Anger Management 

Wednesday, Nov 2 2011

Maybe it’s a California problem to think there aren’t enough angry people around (perhaps with the refreshing exception of protesters — but look what that took). It seems like the world’s heaviest blanket of yoga and self-loathing weighs on the justifiable angers and discontents of the general populace when there are so many reasons to have a healthy anger about whatever your particular menu of provocations might be. If you’re done with the relentlessly posed photos of online social experience and done with, well, socializing online, get out and see the fierce, biting, angry, and heartfelt comedy of Marc Maron. He is the man of the righteous navel gaze, a comic committed to hassling the world and owning his role in the problem. Certainly in this moment in history, every sane voice carries the power to let the world feel like it has some reason to shout socked away somewhere. All the intimate probing and callous jest of Maron’s wildly popular WTF podcast, in which he interviews comics about their work and lives, is present in his stand-up work. He is supported by our fantastic and hilarious local talents Nato Green and Sammy Obeid.

  • 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.'"
