Roaming Troubadours 

Wednesday, Mar 25 2009
Men: Wouldn’t it be great to be a Jon Stewart lookalike who wrote best-selling novels and was also a famous musician? You’re thinking ha ha, very funny: Nobody is that cool. Unfortunately, John Wesley Harding is exactly those things. Wes and Eugene’s Cabinet of Wonders brings this entertaining personage to town, along with a slew of his interesting and talented friends. Comedian Eugene Mirman is the traveling co-host of this vaudeville-inspired variety show; local guests include Daniel Handler and Chris von Sneidern, star of the backhanded compliment of a documentary, Why Isn’t Chris von Sneidern Famous? Harding plays music from his new album Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead, and the rest of them just make you feel incompetent.

  • 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.'"
