Goddamned Funny 

Wednesday, Aug 22 2007
Lizz Winstead is a former executive vice president of Air America Radio, she did a radio show with Chuck D., and she co-created the The Daily Show (that was way before Jon Stewart, but still). She’s also a touring stand-up comic heading to S.F., so right now she’s doubtlessly doing what every political jokester is doing: feverishly penning her last, best Karl Rove jokes. (Even Rove got into the spirit when he resigned earlier this month, ripping this gut-buster on the podium: “I will ask for God's continued gifts of strength and wisdom for you [Mr. President] and your work, your vital work for our country and the world, and for the Almighty's continued blessing of our great country.” Wait, that’s not funny.) Catch Winstead’s political comedy with openers Bruce Cherry and Jason Downs.

  • 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.'"
