Overthrowing Capitalist Heteronormativity Has Never Been So Simple!

Transsexual performance artist Annie Danger is smart and weird. These qualities are requirements for being a good performance artist, but let’s set that aside. At faux-professional motivational seminar It’s That Easy!, Danger’s Terry VanWeen (pronounced “van-veen”) brings together elements that, left on their own, would avoid each other: radical left-wing activism and khaki pants. In Danger’s capable hands, however, these natural enemies make comedy and genuine inspiration. Although we don’t recommend throwing fist-sized rocks at Tony Robbins, VanWeen does. On the bullet-point list of assertions made by the cornflower-blue-shirted personal coach is that you will “develop the physical vitality you need to passionately follow through on fighting the man!” Smart. Weird. Part of the National Queer Arts Festival.

  • 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.'"
