Chairman Kamau 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2012
It’s hard to be objective about the brilliance of W. Kamau Bell. Earlier this year, the San Francisco native built a bridge between stand-up performer and journalist when he shared his deep love of the Bay Area comedy scene via a recurring column for SF Weekly's arts blog. He abandoned the post only because the wind took him to New York to star in Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, his own Chris Rock-produced weekly half-hour series that debuted on FX in August. Each episode of Totally Biased combines his astute social and political commentary with the opinions of well-known comics such as Wanda Sykes and Lewis Black, as well as people on the street. Bell’s wit and humor appeal to common sense and open hearts with a healthy bullshit detector. How appropriate that Bell’s stand-up homecoming takes place at The Fillmore, one of San Francisco’s most legendary venues for rock stars.

  • 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.'"
