Squealer and Snowball 

Wednesday, Jul 2 2014

It's hilarious to take characters from classic novels and put them in a pornographic version of the present, but when those characters are animals... it's probably even more hilarious. Amy Stephenson and the folks behind Shipwreck, an erotic literary parody series, might have outdone themselves with this month's selection, George Orwell's Animal Farm, which is sure to produce a barrage of laughs and probably a few journeys outside the ol' comfort zone. Six authors (two-time winner Maggie Tokuda-Hall, May's winner Gabriel Cubbage, Kari June and Aleks Kang – both from – Maggie Glover, and Nate Waggoner, in one of his final Bay Area performances) have each re-appropriated one of the revolutionary tale's players and have done lord knows what with them. All stories will be recited in brogue by Steven Westdahl, with audience members voting on their favorite; the winning author then gets to choose a character from the book to be presented at the following show.

  • 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.'"
