Big Mouth Strikes Again 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010
To hear Mimi Vilmenay tell it, she doesn’t have any fans. “Everyone freaks out at everything I say. I’m upsetting everyone around me constantly,” she says. A case in point might be how she answered her young daughter’s question about the facts of life: “What’s an abortion? It’s why you have one sister and not five.” Okay, that’s pretty shocking. But as for the “no fans” part, we don’t believe it. Vilmenay comes across as so matter-of-fact, so approachable, so not-a-hardass, it’s like someone else is the foul-mouthed, in-your-face cretin and she’s just relaying their messages. And she’s not immune from her own fury. She put a handlebar mustache on her 4-year-old to pose as a hipster she was dating. “You look like a fat Katy Perry,” the faux-hipster said. “I like you but I don’t. You’ve got to move on.” And moving on, she is. Vilmenay has been doing open-mic nights at the likes of the Brainwash and the Stud, but now she’s hooked up with Jabari Davis & Associates and is on a bill with four other comics. We hope it’s the start of something big.

  • 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.'"
