ODC/Dance: Summer Sampler 

When: July 31-Aug. 2, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $30-$150
Spectacularly athletic ODC danced to the mesmerizing vibrations of Zoë Keating’s magnificent cello in Brenda Way and KT Nelson’s Boulders and Bones earlier this year at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. Its annual Summer Sampler, occurring on its considerably more intimate home stage at the ODC Theater, features Breathing Underwater, the 2012 collaboration between Way and Keating. This year’s Sampler is a cozy affair for a cause, with all proceeds from opening night benefiting the treatment of Keating’s husband, who was diagnosed recently with metastatic cancer. Magik*Magik Orchestra’s Erin Wang will also play live for one night only in Way’s 2012 piece on human survival, Lifesaving Maneuvers. The program continues Aug. 1-2 with Nelson’s 2007 Scramble, set to Yo-Yo Ma’s recording of the Bach Cello Suite. From the baroque to the contemporary, from electronic amplification to analog acoustic, the cello and its particularly human qualities unite to come to human aid.

  • 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.'"
