On the Lookout 

Wednesday, Mar 25 2009
Comedian Beata Bakhtiari takes after Sarah Silverman: She's going there. "I don't really have a problem with child abuse, as long as it's not your child," she says, and somehow, somehow, it's funny. (Is anyone else's brain screaming, "It's funny because it's true!" and then getting offended at itself?) She also jokes about Rwandan genocide and abortion — her mom's. Bakhtiari, Nicole Calasich, Susannah Freedman, Kelli Karsten, Emily Heller, and Emily Sims are Boner Patrol, whose new show "Slumber Party" promises, "We are good at comedy." All-women comedy troupes are rare; those who eat farts for dinner are rarer. Hide your boner.
Fridays, Saturdays, 10 p.m. Starts: April 3. Continues through April 11, 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.'"
