Party clown 

Wednesday, Jan 29 2014

Sunday is the last day of SF Sketchfest, and there are great shows to see in the festival's final weekend. But why not close out your Sketchfest experience with something memorably weird and go to the Shakes the Clown live show? Conveniently scheduled at 4 p.m. the Sunday after the Super Bowl, your first crush, Bobcat Goldthwait, will do a live reading from his 1991 oddball cult hit, which describes as, "It looks like we don't have any synopsis for this title yet." Goldthwait, aka Shakes the drunken party clown himself, won't be the only original star showing up for the live reading; Florence Henderson, Julie Brown, and Tom Kenny will all be there to indulge in the strangeness.

Sun., Feb. 9, 4 p.m., 2014

  • 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.'"
