Father Panic! Resurrects Childhood Horrors With Humor

Father Panic!, Dan Carbone's new solo show now at the Garage, makes a compelling case for giving theater artists the freedom (and the resources) to experiment. The show, a multimedia exploration of Carbone's childhood, was developed as part of the…

Psychobilly St. Patrick's Day

You don't like the color green, tiny men, or beer (Wait, what are we talking about? Everyone likes beer.) But you do like experimental psychobilly rock 'n' roll blues. Armed with a guitar, sleigh bells, and a kick drum the…

You Have Not Seen It All

He's kind of the Daniel Johnston of performance art: Local entertainer Dan Carbone possesses an epic dedication to his art, which could be defined as "being super weird." Plenty of people (art school druggies, mostly) dabble in being super weird,…

San Francisco Fringe Festival

Like asking a question of the Magic 8 Ball, attending the S.F. Fringe is less about finding a definitive answer than about enjoying the possibilities: Fringe shows range from "You can count on it" to "Reply hazy." Cathleen Daly's How…

Bizarre Bazaar

The weeklong anarchy of 50-minute plays known as the San Francisco Fringe Festival tends to scare up bizarre, inventive material, but Elisa DeCarlo distinguishes herself this year by telling a freakish story that isn't even fiction. DeCarlo is a comedienne…

Facial Hair

Steve Winn's amusingly ill-informed article last month on fringe theater in the city suggested that the '60s, '70s, and even the '80s were more adventurous times for playgoing here than the '90s. That might well be true. But how would…
