Go Out There and Kill 

Wednesday, Feb 3 2010
Comedy about suicide is so rare. Oh, sure, you've got your jokers in the comments on SFGate, but they're not funny. Paolo Sambrano brings it, though. As part of the two-day stage show "On the Periphery of Love," Sambrano mines the depths and comes up with gold in Bi-Poseur, a one-man show focusing on "the quest for the perfect suicide note (otherwise, why do it?)" among other things. He holds down the first evening solo, while Valentine's Day features three other graduates of the performance workshop taught by blowing-the-fuck-up comedian W. Kamau Bell. (We keep hearing rumors with the phrase "Los Angeles" in them.) They are Zahra Noorbakhsh, with a comedy of interracial, -ethnic, and -religion dating, All Atheists Are Muslims; Bruce Pachtman, who you may remember from his long-running show in the late '90s, Don't Make Me Look Too Psychotic, here doing it starts in bed and ends in bed but differently, and Thao P. Nguyen, who offers a rather self-explanatory I'm So Gay.

  • 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.'"
