Homecoming Queen 

Wednesday, Nov 20 2013

Oakland cheerleader-turned-comedienne Anjelah Johnson returns to her Bay Area homeland this weekend to perform her stand-up comedy routine at Cobb's. The 31-year-old hottie was a former MADtv cast member best-known for her impressions and character work, and fans probably remember her beloved character, King Burger cashier Bon Qui Qui, who was always gonna cut someone if their order was too complicated. Johnson's now a full-blown Comedy Central-endorsed stand-up star with a massive following. Her self-deprecating style is extra-endearing because of her good looks, and her observational humor, usually based on race and gender differences, is spot-on. And good news for her young fans: One of the shows on Sunday is open to all ages.

Nov. 29-Dec. 1, 7 & 9:30 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
