Josh Is a Verb 

Wednesday, Dec 31 2008
Josh Kornbluth and Sarah Vowell are not the same person, as so many people are not the same person (Michael and Janet Jackson, for example). They do explore similar topics: American history, civic duty, and the sometimes-beautiful experience that is family. But despite their similarities, Kornbluth is first and foremost a monologist, and has developed a book and two films from his original works. He also hosted the egregiously canceled The Josh Kornbluth Show on KQED (2005-2007), on which he interviewed artists of many stripes, including Annie Leibovitz and Marga Gomez. Kornbluth will debut his new one-man show, Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?, a work inspired by the exhibition "Warhol’s Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered." He ruminates on the subjects of Warhol’s work for this series, which include Gertrude Stein, Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein. Following each show, Kornbluth interviews an expert on one of the subjects and conducts a conversation with the audience.

  • 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.'"
