Night Moves 

Wednesday, Sep 25 2013

Most famous for his Comedy Central TV show Insomniac, veteran bald comic Dave Attell is making a San Francisco appearance this week at Cobb's Comedy Club. Known for his dark observations, self-deprecation, and confrontational comedy, Attell has been going strong in the standup biz since the late '80s. If you never watched Insomniac, the visionary travel show that featured the New York-based comedian visiting after-hours spots in cities across the U.S., you might recognize Attell instead from some of his stand-up appearances on the late-night talk show circuit, his stint on the early seasons of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, or from playing himself in the first installment of Arrested Development. Attell isn't afraid to get real, or to get blue, and his style is both curmudgeonly and somewhat frantic, like he's always kind of looking over his shoulder. He keeps it lively, so don't be surprised if you run into him after hours on the streets of S.F.

  • 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.'"
