A comedy of Sciences 

Wednesday, Jan 22 2014

Science and comedy, they go together like Batman and a kitten. You might not have thought of putting the two together before, but once you see them, it's pretty great. This week, the California Academy of Science's NightLife event teams up with Sketchfest for Comedy NightLife. Imagine laughing at hilarious stand-up, live podcasts, and competitive erotic science fan fiction against the backdrop of glowing jellyfish and some twinkling butterflies (they twinkle, right?). Have a cocktail and see nerd-friendly comics such as Myq Kaplan, Jackie Kashian, Jon Glaser, Todd Glass, Caitlin Gill, and more, all on a Thursday evening in Golden Gate Park. If you haven't attended a NightLife event before, this is a good first one to see. The event promises a beautiful pairing of live comics and intellectual curiosity. Or, at the very least, live comics and live jellyfish.

  • 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.'"
