Ask The Experts

New York Times op-ed columnist Frank Rich has an acute case of acerbic wit. Maybe serving as that paper's theater critic for more than a decade sharpened his tongue, or maybe it's just because there are a lot of political fish floating around in barrels right now, but he's consistent with the zingers. This is the man who recently wrote, "In the G.O.P., Bush love is now the second most popular love that dare not speak its name." Tonight, the former "Butcher of Broadway" joins his journalistic brethren for a Commonwealth Club panel discussion dissecting this year's presidential election. Michael Tomasky is the editor of the Guardian America, Thomas Powers is the author of The Military Error and Intelligence Wars, Martin Kettle is a writer at The Guardian, and Bob Silvers, the editor of the New York Review of Books, moderates. Wear clothing that can withstand sharp barbs.

  • 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.'"
