Just Make It Up as You Go Along 

Wednesday, Aug 11 2010
Performing improvisational theater and comedy are popular all over the country — because saying the first thing that comes into your head is fun. If you are talented, it’s also funny. To be talented, you need inspiration. Tim Meadows performs in two shows Aug. 14. Do the math: You know Meadows from his nine-year stint on SNL, among other things; our money is on him improv-ing rings around anyone else onstage. Inspiring! Many other good shows are planned at the San Francisco Improv Festival, as well. On Aug. 13, for example, fest organizers Crisis Hopkins join Los Angeles group Slave Leia. Kim “Howard” Johnson’s show looks amazing as well; he was John Cleese’s assistant, tells tales from the set of Life of Brian, and plans to share pictures. Have fun, but don’t say the first thing that comes into your head when you see them.

  • 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.'"
