A Case for Thursday

Comedy Returns to El Rio! takes place on the third Thursday of the month on an intimate stage in the south Mission dive bar. Hosted by Bay Area comedy fixture Lisa Geduldig (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Funny Girlz), who began her comedy career at El Rio 24 years ago with the irreverent Jewish comedy show on Christmas at a Chinese restaurant. Past lineups have included lots of stand-up veterans with storytelling street cred, like Joe Klocek (Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, NBC's Last Comic Standing), Shanti Charan (who placed 7th in the 2011 SF International Comedy Competition), lesbian stay-at-home mom Regina Stoops, and Josh Healey, who has shared stages and picket lines with the likes of Naomi Klein and Flavor Flav.

  • 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.'"
