Recognizing that the artifacts left behind from growing up offer fertile ground for mining comedic gold, David Nadelberg has parlayed his concept of a teen angst-exposing stage show from an event called Mortified with 10 chapters around the world into a new 10-part interview series for American television. The Mortified Sessions premieres at 8 p.m. tonight (Monday, Dec. 5) on the Sundance Channel with Ed Helms (The Office) and Mo'Nique in the hot seat; future guests include Rick Schroeder, Alanis Morrissette, Anthony Michael Hall, Cheryl Hines, and San Francisco's own Margaret Cho.

Those craving a louder and more interactive experience may do so locally at the "Mortified SF 6 Yr Anniversary Supershow" on Friday, Dec. 9, at DNA Lounge at 8 p.m. A still under wraps lineup of performers will tell their tales of humiliation, and the one-man metal band Live Evil should help shred through the tears. (Warning: This is starting to sound like not that different of an evening for the DNA.) Admission is $14 in advance and $21 at the door.

  • 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.'"
