In Which We Eat Crowe 

Wednesday, Nov 3 2010
Thank you, David Crowe, for not playing dumb. At the brand-new comedy club inside the fancy old car palace that is also a movie theater, Crowe is the inaugural headliner. Yay! We are grateful for, and also deserving of, this nod to San Francisco's generally high IQ — not for us the meatheaded insult-machine-type comedian. Instead we get the guy whose extended metaphor, “Gasaholic,” starts with an American just burning wood, nothing serious: “I could grow it myself!” and a couple of hysterical minutes later ends with, “So they got me on this 10 per cent ethanol program now ... in 10 years I'm supposed to be clean and solar.” It's funny because it's true and intelligent. Thank you, brand-new comedy club, for not booking dumb.

  • 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.'"
