Borrowing Some Cash 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2007
Johnny Cash is gone, but he left Jesse Morris and the Tenderloin Two to do his work down here. Hardcore Cash fans might scowl at Morris' Mohawk hairdo and filthy language, but they'll get marrow-deep chills to hear him sing, the Man in Black's own deep croon rolling out of his mouth. He probably makes his rent playing covers in a BART station, where commuters hurl money at a guy they must think is a ghost. He and the Two play originals in what they call a "DayQuil Blues" style at A Night of Laffs and Licks — we suggest screaming for "Satan's Teeth." The event also features comedian Moshe Kasher, Dr. Demento alum Mark Silverman (no relation to Sarah, as far as we know), and NASCAR poet laureate Bucky Sinister.

  • 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.'"
