Parker Gibbs' Annual Holiday Craptacular: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 21 2011

Every year, late December brings cold weather, rampant consumerism, recreational gluttony, and — thankfully — Parker Gibbs' Annual Holiday Craptacular. It's an SF Food Bank benefit that draws the city's drinking classes out of their wintry caves for a night of merrymaking, liquid cheer, and local music. On the bill this year are such songwriting luminaries as Mark Eitzel and Kelley Stoltz, whose mellow, tuneful erudition will be just the antidote for crap weather, crap Christmas music, and crap-piles of credit-card debt. Headlining as always are Marc and the Casuals, but there are bound to be lots of surprises — and not of the fruitcake sort.

  • 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.'"
