Kidman Forever 

Wednesday, Dec 4 2013

There are Marilyns, and there are Judys, and there are Audreys, and there are Bettes, and there are Tildas, but for some, there is only she of the button nose and immobile forehead, she of varying degrees of strawberry and blonde, she of the frigid, lanky untouchability who famously wore chartreuse shantung by John Galliano in 1997 and left a nuptial union with Thomas Cruise Mapother IV in 2001. Dancers Mica Sigourney, John Foster Cartwright, and Maryam Rostami make no promises in Nicole Kidman Is Fucking Gorgeous. They do not promise to swoop in on a rhinestone-studded swing or paste on a Virginia Woolf nose. They do not promise to have clairvoyant, photosensitive children or sell you Chanel No. 5. Their Australian accents may be absent or appalling. But homage will be paid to the silver screen's ice queen.

  • 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.'"
