I'm Gonna Live Forever 

Wednesday, Jun 29 2011
San Francisco's several storytelling series are growing. Many have added Berkeley or Oakland shows. One recently had an L.A. event. One is drawing national names to its stage and is banging on the door of PBS to get televised. Most have added workshops or open-mic nights to bring in a little revenue and lure new talent. Porchlight, which predates most series in S.F., is also expanding. Tonight's "Brushes with Fame 2: The Quickening" happens outside its regular venue at a movie theater, where performers talk about (what else?) getting close to famous people "as extras, actors, and gawkers." Porchlight has taken on this theme once before, and this time co-founder Beth Lisick promises it will be "louder, bigger, and brasher." If it's anyone we trust to make good on that promise, it's Lisick and Porchlight.

  • 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.'"
