The Business Men 

Wednesday, Sep 1 2010
Four comedians anchor the weekly stand-up show The Business, and they’re all extremely smart and funny. Alex Koll has dramatic hair on his face and head, Sean Keane is bringin’ self-deprecation back, and Chris Garcia is mean and angry, yet somehow also gentle. But we bet they all hate Bucky Sinister, because Bucky is Mr. Popular. He can’t help it: Everyone just loves Bucky, right away. People love him even more after they hear his sharp-edged, literary jokes, and plus he looks like a prettier version of Walter from The Big Lebowski, which only makes everyone love him yet more. He’s not like a dick about it or anything, but it’s gotta be annoying. Good thing the show always includes a few guest comics, to keep things from getting ugly: A recent Business featured Sammy Wegent, who somehow, somehow made ex-girlfriend and therapist jokes work, without even using very much misogyny. A special musical performance by “hippie” duo Rainbow Chair concluded the evening in a hail of charmingly faux-idiotic folk songs.

  • 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.'"
