If you have ever traveled around this great country of ours, you have almost certainly learned one undeniable truth about the good ol' U.S. of A. -- we're weird.

From those who want to build a massive fence to keep out illegal aliens to those who believe in the existence of a different kind of alien, Americans are a varied and kooky bunch. Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black took a cross-country road trip to talk to Americans of all stars and stripes, the results of which gave rise to the book America, You Sexy Bitch.

Black, a liberal comedian, and McCain, daughter of Republican maverick and presidential runner-up John McCain, may seem like an odd couple at first. But on Tuesday, July 17, as they share the tales of their coast-to-coast trip with Salon.com editor-at-large Joan Walsh, they show that despite their differences, they are just Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black: Two Slices of American Pie.

Drive your Chevy to the levy, and don't forget the whiskey and rye.

Meghan McCain and Michael Ian Black go on at 7 p.m. July 17, at the Castro Theatre, 429 Castro (at Market). Admission is $7-$45.

  • 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.'"
