Pictureplane: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 28 2011

As Pictureplane, DJ Travis Egedy serves a most unusual purpose: He makes house music for punk and indie rock crowds. The Denver resident once characterized his work as "a kind of punk trance," but in reality, his ultra-synthy music is far better at taking you to some distant, exotic place. For evidence of what Egedy's ties to rock have yielded so far, consider his give-and-take relationship with Los Angeles noisemakers Health. In a remix of Health's "Die Slow," Egedy massaged the rough, industrialized track into something soft and sky-like; in return, the band added some sharp corners to his luminescent "Goth Star." It's in everyone's best interest that Egedy continue to strike up such fascinating friendships.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
