Gimme a "G!"

There's a little disagreement over the organization of the Ethical Decalogue in the Old Testament. (Is coveting your neighbors' wife and house one sin or two?) In any case, Anglicans, Jews, Catholics, and Lutherans alike seem to agree that a big bush spoke to Moses and laid down the law. How Moses got in the headspace to accept heavenly horticulture is a long, complicated story. There was the slaying of firstborn sons by union buster Pharaoh Seti and bobbing for babies in the Nile with Princess Bithia, not to mention that big Red Sea spectacular and sheep's milk in the Sahara with the Bedouins. So many characters, so many years, so much sand. Almost makes you want to reach for The Bible for Dummies. Leave it to Impossible Productions to come up with something better, a comedic staging of The Ten Commandments: Live! Sit back and relax as the cast brings clarity to some big questions: How long must the chosen people wander through the desert asking, "Are we there yet?" The Voice of God will be played by Mikl-em, Patrick Sims, John Hell, and Sean Owens: It's a very big part.

  • 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.'"
