Give a Hoot 

Wednesday, Jan 16 2008
Do not be dissuaded by the line around the block at the Progressive Reading Series. It is not there because the joint is full, but because each attendee must fill out a mini form before entering — the fee is a direct contribution to the campaign of a progressive candidate, and there are rules about that. But don't be scared! It's easy, and once you get in, you'll remember why you like San Francisco. The crowd is attractive, intelligent, and bent on bluing all 50 states, with the honorable Stephen Elliott presiding. He'll ask you for more money in such a way you'll want to give it to him, but most of the time will be spent paying rapt attention to the high-quality literature onstage.
Third Saturday of every month, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 18. Continues through Oct. 18, 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.'"
