Talk about a vacation gone wrong. When Bryan and Kym, the pair at the center of Wishful Sinking, board a cruise ship to celebrate their honeymoon, they discover a litany of problems. First, the Seaward Wanderer is not exactly seaworthy. Then it turns out that Bryan's ex-fiancee is the ship's star entertainer. This fiancee mysteriously vanished from Bryan's life years ago, and now his feelings are rocking back and forth between the two women. And then, as if things weren't bad enough, the captain decides to become what he's always really wanted to be: a pirate. Wishful Sinking is the annual production of The Mask and Wig Club at the University of Pennsylvania. Don't mistake it for just any school group; Mask and Wig is the oldest all-male collegiate comedy troupe in the country. Former members have gone on to write several well-known radio plays, and even that famous Route 66 song. Its tour only docks in San Francisco for one night.

  • 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.'"
