We just got this press release, which sounds gayer than an ecstasy party in the Castro. We had no idea Boitano was even from Sunnyvale, which explains pretty much everything. Will anyone go to this? Please tell us why.

From the PR:

Brian Boitano will soon be dazzling audiences as he performs in his Skating Spectacular, taping in San Francisco on December 5th at AT&T Park. Brian will be joined by Barry Manilow as his musical guest, Dorothy Hamill, David Sale and many others. The new show will feature music associated with the 70's to celebrate Manilow's new CD.

music associated with the 70's to celebrate Manilow's new CD.

Since winning the Gold Medal in 1988 at the Winter Olympics in

Calgary, Brian has gained worldwide recognition for his skating shows

and for "South Park" where the song "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"

has become an "anthem" for the program.

Would you consider an interview with Brian, speaking with him about

his skating career and the upcoming show? Brian was born and raised

in San Francisco and has lived there his whole life. In a sport

where athletes tend to start strong and then fizzle out, Brian has

sustained a career doing what he loves.

  • 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.'"
