Adam Mansbach's novel Angry Black White Boy must have pissed off a lot of people at first. It features a protagonist who not only hates himself for being white instead of black, but who also hates other white people even more. That's some damn tricky material! Yet the book has been incredibly popular and well-reviewed. If it sounds difficult to read about, say, a National Day of Apology, imagine how much more difficult it would be to see it enacted live onstage — but local theater company Campo Santo has teamed up with the Hybrid Project to do just that with Angry Black White Boy. Directed by Sean San José and produced by a truly stellar team of choreographers, musicians, and writers, the show takes on the problems within problems of race in the U.S. By some miracle, it's also funny.
Thursdays-Sundays, 8 p.m.; Jan. 29-Feb. 15. Starts: Oct. 23. Continues through Dec. 7, 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.'"
