Call it a Religious Observance 

Wednesday, Jun 12 2013

What's the most celebrated holiday between Father's Day and the Fourth of July? For fans of Comedy Central's absurd sitcom Workaholics, it's a special summertime yuletide miracle: Half Christmas. Take the day off work, maybe, and pick up a keg of eggnog (a keg-nog), and in the evening put on your best ugly sweater and go to Cobb's for a screening of the as-yet-unaired Half-Xmas episode of the show. Fans will be gathering in comedy clubs across the country on that half-holiest of nights to watch the episode, which will air the next day on Comedy Central, and to compete in crazy games for redonk prizes. There are many other things too: a Half Christmas costume contest and plenty of opportunities for the devoted to make fools out of themselves in the Workaholics spirit. (Cast members will not, however, be in attendance.) In the six days leading up to the holiday, fans can visit the Workaholics tumblr page to prepare with food and drink recipes, costume and game ideas, and more.

  • 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.'"
