Riding the SART Train 

Wednesday, May 6 2009
Local comedy troupe the Freeze throws a bass, a drum kit, and five MCs on the stage to play a musical round of “Can you use that in a sentence?” It’s not a spelling bee, though: It’s a comedy production called Super Awesome Rap Team. The skilled musicians and MCs include infamous Lady Sovereign–botherer MC Jelly Donut and his gang, freestyling with words submitted by the audience at the beginning of the show. A three-week run provides ample opportunity for variety and a concerted effort at stumping these folks — check your dictionary to throw the MCs some verbal curveballs for their "improvised freestyle." Bonus points for anyone who can get them to holler "'Improvised freestyle' is a redundant phrase."
Fridays, Saturdays, 10:30 p.m. Starts: May 8. Continues through May 16, 2009

  • 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.'"
