  • Brian Cybok, Julia Lienke, and Katharine Otis debate the perks and pitfalls of an open marriage.

Jeff Bedillion's Open, about a married couple who decide to have an open relationship, makes no pretense of being ennobling, intellectual, or avant-garde, instead reveling in the banal, the carnal, and the tawdry. But low art must have standards, as SF Weekly theater critics Lily Janiak and Benjamin Wachs discuss in a podcast produced by Benjamin Wachs. Listen to it below.

  • 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.'"
