Alone, Together 

Wednesday, Mar 31 2010
In Love Humiliation & Karaoke, Enzo Lombard tells a lovely story about riding the bus near the Civic Center farmer’s market. He watches one man beat another with a sack of potatoes. He watches a woman try to board with a live chicken. (The chicken is denied entry, so she angrily wrings its neck, because then “it’s just meat” – occasionally spasming meat.) Lombard’s classic closer: “And I thought about the fucked up things I’d seen in the space of just two or three hours, and I thought to myself” -- pause, slowly turn to audience -- “I could totally live here.” Then he sings some Air Supply. It’s a fantastic show, which you might already know: It’s finishing up a run at Shelton Theater after a run in NYC after a run in S.F. Tonight, Lombard performs an excerpt at City Solo, a series featuring a rotating cast of Bay Area solo stars rolling out bits from their shows. Joining him is series producer Thao P. Nguyen with Fortunate Daughter, Caitlin Gill with The Mental Audit, and Sarita Ocon with Compromise.
Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: April 4. Continues through April 18, 2010

  • 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.'"
