Buggin' Out 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009
What can we tell you about bugs and Cirque du Soleil that you don't already know? Bugs: They jump around, eat eat eat, suck flowers, and wear colors that don't normally go together. Cirque: It's a French Canadian stage show irresistible to all, even those who bizarrely think its "Cirque de So Gay" nickname is an insult. Yeah, you knew all that. But did you know the mystery insect has the hots for the ladybug? All the bugs are hopping around minding their business in the new show OVO, slinging from wires, carrying food from here to there in surprising ways, and making music, like bugs do. But they've all got their inquiring minds on the ladybug's romance, as well as on the big, mysterious, and symbolic titular egg.

  • 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.'"
