Scowls in Bulk 

Wednesday, Mar 26 2008
In a recent issue of Hyphen magazine, Ali Wong asserts that fellow comic Bobby Lee's "lack of seriousness shows a serious dedication to kicking the shit out of the model minority myth." She's not kidding: The MADtv star says he got kicked out of high school and has been to rehab four times. Even better, he claims that "I might not be the best human being. I might be a racist and a pervert, but I know that I'm funny." At An Evening of a Thousand Scowls, the comedy lineup includes Lee as well as Tig Notaro, Al Madrigal, Jonathan Coulton, Ian Edwards, Davy Rothbart, and some TBAs. Don't worry too much about Lee, either: Margaret Cho has praised him, as have his loving cracker fans from Kentucky.

  • 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.'"
