Comeback Kids 

Wednesday, Feb 12 2014

Comedy Returns to El Rio is a long-running stand-up comedy night hosted by Lisa Geduldig at one of the Mission's top patio-centric nighttime hangout spots. This week the lineup features local laugh artisans Diane Amos, Zahra Noorbakhsh, Ian Williams, and Nathan Habib. It's Thursday, aka Little Friday, so get yourself out there. Share a laugh with a stranger, and then you've got a new friend. Nothing's wrong with that. Unless you make the friend because you were both laughing at what you perceived to be a really nuanced race-related joke, and then you high-fived, but then when you went over to his or her house later to follow up on the burgeoning friendship, you realized that actually you guys each understood the joke in really different ways, and maybe you don't have that much to talk about after all. Let's be honest though, that's a pretty particular situation, and while it's still possible, it's not incredibly likely. It's more likely that you will just laugh, imbibe, and enjoy the company of your actual friends.

  • 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.'"
