Love Comes To Town 

Wednesday, May 15 2013
Thank goodness Loni Love quit her electrical engineering job to pursue a career in comedy. Electrical engineering is cool, sure; I mean, circuits? And there’s money and probably some stability in it, but when your friend’s dad tells jokes about, say, how he’s thinking about getting one of those earrings that connects by a chain to a nose ring, you won’t laugh, except maybe nervously or politely, and that’s because he’s a professional electrical engineer, not a professional comic. Love is naturally funny, and she’s had a lot of practice since she began her destined career. You probably saw her joking it up on Chelsea Lately before, where she’s a regular, or you might’ve seen her performing on The Tonight Show; she’s great at that observational stuff people are so into on late night television. Both Comedy Central and Variety called her one of the Top 10 Comics to Watch in 2009. And this week she’ll be in San Francisco performing for crowds at Cobb’s. Check it out and seriously get your laugh on (new acronym: GYLO).

  • 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.'"
