Lightning Never Strikes the Same Place Twice 

Dancer, filmmaker, and performance artist Catherine Galasso returns to S.F. with a dance/theater/video extravaganza about Roy Sullivan, the real-life, Guinness Book-verified lucky sonofabitch who was hit by lighting seven times. Along the way, Sullivan meets up with Hot Wire Honey, a woman made of electrical cords, as well as Ballerina Internationale and Testosterony Pony. Obviously, Galasso sees plenty of humor in the situation. She also presents her solo dance Simmer, an homage to her father, composer Michael Galasso, who wrote the score to Lightning.

  • 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.'"
