In case you haven't had enough of Charlie Sheen, the famously erratic actor has announced he will stop in San Francisco on April 30 with his new show My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option.

Sheen, who was recently fired from the series Two and a Half Men, has been vague about what ticket-holders might get out of the show.

But the capricious and whimsical actor has assured reporters there will be lots of scripted material, videos, and "dark moments" that won't disappoint.

The show -- which launches April 2 in Detroit --  reportedly sold out within 20 minutes in the Motor City as well as in Chicago. Sheen has since decided to expand the tour to other cities, including San Francisco and possibly stops in Europe.

Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.

  • 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.'"
