AA Meetings 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of the best dance companies this country has ever produced. Does that sound like an exaggeration, a typical thing you read in calendar sections of alt-weeklies' Web sites? It isn't, though; the Ailey style is contemporary, joyous, and muscular, as carried on by artistic director and superstar Judith Jamison. The rarity of this chance to see the group accompanied by roots-gospel innovators Sweet Honey in the Rock (March 3 and 4 only) is also difficult to overstate. A balm to those who miss Sweet Honey: Ailey's grand masterpiece and audience favorite, "Revelations," is presented at all seven performances.

  • 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.'"
