Hopelessly Devoted 

Wednesday, May 5 2010
Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman are getting a sitter, for in a surprising and heartening move they appear together tonight. It should make for an interesting dynamic: We know Waldman’s fans will be eyeing Chabon, going mmmm-hmmm, because of some of what she’s written. (We mean about the sex with Chabon.) His fans, on the other hand, could be screaming about Star Trek, or Jewish law, or genre fiction — to be frank, he's been all over the place, thematically. Today, both are armed with books on issues relating to and resulting from procreating several times over. Hers is called Bad Mother. His is called Manhood for Amateurs. Don’t worry; they’re good parents, despite the titles. This is them being witty — they’re writers.

  • 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.'"
