Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better 

Wednesday, Jul 28 2010
If you felt a little tattered and torn by the World Cup ruckuses, but you still want some mano-a-mano in the realm of musical stage art, get ready to take sides: Local drag mavens Trauma Flintstone and Katya Smirnoff-Skyy bring you the best in local cabaret fighting it out. In a yearlong series of cabaret competitions, the duo has sussed out Best Modern Cabaret, Best Showtunes, Best Female and Male Crooners, Best International, and Best Vaudeville. Tonight’s Cabaret Showcase Showdown pits all the individual category winners against one another to find the Ultimate Cabaret Performer. In a greasy pit of talent like San Francisco, you know the competition is fierce. The winner gets a solo showcase at the dear martini hut at the end of Valencia. No one has accused Trauma or Katya of being subtle, and though vuvuzelas may not ring through the Mission after the end of the show, the experience will be a blast.

  • 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.'"
