  • Brian Goggin: Gatekeeper of Your Impossible Dreams
    Brian Goggin: Gatekeeper of Your Impossible Dreams Sculptor Brian Goggin sometimes seems like a gift from another planet — a sort of Mork, who refreshingly doesn’t quite see the world like the rest of us. Peek inside the mind of Goggin, internationally-known for his iconic San Francisco works from "Defenestration," involving furniture crawling on the outside of a South of Market building to "Caruso's Dream," where the artist suspended 13 glass and steel pianos, pulsing with light, over a busy downtown street.

  • Singer Zena Carlota's Afro-Folk Sound
    Singer Zena Carlota's Afro-Folk Sound When Oakland-based Zena Carlota first heard the kora, a traditional 21-string harp from West Africa, listening to records, she was instantly struck by its sound. After searching album liner notes and discovering the instrument's name, a voice in her head told her she was destined to play the kora. That moment launched her on a journey to Gambia, where she later studied with master players. Now Carlota is one of only a handful of women in the United States who play the instrument.

  • Brontez Purnell's Fearless Art
    Brontez Purnell's Fearless Art Brontez Purnell is an utterly fearless indie zine maker, trained dancer and queer punk rocker who’s fronted Bay Area bands like Gravy Train!!! and the Younger Lovers. Inhibition, trepidation, self-suppression are concepts that simply aren't part of Purnell’s emotional lexicon. As a result, it’s hard to look away when he’s performing, and hard to stop reading what he pours out across the pages.
