Looking for Something? 

Wednesday, Jan 6 2010
The first month of a new, potentially apocalyptic decade means one thing for sure: makeovers, makeovers, makeovers. As such, Tiara Sensation, that most unpredictable and willfully ramshackle of Monday night drag clubs, will, after a year and a half of lo-fi magic, move to Fridays, with a new moniker to boot: Some Thing. An apt name if we’ve ever heard one. Though the tiaras will still be sensational, some things at Some Thing will be different: the usual show, still hosted by Jäger-drinking, Little Mermaid theme-song-performing dry spirit VivvyAnne Forevermore, is now followed by a supplementary show and nightcap with revered drag personality Glamamore, which is called Some Thing More. The latter goes in for a little more elegance and put-togetherness than the former, which keeps its unpredictable, madcap character. The craft table, manned by Hot Gloo, remains, and DJ Down-E is in charge of music. Tonight's theme: A Gem in the Rough, followed by the Drool in the Crown. Get it? Got it? Not exactly? Fortunately, not getting it is half the battle — just keep the theme in mind when putting on your Friday best, even if only to misinterpret it.
Fridays, 10 p.m., 2011

  • 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.'"
