Mission Piece 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009
The literary showcase and open mike LUNADA takes a new tack this month, with three writer-performers presenting short theater pieces. As the former program director for Bay Area darling Youth Speaks, Paul Flores has produced the work of local youth. He has also toured extensively with his own projects, including the hip-hop theater piece Representa!, directed by Danny Hoch. His first novel, Along the Border Lies, earned him the PEN Oakland-Josephine Miles National Literary Award in 2003. This evening, he performs You’re Gonna Cry, a multiperspective look at violence and gentrification in the Mission District. How will one man speak for a yuppie, a gangster, and a little girl with the same breath? Flore appears with xago, who presents a piece about branding, Juárez Going On?, and Sarita Ocón, who tackles Latina images in culture with Compromise.
Tue., Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m.; Thu., Dec. 31, 7:30 p.m., 2009

  • 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.'"
