Stephen Lynch is a talented musical comedian. His songs are well-constructed, like maybe you think it’s going to be a Third Eye Blind song or something. But then you hear the words Lynch is singing, about how his girlfriend is a hermaphrodite (“she’s my little girl, she’s my little guy/when I try to please her I get poked in the eye”) or how his wife is divorcing him because he likes rubbing up against young boys on the bus. He sings well, and earnestly, and that makes for a fun juxtaposition. It’s the sort of talent that earned the the New York-based comic a nomination for a Tony Award in 2006 for his lead role in the stage production of The Wedding Singer. If you’re thinking of listening to some of his material before you go see him, make sure you don’t listen to it within earshot of your boss, or little kids. That goes double for you if your boss happens to be a little kid.

  • 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.'"
