Getting Wet 

Wednesday, Jul 31 2013

San Francisco has been near the top of a lot of lists lately (dog-friendly, bike-friendly, wealth-friendly), but hereÕs one that slipped past our radar: world-class burlesque locales. Our very own Hubba Hubba Revue was recently named one of Òthe top 10 burlesque shows in the worldÓ by the Travel Channel. WeÕre appropriately thrilled, but not too surprised. Hubba HubbaÕs mixture of circus, striptease and good old-fashioned get down has been thrilling local audiences for years. This monthÕs incarnation features a theme of ÒUndersea Burlesque,Ó and sees the crew returning to their original venue, DNA Lounge. A return that director Jim Sweeney described as Òlong awaited,Ó and Òextra special.Ó Guest performers this time are Jessabelle Thunder and Caramel Knowledge, both from LA, and the all black-light burlesque troupe The Ultra Violets. Important note: Hubba Hubba Review is happening after another event, so the doors wonÕt open until 9:30 p.m.

Fri., Aug. 9, 9:30 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
