Cabaret From Mount Olympus 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010
What’s a cabaret show without Greek mythology and stop-motion animated monsters? Nothing, if you ask the people behind the Cat’s Pajamas. This month’s show is Clash of the Titans. It will include the things one might expect in a cabaret show – music, comedy, a hypnotism act. But it also will include a screening of the 1981 film classic of the same name. Among the “real time” acts are the appropriately named Titan Ups, a reggae band that promoters say “could make Mount Olympus shake” with their sound. Comic and journalist Harmon Leon is said to have hair that would make even Medusa jealous. (And I wonder whether it’s a coincidence that Leon’s publisher is Promethus Books? Liver, anyone?) The Hypno Trio Cabaret Act involves an ill-meaning duo trying to take advantage of a young woman, but apparently they get their comeuppance. San Francisco favorite Chicken John will also be on hand.

  • 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.'"
