A Loose Interpretation 

Wednesday, Mar 17 2010
If you’re looking for a new lease on Passover, the Out of Order Seder is for you. Like telephones, hairdos, and nightclub soundtrack providers (have we so gently navigated from “DJ” to “Selector”?), holidays can get updated to improve their performance or just to expand on their possibilities. Perhaps you're content to chat on your rotary phone with the pigtail cord (though how you get hold of a customer service representative, we don’t know), and you’re trying to find a pencil in your beehive right now. We dig. But instead, maybe you’re looking for a little adventure. A change. Expect cocktails, an MC, and various entertainers engaging attendees with their additions to the holiday. Monologuist and Haiku Tunnel screenwriter Josh Kornbluth is among the artists on deck, as well as Iron Comic creator Nato Green. Veteran holiday rehasher and vocalist Amy Tobin, whose rock opera, The Esther Show, “reinvented the Jewish holiday of Purim,” according to her Web site, also contributes to the festivities. The evening includes the West Coast premiere of "Projecting Freedom," a collection of short films interpreting the Haggadah. No one is asking you to put down your matzo — just to consider doing something new with it.

  • 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.'"
