Open Wide Mike 

Wednesday, Oct 29 2008
All 12 acts on the bill at the K’vetsh 12-Year Anniversary Show are great: Sister Spit superstar and author Sara Seinberg is kind of a big deal, for example. And the lineup at the queer-friendly open mike and multi-genre reading/screening series goes on and on: John Waters torch-bearer Devon Devine and his pal Jenna Riot introduce us to BrownDownCrownTV, a new homemade TV show. Naturally, your hosts, Tara Jepsen and Kirk Read, have their own rabid fans as well. (Full disclosure: You’ll find Jepsen in these pages as one of our contributors. We keep her in the stable with all the others.). Lo these many years, the duo remains easy on the eyes and challenging to the brain — yet they will not say anything mean about you, even if you make an ass out of yourself in the open mike portion of the evening (ask us how we know). However, we’re most excited about the inclusion of local filmmaker Veronica Majano, a history-mad political film archivist and manipulator. She shows clips of Mission Street circa the 1960s and ’70s, focusing on people’s awesome hair and lowriders but ultimately communicating a subtle sense of cultural loss and emphasizing the glory of knowing the history of your space.

  • 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.'"
