Mature Monsters 

Wednesday, Nov 27 2013

Don't be fooled by the cute and colorful puppets. With profanity-laced songs such as "It Sucks to Be Me" and "Everyone's a Little Bit Racist," Avenue Q is best for a night when the kids are with a babysitter. A cast of humans, puppets, and puppeteers gives us a tongue-in-cheek look at what it's like to come of age in New York City, and illustrates everything that's awful about being an adult. It's like having a couple drinks with the characters of Sesame Street and hearing what they really think about life –except that instead of Big Bird and Elmo you'll be talking with Rod the Republican and Lucy the Slut. With three Tony awards for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book, you'll be humming its songs for days. Just make sure not to sing "The Internet is for Porn" when you're in front of your children.

Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: Dec. 6. Continues through Jan. 12, 2013

  • 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.'"
