Oy Yay 

Wednesday, Dec 12 2012
What’s a Jew to do on December 25th? Plenty. If the Mayans are wrong, 2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, when the chosen people and their favorite goys can head to Chinatown for the yearly tradition of Jewish comedy in a Chinese restaurant. Emmy award-winning actress Judy Gold, a regular on Comedy Central, is joined by Scott Blakeman, a "nice Jewish boy from Brooklyn." Mike “Kosher Meatball” Capozolla represents the Bay Area, and the night’s progenitor, Lisa Geduldig, emcees. Proceeds go to the Jewish Family and Children’s Services and the Bay Area Women’s and Children’s Center. All ages and denominations are welcome to stuff themselves and listen to hilarious people kvetch. If strip dreidel is more your thing, then It's a Jewish Christmas is the event for you. Hosted by local penny-pinching blogger Broke-Ass Stuart, a buffet of Chinese food is on this menu as well, which you’ll find next to the Hanukkah bush flown in "the guiltiest region" in Poland known. Woody Allen, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Larry David films play in the background as you awkwardly sway with a Jewish American Princess (whom your mother will love and also deem unworthy) while DJ Matt Haze spins.

  • 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.'"
