Parodying My Religion 

Wednesday, Feb 29 2012
Purim is the Jewish holiday that’s often celebrated by donning crazy costumes and consuming insane amounts of wine. So it’s ripe for parody. The Hub at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco and local sketch group Killing My Lobster saw the potential and created The Whole Megillah 2. Directed by The Hub’s Dan Wolf, the joint performance features sketch comedy, live music, and hilarious short films to commemorate the holiday. Of working with Killing My Lobster, Wolf says, “We were thrilled by the idea of collaborating to produce something unique, hilarious, and with just the right amount of irreverence.” For a holiday that’s earned the nickname “Pour ’em,” we can’t think of a better combination. For those of you who like a little nosh with your laughs, free Hamantaschen from Wise Sons Deli are included. L’chaim!
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: March 2. Continues through March 10, 2012

  • 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.'"
