Easy Name to Make Bad Jokes About 

Wednesday, Jun 23 2010
Chicago comedian Hannibal Buress must be really good. Not only is he a writer for Saturday Night Live, but at tonight's show, he's also headlining over the funniest person in San Francisco. Who does he think he is? Let's turn this into a contest. W. Kamau Bell is the home team, Hannibal Buress! The away team likes to take the piss out of firefighters -- our nation's heroes -- on national television. W. Kamau Bell, on the other hand, loves kittens. So it's fine to blow into town and be all like, hey, yeah, I'm headlining over your favorite comedian, San Francisco. It's totally fine, Hannibal Buress -- you just better kill. Jen Slusser also performs, holding her own in this comedy firestorm.

  • 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.'"
