Photography couple Emily Trinh & Kevin Kelleher capture the one-of-a-kind experience of attending a punk concert inside a moving train with their series “Next Stop Chaos, Please Hold On.” 

Organized by Bay Area bands Surprise Privilege and False Flag, the show unexpectedly erupts on a BART train from Dublin/Pleasanton that’s swept over by three packed cars of thrashing concertgoers. 

This exhibition showcases never-before-seen images from the event, as well as select photos published on SFGATE, The Drudge Report, and most recently American Photography 39 (American Photography Annual).

Take a trip on a wild, high-energy journey through Kevin & Emily’s lens and experience the raw spirit of a DIY concert like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

How To Get There

Google Map Direction

Coordinates: 37.72703097593382, -122.45000777109482

Put these coordinates into Google Map and it will give you the exact location pin.

By car: CCSF Official Parking information. There is also lots of street parking around the campus. The Visual Arts building is close to Archbishop Riordan High School so if you park near that location it would be a shorter walk to the gallery.

By MUNI Buses: The 43 and 49 buses stops right in front of City College. Do not walk up the big stairs with a big statue in front of it. Instead, go to the right of the statue until you find a curved drive way leading up (Cloud Cir.). Go up Cloud Cir. and keep left. The Visual Arts building should be on your left in 3-5 mins.

It really doesn't matter if you go to the right or left of the statue. But the right of the statue (the side closer to Archbishop Riordan High School) is quicker.

By train: Take the K train, get off in front of the Whole Foods on Ocean Ave. This is the Lee & Ocean Ave stop if you took the outbound train towards Balboa Park. 

Frida Kahlo Way meets Ocean Ave about two blocks away. Find it. Walk on Frida Kahlo Way to Archbishop Riordan High School, cross the street and walk up on Cloud Circle. Keep left and the Visual Arts building will be on your left in 3-5 minutes.
