Presidential suite 

Wednesday, Nov 13 2013

Those crazy kids from LEVYdance are at it again, this time in a house that's been a home to 44 generals in 66 years and opened its doors to innumerable illustrious guests, including presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Rutherford B. Hayes. The fine domicile in question is none other than the exquisitely preserved General's Residence at Fort Mason, where LEVYdance will restage its site-specific work ROMP. The show mixes a cast of 12 dancers with audience members around banquet tables, taking everyone through the various chambers with humor, athleticism, and intensity, culminating in a feast. ROMP was dubbed one of the "Top Ten Moments in Dance" by the San Francisco Chronicle after its premiere in 2011 — if you missed out then or are hungry for something substantial in advance of Tofurkey Day, celebrate American military history and choreographic innovation here.

Nov. 21-23, 8 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
