Don We Now Our Gay Apparel 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009
“It’s the most fattening time of the year/With pumpkin pie filling and everyone swilling down eggnog and beer/It’s the most fattening time of the year!” At the “Christmas Crap-Array” by the Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco, those are the cleanest and most respectful lines of the evening; the rest of them will mix Hanukkah and the word “dong,” provoke Santa-humping, and rhapsodize on the great holiday tradition of secret toking. We hope horrible music teacher Miss Smith, played to the Jane Lynch hilt by choir director Stephanie Lynne Smith, is on the bill again this year. Because who doesn’t want to see children crying when they abruptly learn the truth about Santa Claus — the truth being that he’s taking valuable attention away from “the birth of our lord and savior Jesus Christ?” Top-notch singing, a warm-fuzzy ensemble feel, and enough snark to get you most of the way to January make the “Christmas Crap-Array” a very poorly named event.

  • 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.'"
