Belly Laughs 

Wednesday, Oct 3 2012
While it's hard to think of something more deserving of the term "heckle" than an entire audience masticating on giant burritos whilst a comedian tries to get through an act, that messy confluence of humorous performance and hand-held Mexican food is implicit in the design of the San Francisco Comedy & Burrito Festival. Founders Ameen Belbahri and Jeff Cleary, powering their three-day event off a Kickstarter campaign, bring more than 100 comedians to three dozen events in six venues in the Mission -- legendary home of countless taquerias and the Mission burrito. If it takes off, the festival stands to be a pretty substantial addition to the comedy festival circuit. Either way, God help those comedians who under-perform before a crowd of surly folk armed with newborn-sized meat-bombs.

  • 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.'"
