'Twas a Good Night 

Wednesday, Dec 12 2012
You're in the thick of it, aren't you? The frenzy of the holidays has washed over like a tidal wave and replaced visions of sugar plums with the cold slap of gift-giving budgets, packed parking lots, and incessant top 40 holiday songs. Cynicism has turned the worried generosity of, "Do you think he'll like it?" into an obstinate, "Well, he better like it because that's what he's getting!" Delay desperate attempts to squeeze one more holiday memory from a litany of TV programs, recitals, and parties. Take a breath, settle your brain, and reward your efforts with the San Francisco Symphony's 'Twas the Night concert. This evening of special celebration is a perfect sonic escape. Pop maven and jazz vocalist Lisa Vroman joins SFS guest conductor Ragnar Bohlin, and members of the symphony's brass and chorus, for a night of festive Christmas carols and songs. The concert promises arrangements of favorites, including "Little Drummer Boy," "Do You Hear What I Hear," and "Baby It's Cold Outside." The night is topped with a fun audience sing-along. You're in holiday hell now, so make each moment count with good cheer and good music.

  • 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.'"
