Cash Could Win Money 

Wednesday, Aug 19 2009
We’ve seen Eric Cash pull a grapefruit out of a coffee mug, but that was a long time ago. YouTube shows him putting fire in his mouth and spitting it out again, and his own Web site features a laying-on-glass scenario involving 150 tourists and a high level of BS-ing, aka showmanship. Generally speaking, Mr. Cash is a street performer. Here’s what that means to the Bay Area Laugh Leader Competition: A man who can get random strangers to pay him for calling them retarded can probably eat comedy-club stand-ups for breakfast, lunch, and a light Mediterranean-style supper. He won his round of this tournament back in early July, which puts him in the Aug. 26 semi-finals. Whether he advances to tonight’s championship round is anyone’s guess, but years of working the corner do make him a good bet. Many, many, many other fine local comedians died in the early rounds, all to bring you the finest in entertainment. Enjoy!

  • 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.'"
