Driven to Insanity 

Wednesday, Oct 27 2010
Muni is the municipal equivalent of Lindsay Lohan. Everything appears to be going fine: The door closes, the bus moves away from the curb, your headphones go on, then bam: Someone opens a can of tuna, someone goes after toe jam, someone tries to read your book with you, someone poofs a triple-thunder bottom bomb, a crafty schoolroom creeper, or a nebulous after-dinner mint. Weirdness arrives, from all its unexpected and redolent directions. The details appear almost immediately online, via Muni Diaries and its excellent Twitter feed, our own TMZ for the public transportation set. Tonight, the site moves to the stage with its fourth storytelling night, Muni Diaries Live! The Halloween-show lineup is scary-good, featuring the Rumpus jack-of-all-trades Isaac Fitzgerald, Fray Magazine's Derek Powazek, writer Andrew Lam, and comedian Bucky Sinister — who has probably suffered through more hours on the bus than all of them.

  • 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.'"
