Is It Hot Out Here? 

Wednesday, Sep 26 2007
Although the Comedy Day Web site never fails to worry us, with its animated clip art, banana-peel logo, and side-splitting tagline ("Comedy Day. Comedy Everyday." Hah!), the annual event is a safe bet. More than 500 comics have performed to more than 500,000 attendees since 1981, and the alumni list is rife with headliners: Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Robin Williams, Margaret Cho, and Janeane Garofalo have all sweated in the sun, trying to humor the locals. Expect a good dose of "Look! I'm a comic and I'm outside!" jokes, and probably some about Frisbee and dogs. But they're selling beer and wine, so it won't be a totally alien scene. Today's lineup leans on local talent, including Will Franken, Marga Gomez, Will and Debi Durst, Tom Ammiano, Doug Ferrari, Brian Copeland, Aundré the Wonderwoman, and many more. Music by the Stupeds kicks things off.

  • 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.'"
