Girl Powder! 

Wednesday, Jun 20 2012
The “girl power” movement may have gotten lost somewhere in British pop quintet the Spice Girls’ ample cleavage in the mid-90s, but fortunately for us, the righteous spirit -- and ample cleavage -- live on in the form of three fictitious, 18th century princesses known as Her Rebel Highness. If you’ve ever asked yourself why the stylings of Jane Austen and Madonna have yet to be combined in a musical revue, then you are obviously a San Franciscan. This soulful, spry performance mashes classical and contemporary songs, dancing, and theatrics with an underlying theme of empowerment, and about eight feet of powdered wig. In addition, the event promises to be pleasing not just to the ear, but to the taste buds as well. Audience members will receive the royal treatment with complimentary, hand-crafted hors d’oeuvres by Mrs. Dalloways Catering -- including Stilton and walnut tartlets and potted shrimp -- as well as “princess-inspired” desserts. Whatever your normal station in life, once you step inside the SOMA nightclub-cum-aristocratic palace ballroom, you’ll be regally transformed, and without the cumbersome frog-kissing that often accompanies such metamorphoses. It’s bound to be a riot, grrl.
Sundays, 5 p.m. Starts: June 24. Continues through Aug. 12, 2012

  • 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.'"
