Birthday Boy, oh Boy 

Wednesday, Mar 23 2011
Oftentimes, combining a comedy show with a birthday or bachelorette party means lots of stiff drinks and dildos strapped to the heads of the women tearing it up in their final hours before marriage. These giggling “dickheads” can be a comedian’s worst nightmare, as the rest of the audience tends to be tangentially aware that someone else is also performing laughable acts. The clown onstage tries to eke out a living, meanwhile, begging you to take his (or her) wife. Tonight at Harvey's Funny Tuesdays, series producer (and standup comedian) Ronn Vigh and a cadre of his favorite funny gals celebrate his birthday from the stage. Who then will be the dickheads? Maybe nobody! Maybe everybody! Regardless, the distractions promise to be fewer – or at least orchestrated as part of the act. Ronn’s lineup includes San Francisco-raised Ethiopian-American stand-up comedienne Yayne Abeba, winner of 2002’s Russian River Comedy Competition. Also on deck are Candy Churilla and Susan Maletta. The stiff drinks and celebration are a guarantee, but the headgear is up to you.

  • 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.'"
