A Lot to Love 

Wednesday, Aug 1 2012
A decade ago, Loni Love was an electrical engineer working at Xerox in Detroit. But after winning the Star Search reboot in 2003, she made a radical career change. She’s now a celebrated performer who has had a full-length special on Comedy Central and enjoys a regular place in the roundtable pop culture discussions on the nightly talk show Chelsea Lately. A former correspondent for colleague D.L. Hughley’s now-defunct commentary show D.L. Hughley Breaks the News on CNN, Love still mixes a liberal dose of politics into her stand-up humor -- a wry pairing with her free discussion of topics like being plus-sized and proud. Onstage, she’s energetic, friendly, and down-to-earth even as she is bold and blunt, an irresistible combination.

  • 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.'"
