Smack Dab Is the Place to Live Out Your Ukulele Dreams

Fleigh - SMACK DAB
  • Smack Dab
  • Fleigh

Buried deep down in the very core of most people's hearts is the passion to perform. Doesn't everyone secretly want to dress in 1960s get-up, strap on a ukulele, and do Tiny Tim covers? No? Maybe that's just us. The hard part (besides mustering up the courage to show the world our undeniable talent) is finding a comfortable, acceptable, and supportive audience. That's were Smack Dab enters the picture.

Co-producers Kirk Read and Larry-Bob Roberts are the two cool cats who bring us a monthly open mic that's everything we just described and more. Regardless of your orientation, age, or gender, everyone gets their five minutes of fame. Along with the performers signing up beforehand is a featured artist who changes monthly. This month's featured artist is Fleigh, a ukulele duo composed of Flynn DeMarco and Leigh Crowe.

Smack Dab starts at 8 p.m. every third Wednesday at Magnet. Sign-up begins at 7:30 p.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.'"
