The Bohemian Club 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2008
Everyone should go to the opera from time to time. We recommend dressing in strange vintage gear when you go, to give your evening sort of a "Natural Born Killers meets Edward Gorey cartoons" feel. See if you can find one of those creepy furs with the animal's head still attached -- the kind that have a clever little clip in the mouth, so when you fasten the thing about your milky white bosom the rodent appears to be biting itself. That would be perfect. Whatever you wear, Giacomo Puccini's 1896 four-act La Bohème -- sung the only way, in Italian with English supertitles -- is your ideal destination. The company presenting it, the San Francisco Lyric Opera, is robust and professional; its productions often feature milky white (also cocoa, caramel, golden apricot, etc.) bosoms, heaving bosoms, bosoms doomed to be stabbed, and many other types of bosom. Better make sure yours looks nice, rat or no rat.

  • 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.'"
