Handy Dandy

The modern circus 7 Fingers is one of those rare multidisciplinary shows in which the individual parts actually cohere, creating a visually rich evening of entertainment, wonder, and a bit of intellectualism. Created by the Canadian troupe Les 7 Doigts…

Cirque Do Somethin'

Kinsey Sicks: Oy Vey in a Manger

The Kinsey Sicks' first holiday show joins the campy ranks of The Hard Nut, Christmas With the Crawfords, and A Karen Carpenter Christmas, and it's a brilliant, raunchy gem. (For those virgins out there, the Kinsey Sicks, "America's Favorite Dragapella…

Toy Story

Wandering through Valencia Street's Good Vibrations, we're feeling a bit ... uninspired. Ten-inch Cyberskin Vulva Fleshlight? Seen it. Lavender Jelly Rubber Twist Vibe With Arrow Probe? Own it. Dual-functional Latex Cock Ring Slash Devil-Hair Whip? Yawn. When did we become…

  • 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.'"
