Do the Cupid 

Wednesday, Feb 3 2010
Tonight, if you choose a nice prix-fixe Valentine’s Day dinner, you’re going to gaze around the room and have any number of special thoughts, from “Are we that couple who doesn’t talk?” to “Oh, so I had the same idea as that guy in Dad jeans. Aces.” Instead, take some advice from Will "The Thrill" Viharo, who’s been making life interesting for people for more than a decade by pulling back the curtain on yesteryear’s starlets, tiki bars, cocktails, and classic movies while saying, “See?” Tonight, he brings sweethearts back to a gentler time in romance, an iconic, mythological beach of bingo, blankets, bikers, bikinis, and Annette Funicello, all rammed through the Hollywood sausage machine and served up as Beach Blanket Bingo, which screens as part of Thrillville's Valentine's Beach Party. And proving, once again, that his shtick as a hard-driving producer is no act, Viharo worked the phones and lured one of the singing stars of the film, Donna Loren, onstage for a medley of songs. Vintage drive-in movie trailers and Kitten on the Keys round out the night.

  • 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.'"
