Last election, when we were all wondering what was on Obama’s fabled BlackBerry, the sketch comedy troupe Kasper Hauser was wondering how fast it could get a book out. Record time, it turns out: Obama’s BlackBerry, released this month, is a hysterical little volume of the president’s correspondence. It’s at least as funny as Wedding of the Times, a parody of The New York Times' wedding announcements, which the troupe also released this month. And both hold up well against SkyMaul: Happy Crap You Can Buy from a Plane, which totally destroyed us a few years back, with all kinds of spitting Coke on our keyboards and laugh-crying at our desks. So that makes three books, good books, in as many years. You might be thinking, what about the sketch comedy? No surprise: good. Find out how good at Kasper Hauser's Book Release Show, which features a performance, a Q&A headed by Beth Lisick, and a book signing.

  • 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.'"
