Mary Go-Round 

Wednesday, Sep 2 2009
Mary Van Note comes from the awkward-silence school of humor, meaning she’s the kind of comedian who gets labeled "Andy Kaufman-esque." She also makes wince-inducing sexual references, dresses like a perverted schoolmarm, and doesn't wear makeup — she's kind of like a cross between pinup girl Bettie Page and the Charlyne Yi, the writer and star of current indie hit film Paper Hearts. See Van Note's Independent Film Channel Web series "Gavin Really Wants Me" for proof; it boings quickly back and forth between dorky and dirty. At these two iterations of “The Mary Van Note Show," she's joined onstage by local comedy scenesters: tonight, Caitlin Gill, Emily Heller, and Ray Molina; and next week, DJ Real, Chris Burns, and Kellen Erskine.

  • 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.'"
