Gaydar Says Huh? 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
Moshe Kasher tells a funny joke about what it’s like to be gay in a park in front of a bush in San Francisco: “Just walk right up to the bush and put your penis in the bush, as there is a MAN inside of the bush,” he says. “They’re just waiting there, like a duck waiting for its foie gras feeding tube.” It’s funny, and it brings up a thought puzzle: Is it okay for a straight man to tell jokes about being gay in a park in the city? We think it is. Or, more accurately: We think it is? Our straight man, Kasher, adds to the fun by being completely gay-seeming — not fake-Bruno gay-seeming, but thin-guy-with-nice-diction gay-seeming, and he has immense amounts of fun with it, wearing his hair in a “Gitler,” or the Gay Hitler mop, while getting “Hey, Faggot”-ed from frat guys in passing cars (hold your calls, these are two of his drawn-from-real-life jokes). Tonight he celebrates the release of his first CD, Everyone You Know Is Going to Die ... and Then You Are.

  • 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.'"
