Cache of 'Staches 

Wednesday, Nov 2 2011
No longer are creatively shaped mustaches and facial hair limited to hipsters, barbershop singers, and bears — clowns want in too. Circus artists converge to show you how in The Picklewater Clown Cabaret of Fine Mustaches. These attractively groomed clowns and acrobats celebrate the joys and sorrow of facial hair through performances with names such as Van Dykes, Mustache Rides, and Palmade. The Picklewater company is joined by fellow clown gang Pi the Physical Comedy Troupe, whose comedians “don’t tell jokes, they are jokes.” Also on Picklewater’s dance card are clowning duo Jamie Coventry and Natasha Kaluza (Coventry is said to “pull a whole world from a garbage can”), as well as acrobatic twosome Jeremy Vik and Zoe Klein. Abraham Dover (whose alter egos include Knotty Klown) adds performance prowess, while Aji Slater brings kinetic comedy, and Donny Divanian does stand-up. And ladies, don’t feel left out regarding the facial hair — there’s always that mustache photo feature on the ScoutMob app.

  • 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.'"
