One at a Time 

Wednesday, May 26 2010
June in San Francisco: As our residents hoist rainbow flags aloft, tether ball gags to studded belts, and crack open new tubs of lube, numerous visual artists gear up to Express Themselves. These homosexual thinkers and feelers bring us their comedy, their song, and their metaphor, as ever, but with an extra dash of enthusiastic GAY! (and Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender). "City Solo" showcases four lesbian artists performing original material: Regard stand-up comedian Janine Brito as she speaks of her life during 1993 and 1994, comedienne Julia Jackson navigating the world of adoption, Thao P. Nguyen telling a vigorous coming-out story, and Martha Rynberg daring you to think beyond the vagina in “Lady Parts.” Nguyen and Rynberg have worked closely with celebrated Bay Area laff man W. Kamau Bell, Brito was the winner of the 2009 S.F. Women’s Comedy Competition, and Jackson has worked with known hams Robin Williams and Dana Carvey. Whether you're proud you’re gay or ashamed you’re not, these giggles are yours to enjoy.

  • 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.'"
