The Buddhist parable of the worst horse describes four different horses responding to the pain, anticipated or physical, of a whip. From dashing off at the sight of a whip to undergoing several beatings before departing, each horse chooses a path that has its own spiritual implications. Tonight’s featured artists at RADAR Productions’ The Worst Horse have limited or no acquaintance with Buddhism, and they have been invited to create artwork in response to the tale. Featured performers include the stunning Rhodessa Jones, founder and director of the acclaimed Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women. Also catch hilarious comedian and author Bucky Sinister (author of Get Up: A 12-Step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos), wildly talented local author Ali Liebegott, performance artist and spaz Philip Huang, and a gorgeous short film, Dream of the Wild Horses, from Oddball Film + Video. Practitioners of Buddhism and nonfollowers alike will be drawn in by these original voices ruminating on humanity coping with pain.

  • 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.'"
