Summer Nights 

Wednesday, Jun 9 2010
John Travolta was cool 30 years ago, though all people (and this may shock young people) are cool when they’re young. Of course, he wasn’t all that (Urban Cowboy), but he was pretty cool (Saturday Night Fever), at least cool enough for nostalgic Americans (Grease). He got leading-man parts because his chin had a gunshot dimple and his smile curled like devil’s horns; also because he could dance. Maybe you can, too. Maybe you’re going to be one of the ballsy young men — like Kenickie, make yourself Kenickie — who jumps up, flings out a hand, and swings a gal or a whole row of them around Dolores Park during Film Night in the Park. The Rydell High classic is playing, but it’s not just any screening: This is a Grease sing-along. Make yourself known.

  • 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.'"
