Solid Gold 

Wednesday, Sep 19 2007
The Heather Gold Show is a talk show, San Francisco-style. The chat-talented host sets the tone at affirming, curious, and honest; her guests follow suit and so do her audiences. Where Gold's television counterparts make the smart person's skin crawl with their pre-screened, homogenous vibes and carefully shepherded "controversies," this talk show delivers genuine conversation. Maybe it gets a little self-congratulatory at moments, but this is an infinitesimally small price to pay for comedians calmly discussing childhood abuse, storytellers full of encouragement, or local-famous authors letting their wit loose. Tonight, Gold's invitees are writer Kirk Read, beatbox looper Kid Beyond, life-gamer Jane McGonigal, and the theme is "Does Art Change Anything?"

  • 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.'"
