Posehn Clown Posse 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2014

Comedian Brian Posehn's nickname, "Metalfingers," was coined only just now and comes from the "metal fingers," or the sign of the horns, that he makes with his hands in press photos. He makes this gesture — a fist, with the pointer and small finger sticking straight up — to indicate his support for and enthusiasm about the metal genre of music. Posehn is one of the original Comedians of Comedy, and his droll, self-deprecating yet fearless style has been inspiring alternative comedy fans for decades now. He's also a genuine geek with refined taste in comic books, metal, and horror. You may recognize him from television if you've ever watched any sitcom: he's been appearing consistently in guest roles since Seinfeld and before. The Mr. Show and Sarah Silverman Program veteran is performing only once in San Francisco, so catch him while you can.

  • 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.'"
