Amy Sedaris Coming to the Roxie Theatre This December

Here's some big news for the kabillions of fans of pygmy craft doyenne Amy Sedaris. The plucky comic/party planner is appearing at San Francisco's Roxie Theatre this December 4 to read from her book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.

Like her DIY party book, this one is typical (Amy) Sedaris, by which we mean all hysterical and barbed and darling and practical all at once.

Belying the title, tickets cost $100. But it's a benefit for the Roxie, that creaky old box of cinematic treasures, so ponying up a c-note to learn how to make windchimes from soda cans is in no way ironic. It just means you're a good person or a patron of the arts or something!

Also, the $100 gets you into a meet-and-greet with Sedaris, and the Roxie's promising treats and libations.

An Evening With Amy Sedaris

8 p.m. on Sunday, December 4 at The Roxie Theatre, 3117 16th St. (at Valencia). 415-863-1087. Tickets available here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
