Merry Bitchmas

Well-respected, notoriously scathing drag "Grinch" Jackie Beat is appearing for one night only in SF to throw some shade in the direction of your most treasured holiday-related belief systems. The performer, who's been awarded countless drag-related and theatrical honors and once toured with Roseanne Barr, describes herself as the bastard child of Weird Al Yankovic and Bette Midler. In her one-night, one-woman show, O Holy Hell!, she'll be taking the holidays to task, with satirical carol parodies and all-new comedy material. Beat's been doing original shows every holiday season since 1998, when her takedown was featured in a Catholic League's Report on Anti-Catholicism, which has got to be a pretty high mark for a satirical holiday show. If you're only going to see one drag show this holiday season, and you'd like for it to be this drag show, get your tickets early as she'll probably sell it out.

  • 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.'"
