Goth Meets Noir Meets End Times 

Wednesday, Dec 28 2011
It's straight out of a movie scene — where a great song comes on and all the actors know the same choreographed dance. At tonight's event, not only can you learn dance moves a little beforehand to make you look good for that special someone you’re eyeing from across the room, but you get to celebrate at a New Year’s Eve party that has one of the most unusual themes we’ve seen. This year, Swing Goth, an organization that’s dedicated to partner dancing to modern music, presents Gaiman vs. Moore: Fanageddon. Partygoers are encouraged to come dressed in the themes of comic-book authors Alan Moore or Neil Gaiman — whomever they think is better. (Moore produced Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, while Gaiman's works include The Sandman, Coraline, Stardust and American Gods.) Preceding the party, a quick dance lesson is provided, teaching moves including swing and waltz so you can practice on the dance floor. We have it on good authority that there might be a last-minute booking of Unextraordinary Gentlemen, although some details remain in limbo.

  • 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.'"
