Hit Me 

Wednesday, Jul 14 2010
We’re getting a damn good dose of sharp humor and political intelligence dressed in a fake news show these days, and if we’re lucky, it’ll continue indefinitely, like The Simpsons. If you’d like a little more drag in your brainy laughs, perhaps more four-part harmonies and sorbet-colored frocks, the Kinsey Sicks are your dream come true. Four gals — fully developed characters with backstories to boot — engage in scenarios and exchanges that invariably lead to song at the latest stage show, Each Hit and I. It can sound reductive to label gay acts “campy,” but the Kinsey Sicks merit the adjective in its best, cheeky form. Combining original songs with parodies of popular tunes, they have put on their show in myriad venues and countries, including NYC’s Studio 54 and an extended run at the Hilton in Las Vegas. The San Francisco run celebrates the release of their seventh album.

  • 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.'"
