Wednesday, Mar 3 2010
Practitioners of comedy routinely remind us that our own families are growhouses for laughs — in fact, this may qualify as a universal truth. Solo performer D’Lo grew up queer in a Hindu Tamil Sri Lankan family in Southern California. His mom (and surely others) had some thoughts on D’Lo’s being transgendered, and it would appear they were a little unenlightened and a lot funny. In his solo show, Ramble-Ations, D’Lo oscillates among a varied cast of characters, all contributing to his thoughts on the vibrant contradictions, realities, and occasional disharmony of straddling disparate cultures.

    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.'"
