Rising costs in the Bay Area have forced many artists to pack up and leave town to find more affordable places to live. Tom DeCaigny is the Director of Cultural Affairs at the San Francisco Arts Commission, and it’s his job to understand the issues that artists and non-profits are facing in this city.

Alton McSween found employment after his release mentoring other formerly incarcerated people through the California Reentry Institute. McSween goes by the name “Coach” -- a throwback to his days coaching high school track. That was his job back in 1992 when he got his first two convictions for burglary. In 2001, he was arrested for petty theft, and got 25 years to life under the state’s three strikes law.

When was the last time you went to the museum and learned how to deejay? Or sat around for hours, listening to rare, mint-condition records? 

It’s not your imagination. Bay commutes are getting longer and longer.

The film 20 Feet from Stardom, which just won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature this past weekend, shines a spotlight on the female singers who sang backup to the biggest soul and rock legends during the 1960s.

40 years ago, in small town bars across the U.K., you could find party goers spinning, twirling and pumping their legs to the fast sounds of American soul music. But, it wasn’t the top 40 Motown sound you’d usually hear, in fact, by that time in the 1970’s, Funk and Disco had already taken over the charts. These kids craved Soul they hadn’t heard yet--rare B sides, and small label releases that were overlooked in the surplus of American-produced Soul music in the 1960’s. DJs in the U.K. began collecting Soul records that were off the beaten track, and often impossible to find again. That specific sound of Soul, and the night-life culture that erupted around it, was branded "Northern Soul."

  Another Hole in the Head is the most popular indie horror and sci-fi film fest in San Francisco and it is marking its tenth year this month by expanding its usual two-week run to three with more locations, more movies, and more local filmmakers. George Kaskanlian spoke with KALW’s Ashleyanne Krigbaum about what creeps you’re in for this year.

It's been 40 years since the first all-night R&B party at the Wigan Casino nightclub outside Manchester, England. The doors didn't open until 2 a.m., and its 1,200-capacity ballroom was packed until dawn with dance-crazy (possibly amphetamine-fueled) soul fans. They called the uptempo vibe Northern Soul, after the region of England that fell in love with rare '60s R&B.

After World War Two, Suisun Bay was a west coast port for the navy’s largest ships. The first grey goliaths arrived in the bay in 1946, and continued coming in over the following decades. They were meant to be a reserve fleet – so in theory, if the Navy ever needed extra ships, this is where they would get them. But for the most part, they never have needed them. And over time, the fleet has become a graveyard – a graveyard that needs a lot of upkeep.

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling experimental. My arms and ears are open to what the universe has to offer, and luckily this weekend, the Bay Area is brimming with new options: from sounds by young producers, to a vast selection of fresh tastes on the world's most popular, brewed beverage. Let's go adventuring this Arts/Culture/Weekend!

It’s the last day of February. That means tomorrow people will gather in the streets to celebrate arts and culture at Oakland Art Murmur’s public event, First Friday. The day carries extra weight this time around, because of what happened at the last First Friday. Things were going well until about ten minutes before 11pm, when a shooting resulted in one death and three injuries, and the incident shocked people who have been patronizing the event since its beginning seven years ago.
