If you didn't know, Peter Sellers was a comedic genius. His multiple funny roles in Dr. Strangelove was a precursor to further versatile actors like the Monty Python troupe and Eddie Murphy, and was outright snubbed of winning another Oscar with his amazing performance in Being There. The Castro Theatre won't be playing these classics, but the flicks Sellers did with director Blake Edwards weren't so bad, either. Visit the Castro Theatre April 18 for a Peter Sellers double feature of A Shot in the Dark, where Sellers takes on his immortal Inspector Clouseau character of Pink Panther Fame, and The Party, where he plays a bumbling Indian actor who ruins a swank Hollywood party. -- ASD Staff Report

  • 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.'"
