Tap Tap Tap 

Wednesday, Oct 28 2009
Dancers aren’t known for their smarts. Don’t shoot the messenger, it’s just a reality. Besides, who needs to be all brainy when you know how to move? The thing is, when a dancer is intelligent, society runs the risk of hosting a superbeing — we can only hope that Savion Glover continues to use his powers for good and not for evil. Gregory Hines called him “the greatest tap dancer of all time,” thus ending the need for anyone to ever comment on his talent again. He starred in Spike Lee’s Bamboozled, a movie most people can’t even comprehend enough to watch it, let alone bring it to life, as well as in the huge Broadway hit Bring in 'da Noise/ Bring in 'da Funk. Committed to education, Glover appeared on Sesame Street for years. His look is classic, his taps are light-speed, and his smile is a laser beam. Let’s just try to keep him happy and hope for the best.

  • 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.'"
