Century. Now, a full year after its intended release, the colorful debut album, The City, will see the light of day. The struggle for The City began in 2010 with Kickstarter. Well, technically it began with an idea. Multi-instrumentalist Bevan Herbekian had been bouncing around the world since graduating from U.C. Santa Cruz. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come to San Francisco, the city closest to his Northern California-born heart, then promptly traveled to Europe, back to SF, next out to the Middle East â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Israel, Egypt, Jordan â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a quick stop in New Orleans and he was again back to the Bay. During those years, he was collecting sound. A guitarist, bassist, pianist and singer-songwriter since age 12, he fiddled with mandolin and banjo. In Jerusalem, he was gifted a small guitar and ended up busking a few times at a local shuk. Upon Herbekianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to San Francisco, he decided to create the band of his dreams, an expansive folk-pop act with intricate arrangements, multi-part harmonies, and plenty of acoustic instruments. He gathered up friends, former bandmates, and a few Craigslisters, and created the 21st Century. The band now includes a lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, bassist, drummer, keyboardists, a trumpet player, a set of musical sisters, and the occasional live saxophonist. Herbekian then worked on a set of creamy folk-pop tunes with abstract lyrics touching on the editorials

darkness and ebullient light of moving to a new city, specifically San Francisco (though he now resides in Berkeley). Sitting in the eternally packed Mission Pie, Herbekian recounts crafting the songs for The City, while he was living just down the street from the restaurant, near 25th and Bryant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[the song] â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We Are Waitersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has some specifics about living in San Francisco, in the Mission,â&#x20AC;? he pauses, taking a moment to collect his thoughts, â&#x20AC;&#x153;[itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] about being young, living in this city, and going back and forth between feeling exuberant and like you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to reconcile that with adulthood.â&#x20AC;? A common refrain in this adult-kid city of ours. He recounts the battle to release The City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It honestly felt like this project was fated to never be completed. There was always some catch, some snag.â&#x20AC;? In the summer of 2010 the band met a producer who wanted to record and promote the album. Void of funds enough to travel and record, the 21st Century turned to Kickstarter and brought in $11,000, which Herbekian describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;nutsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly amazing.â&#x20AC;? With funding in place, the band flew to Texas, recorded the album, then returned home to await mixing. Something got lost in translation however, and the mixes, which was returned to them months after recording (in spring of 2011) were â&#x20AC;&#x153;way off the mark.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Our music] is relatively popbased, but I like to think that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of artistry to it. We really pay attention to the details and do all these big arrangements, but the mixes just sounded like glossy top 40 pop,â&#x20AC;? explains Herbekian. He wanted more Brian Wilson, less picks

Justin Bieber. He next made the difficult decision to part ways with the producer, gather the loose tracks, and find another way to finish the album. A few band members left at this point, and Herbekian felt the pressure weighing down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Four weeks after that decision was made we were left with a fraction of our musical family, still in debt, and no relationship with the person who we were hoping was going to be our ticket to something â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and all these sessions we had no idea what to do with.â&#x20AC;? Herbekian had worked on home recording projects, but nothing of this scale. By chance, one of the band members was pals with Ben Tanner, a touring musician and producer who works at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had him take a shot at the song that I thought was the absolute worst and he resurrected it.â&#x20AC;? Tanner continued to resurrect the album, piece by piece, working closely with Herbekian. The two wrote tireless emails and many late night phone calls transpired; they were sending mixes back and forth for months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never met him in person but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a saint to me,â&#x20AC;? Herbekian enthuses. The hard work has paid off, and Herbekian beams as he finally holds the completed album in his hands. The Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release party is this weekend at Red Devil Lounge and he can hardly believe it. At this point the process has taken so long that the band already has a batch of new songs, two full albumsworth. For this one, Herbekian says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might just go back to recording it ourselves.â&#x20AC;? 2 The 21sT CenTury With the Blank Tapes, Mark David Ashworth, and Muralismo Fri/6, 8 p.m., $10 Red Devil Lounge 1695 Polk, SF (415) 921-1695 www.reddevillounge.com

arts + culture: theater By RoBeRt AvilA arts@sfbg.com tHeAteR In early December, Christopher W. White, artistic director of Bay Area ensemble theater company Mugwumpin, showed me around the cool, slightly fusty basement rooms of San Francisco’s Old Mint. Used apparently for storage now, this large subterranean area beneath the Doric columns and Greco-Roman grandeur of “the Granite Lady” was where, beginning in the latter 19th century, the action really happened: the whitehot smelting of money, in one of the most active U.S. mints in its day. You wouldn’t know it now to look around at the gutted rooms with their odd detritus, dim walls, and sunken cement chambers, but in the 1930s one-third of the country’s gold was housed here. It’s a kind of catacomb of local and national history, and especially the history of money power. Theater, by contrast, is not a moneymaking enterprise, generally speaking. For that matter, neither is free wireless energy from the air — one of the grandest ideas to motivate the stunningly brilliant and influential mind of Nikola Tesla, the little remembered Serbian-American inventor, Thomas Edison rival, and father of alternating current (AC). But the two come together quite naturally here, underground, where the spirits of industrial wealth and labor commingle so forcefully. This weekend, which marks the anniversary of Nikola Tesla’s death in 1943, also marks the opening of Future Motive Power, an original ensemble-driven work that culminates a year of research and experimentation by one of the Bay Area’s foremost practitioners of devised theater. Mugwumpin’s production takes place in a section of this very basement, where audiences will alternately sit in and wander around a site-specific piece built from the ground up, with painstaking fidelity to historical details — and a commitment to reaching toward aesthetic and dramatic possibilities in concert with one of the most imaginative minds of the modern age. His approach to science, like many a great innovator, had much in common with an artistic impulse. Exhibiting a transcendent creative ability, he worked with blueprints in his head, visualizing an idea for a new machine in unfathomable detail. He worked obsessively, often going with little or no sleep. His wide-ranging imagination was prodded by a consistent 18 SAN FRANCISCO BAY GUARDIAN

CuRRent events Mugwumpin’s Future Motive Power unearths the buried passions of nikola tesla

desire to serve humanity, but he had few close relationships and found everyday forms of physical contact unbearable. He’d probably merit a few psycho-clinical acronyms today, but let’s just say he was eccentric. Tesla’s brilliance, under-appreciated influence, idiosyncrasies, and sad fate have made him a compelling figure to artists and writers for years, even as his achievements remain historically obscured by, among other things, the legacy of savvy self-promoter Edison. Alternately supported and bounded by the capitalist forces represented in these serious granite walls under the Old Mint, Tesla had a mind and heart remarkably free of the normal limits. His amazing career — balancing tenuously the forces of nature, social idealism, and the capitalist marketplace — speaks to some of the weightiest themes confronting the world today. But those come later. Chris White — who plays the thin, fastidious inventor with a primly sympathetic mien, his eager certainty chastened by the half-lost alertness of the outsider — says the idea for the piece simply began with a song he couldn’t get out of his head: “Tesla’s Hotel Room,” by neo-country act the Handsome Family. “In the last days of wonder When spirits still flew Where we sat holding hands In half-darkened rooms

Nikola Tesla in the Hotel New Yorker Nursing sick pigeons in the halfopen window” The song’s particular brilliance lies partly in connecting Tesla’s scientific genius with a spiritualist age, when science, philosophy, and religious mysticism commingled lustily in séances, theosophy, Swedenborgianism, and the like. It churns tragedy and prophesy in the tradition of the American ballad, channeling that “old weird America” Greil Marcus writes about. That deep stream of popular culture (as opposed to topdown manufactured mass culture) has inspired great things from Mugwumpin before (Frankie Done It 291 Ways, for instance, whose wildly disparate theatrical riffs on the “Frankie and Johnny” ballad was a highlight of the 2006 season.) This is Mugwumpin territory par excellence. In keeping with Mugwumpin’s modus operandi, the yearlong process for Future Motive Power involved research and input from each member of the ensemble (Misti Boettiger, Joseph Estlack, Natalie Greene, Rami Margron, and White). By the time final rehearsals began inside the Mint, the piece contained a purposefully anti-linear, fragmented set of scenes very much in the vein of Mugwumpin’s past work — a kind of archeological approach to storytelling in which an intricately chomusic listings

reographed and physically dynamic set of vignettes and movementdesigns extrapolate freely from certain evocative material fragments. “At one point the J.P. Morgan character [I play] was just a table and tablecloth with my head sticking out of the top,” notes founding company member Estlack. “I’d move around everywhere with this table. I liked that a lot, but we can’t keep everything.” The piece also has a director — something not every Mugwumpin production has used. Susannah Martin, an accomplished local director making her company debut, has come onboard to help guide the shaping of the piece, though she happily admits it’s not a typical gig working with such a highly collaborative, anti-hierarchical ensemble. Much initial time was spent, she says, “figuring out how I can be of best use to everybody. [Unlike productions with other companies,] it’s not my responsibility to hold the vision of this piece — it’s all our responsibility.” It is rare to see so much discussion among all parties during a rehearsal, but it seems to contribute to the unusual dynamism of the results. To watch the actors rehearse, it’s as if the fluid staging aspired to Tesla’s own poetical, mercurial mind — represented here, aptly enough, not just by White but by three female characters (Boettiger, Greene, and Margron) personifying not muses so much as the willful, vaguely unhinged creative forces working with and through him. Rehearsal continues with these three characters pulling a long electric cord into a square, as Tesla’s tussle with rival radio-technology pioneer Guglielmo Marconi (Estlack, who incarnates all Tesla’s principal antagonists including Edison) becomes a rumble inside a boxing ring. A moment later the boxing ring has morphed again into an image of Tesla raising Wardenclyffe, the wireless energy tower he partly erected on Long Island with Morgan’s money — that is, until Morgan discovered it was power to the people Tesla had in mind, and pulled the plug. 2 Future Motive Power Through Jan. 29 Previews Fri/6-Sat/7, 8 p.m.; opens Sun/8, 8 p.m. Runs Fri.-Sun., 8 p.m., $15-$30 (previews, pay what you can) Old Mint 88 Fifth St., SF www.mugwumpin.org

In the Land of Blood and Honey JTBSFTQFDUBCMFXBSNPWJFÂąEFTQJUFUIFTVQFSTUBSCFIJOEUIFDBNFSB By Dennis Harvey arts@sfbg.com FiLM The grudging, occasionally outright hostile tone some critics, culture vultures, and fan types have taken toward In the Land of Blood and Honey points toward a fundamental problem most of them have, though few admit it: the belief that Angelina Jolie is just too damn famous, too much a figure of public speculation and private fantasy, to be taken seriously â&#x20AC;&#x201D; let alone to make a movie about rape and genocide during the War in the Balkans. That bleak historical chapter occurred about the same time that Jolie was a Beverly Hills goth teen into knife play, too many recreational drugs, and her brother (eww), with a fledgling professional resume consisting of modeling gigs, music videos, and an inglorious starring role in 1993â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cyborg 2. Since then she has grown up a lot, and in ways that count (adopting children as well as bearing them, actually working at her â&#x20AC;&#x153;humanitarian causesâ&#x20AC;? rather than using them as photo ops), is sort of a model world citizen as far as ginormous movie stars go. She also paired off with another such example, Brad Pitt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sexiest Woman, meet Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sexiest Man, cue celestial chorus â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and while it may be a coincidence, shortly after that event he started consistently behaving onscreen like a real actor and less like an International Male model. Jolie, too, can act, but since becoming a big star (circa 2001â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorials

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been disappointing how seldom sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been called upon to do so â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as opposed to bringing the near-cartoonish va-voom and ass-whup in movies like 2003â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, 2005â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wanted, and 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Salt. Truth be told, when she has gotten a serious part in a serious film such as 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Changeling or 2007â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s A Mighty Heart, the stubborn glare of celebrity hobbles our ability to let her disappear into the role. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair, but there ya go. Those are highly competent, versatile performances that nonetheless might be more effective if delivered by someone whose first name alone seems to call for an exclamation point. This is all beside the point when it comes to In the Land of Blood and Honey, or ought to be. But the fact is, her narrative debut as writer and director (sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also credited with a little-seen 2007 documentary, A Place in Time) would probably be getting reviews in the respectable-to-rave range if created by anyone else. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly gotten some of those, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be hard-pressed not to glimpse a certain â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who does she think she is?â&#x20AC;? resentment behind others who see the film as heavyhanded do-gooderism from a chick who should leave cinematic commentary about profoundly tragic historical events to people who are less ... er, sexy.

This allows him to save her from the regular rapes other women prisoners suffer at the hands of guards, and eventually to set her up as his protected mistress, a breach of code that is unwelcome news to the ears of his powerful father General Nobosjsa (Rade Serbedzija), a fanatical â&#x20AC;&#x153;ethnic cleanser.â&#x20AC;? This premise is typical movie exceptionalism, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a good step above the usual device of casting a Western character-star as our guide in unpleasant foreign affairs (see: Christian Bale in Zhang Yimouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Rape of Nanking drama The Flowers of War). The queasy but passionate love under impossible circumstances between Danijel and Ajla is compelling, but never as powerful as several instances of madness and cruelty that befall subsidiary characters, like the brutalization of a young woman who volunteers her sewing services, or an infantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughtless fate simply for crying. The shocking senselessness of war atrocities depicted in scenes like these have some of the gut-punch impact of similar bits in Schindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s List (1993).

listic flourishes likewise; Blood and Honey isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impersonal, but eschews any vestige of auteurist â&#x20AC;&#x153;personality.â&#x20AC;? (Comparisons may be odious, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth noting the seriousness Jolie achieves this way is the diametrical opposite of the superficial showiness displayed by Madonnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directorial calisthenics to date.) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immaculately crafted, though, and the assurance with which the director tempers her own screenplayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential for excess suggests a refined intelligence beyond what can be condescendingly explained away by having the funds and ability to hire first-rate collaborators. While not a great movie, Blood and Honey is a very good one; an honorable achievement, not just a vehicle for honorable intentions. Of course the point is nothing more complicated than â&#x20AC;&#x153;War is hell,â&#x20AC;? but how often do movies actually punch that across, as opposed to pouting a bit while making war look exciting? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hate her movie because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful, rich, freaky, not Jennifer Aniston, or anything else related to the larger-thanlifeness of being Angelina Jolie. If someone else made In the Land of Blood and Honey, there would be little question about admiring its stark effectiveness. Of course, if someone else had made it, you probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be interested in seeing it, or even able to â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the one positive her celebrity brings to bear here. 2 in THe LanD OF BLOOD anD HOney opens Fri/5 in San Francisco.

marke@sfbg.com SUPer eGO And so it came to pass a few weeks ago that I found myself chaperoning a dance for 500 queer teens. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not ready yet to be a DILF! But these werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just any queer teens. They were activists from Bay Area Gay-Straight Alliance high school clubs (www. gsanetwork.org), gathered at Horace Mann Elementary in San Francisco to learn how to help their teachers understand the new California FAIR Act, which requires lessons about LGBT history and people with disabilities. This dance was the official afterparty. And yes, there was a drag fashion catwalk portion of the program. And yes I was slain by the gorgeous seven-foot Samoan trans girl in a miniskirt and deconstructed 49ers jersey. Let me tell you all those kids were fierce, from their enormous brains to their personalized shoes. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m flying to the White House in a couple days to meet Obama,â&#x20AC;? one casually told me. And then there they were on her Facebook.) Of course they were wonderfully goofy, too, with fuzzy backpacks, sudden laughs, and rainbow braces. But even though the stylized accouterments of queer rebellion, codified in the 1990s, were in evidence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; pierced lips, dyed hair, ripped tights, â&#x20AC;&#x153;emo faceâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most used mainstream pop signifiers to smooth out any difference, singing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Born This Wayâ&#x20AC;? together on the jungle gym, throwing their hands up to Katy Perry on the dancefloor, doing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time Warpâ&#x20AC;? together during assembly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know this song from Glee,â&#x20AC;? the MC introduced the Rocky Horror classic, and they all did.

LaDy TraGIk Wicked based-goth monthly 120 Minutes fires up its rap side (think Waka Flocka Flame but warped in Hades) with this fascinating queer amalgamation of nihilistic underground pop-rap. Lil Debbie cameo in her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dirty Bitchâ&#x20AC;? video? OK! Fri/6, 10 p.m., $5. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. www.elbo.com

BLeSSeD I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of any better way to deeply breathe in the promise of the new year than by sharing a dance floor with Oaklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Divinyl Echo crew. Deep, spiritual house, a welcoming vibe, and a back-to-basics crowd, with DJs Rob Rhythm, Discaya, and Rafaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;EL. Sat/7, 9 p.m., free before 10 p.m., $5 after. SomaR Bar, 1727 Telegraph, Oakl. www.facebook.com/divinylecho

MayaaM NIDaM Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not too happy with some of the changes the new management has made at the EndUp â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most of my favorite bartenders are gone, the gay nights are horrific, and the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become kind of bland. But the monthly techno Kontrol party keeps pulling me back there with its headliners. Like this striking Tel Avivan, whose fluency in several dance music genres, from bubbling Middle Eastern funk to razor-sharp minimal techno, always impresses. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rumored to have one of the largest record collections around, and she knows how to use it! Sat/7, 10 p.m.-6 a.m., $20. EndUp, 401 Sixth St., SF. www.kontrolsf.com
