Did the season premiere of The Walking Dead leave you with a craving? Not to worry. The fine folks of San Francisco Theater Pub have your back. Over the last couple years they've done an amazing job filling the theater week's dark nights with cold pints and footlights, interpreting the works of Václav Havel, Alfred Jarry, Euripides, Sophocles, and the Bard in an atmosphere that makes all that sophistication pretty easy to swallow. And we're not just talking about the tasty victuals from their rotating pop-up kitchens.

This outfit understands the diverse needs of its audience. A program of Muni-inspired plays, poems, and songs titled "How to Ride a Bus in San Francisco" might follow an evening of Oscar Wilde; a dense, labyrinthine night of H.P. Lovecraft can lead to ADHD-style Pint-Sized Plays, where performances last no longer than a glass of beer. Tonight, they have channeled your yen for the undead into a rom-zom-com called Love in the Time of Zombies. This is a tale about four friends trapped in a cabin, surrounded by zombies -- that's where you stumble in, dripping with BBQ sauce and groaning. So bring your rotting flesh and leave your modesty at the door.

Love in the Time of Zombies starts at 8 p.m. (pop-up kitchens open at 7 p.m. with Hyde Away Blues BBQ on Mondays and HayaHon Sushi on Tuesdays) through Oct. 30 at Café Royale, 800 Post (at Leavenworth), S.F. Admission is free, but a $5 donation is appreciated.

To get you in the mood, here's a Funny or Die video involving Casablanca and ... zombies:

  • 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.'"
