Get Out on the PlayGround 

Wednesday, May 21 2008
O Happy Dagger is maybe the best name for anything, ever: kitten, debut album, vacation home, whatever. It's a quotation from Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet, even), and usually those are forbidden, but in this case we're making an exception — we'd pretty much move to a town called O Happy Dagger. At the 12th annual Best of PlayGround Festival, it's the name of a play by Crish Barth, which is fine, too. O Happy Dagger is one of seven short plays staged for the festival, all of which have been culled from a year's worth of monthly dry runs and read-alouds. The plays here are fully produced, brand-new local work — aka one of the important perks of living in a major metropolitan area — and other 'wrights include Garret Jon Groenveld, Geetha Reddy, and Cass Brayton.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: May 8. Continues through May 25, 2008

  • 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.'"
