Btw, The Mallard has been killing it lately! Do yourself a favor and go see them already!
Oakland-based musician Michael Zapruder‘s new album, Pink Thunder, is quite the creative feat. The album itself, six years in the making, transforms poems by 23 poets into “indie-rock free-verse songs” in collaboration with 36 musicians, and is accompanied by a book of photographs and hand-lettered renderings of the poems involved. Zapruder has also created a series of portmanteaus, found object sculptures with built-in music players (engineered by our friend Mark Allen-Piccolo!). Each portmanteau plays one song from the album.
Those kids look so pumped, the little shits.
Over the past year, Polaroid SF has shot 366 photos of San Francisco taken through the lenses of vintage Polaroid Land cameras, and 50 of them are of the Mission (and at least one of them was inspired by one of our blog posts). This month, they’re bringing their project to the walls of Photobooth on Valencia. The show will be up until the 29th, and there will be an opening reception a week from tomorrow on October 19th, 7-10pm.
So meta. Is La Rondalla gonna hurry up and open soon? I was supposed to have my wedding there.
