Insider's Take on Things 

Wednesday, Jan 5 2011
Yes yes yes, Zach Galifianakis has just been added to the Sketchfest lineup. And indeed, tonight's options also include the It's Garry Shandling's Show tribute as well as the RiffTrax show. We swing local, as usual, though: Iron Comic with Nato Green makes us proud. The concept is just how it sounds: Matt Braunger, Emily Heller, Sean Keane, Conor Kellicut, Brendan Lynch, and others make shit up on the spot. We're especially excited about Heller, whose brand of observational stand-up has been killing us all over the city lately. Uh, let's see, how do we make her sound good to you tourists? "She's hot!" "She's got buzz!" "She's among the Top Five!" And here's how we scare you off: "She's a feminist!" Host Green was our Best Comic of 2010, and he just keeps getting smarter and faster; we've seen him flay, gut, smoke, and eat hecklers in his relaxed, very Bay-Area way, no need to break a sweat.

  • 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.'"
