You Have Not Seen It All 

Wednesday, Feb 24 2010
He's kind of the Daniel Johnston of performance art: Local entertainer Dan Carbone possesses an epic dedication to his art, which could be defined as "being super weird." Plenty of people (art school druggies, mostly) dabble in being super weird, but they don't have the stamina, the locked-jaw commitment, the self-knowledge, or the skill of Carbone. He's lauded by other estimable oddballs; George Kuchar says, among other things, that "his mind is a bridge where wisdom and infantilization cross deep waters." Critics, bless their hearts, do their best: SF Weekly's own former theater critic, Michael Scott Moore, said of one of tonight's offerings, There Be Monsters!, that it "almost made me fall out of my chair." The companion piece on the evening's roster is Up from the Ground, which concerns the South, an intense plant, and family issues.

  • 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.'"
