Deliciously Deadly 

Wednesday, Apr 9 2014

In 1537, combining two melodies together was banned by Cardinal Giovanni Morone, as he believed it would distract from God. Centuries later, those same pesky melodies combined with drums and hip swiveling was labeled by some as "The Devil's Music." For the new millennium comes The Seven Deadly Pleasures, a cabaret rock opera premiering at the Costume Shop, honoring all those who would not cast the first stone. The road to virtue is often paved with the pleasures of sinning and singing. Delicious songs, scandal, and transcendence abound and that erstwhile bad boy, the Devil, does indeed get some sympathy. Seven Deadly Pleasures is presented by Goat Hall Productions, Allison Lovejoy, and Margery Fairchild.

  • 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.'"
