All Tangeled Up

If you’ve attended any Earl Dax–produced events, then your fear of performance art has disappeared. You love it! His fine curatorial skills have led him to present work from such luminaries as former Miss Lower East Side, Dynasty Handbag (she looks like she went mano a mano with a snowblower and won), the personal-risk-taking Taylor Mac, and many more. Simply put, Dax gives those of profound talent and poor self-promotion a forum in which to Express Themselves. The Tingel Tangel Club originated at Glasslands in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (the neighborhood currently beating out the Mission as a target for hipster jokes; leave them and their slim-legged pants alone!), and came to San Francisco in March 2008. Since then, the show has brought hot acts from both coasts, and tonight’s S.F. two-year anniversary will pleasure you just the same, with joker darling Marga Gomez, S.F. drag institution Trauma Flintstone, dancer and prankster Keith Hennessy, and on and on (Holcombe Waller! Fauxnique!). Performances are punctuated by DJ sets, giving you the chance to hydrate (so important), shake your rear, and punch the air. The event is hosted by Veronica Klaus and Joey Arias.

  • 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.'"
