Shaken, Stirred, and Kicked 

Wednesday, May 23 2012
NBC recently announced that the next (and seventh) season of its marquee sitcom 30 Rock will be the series’ swan song, which will effectively set Tracy Morgan loose into an even wilder wild. For Morgan, who came to household attention as a series regular on Saturday Night Live from 1996 to 2003, stand-up comedy is his first love and place to release his unfiltered thoughts. Operating on a self-proclaimed philosophy that one must suffer for the sake of true art, Morgan can be counted on to kick political correctness in the balls regardless of whether it backfires on him, as it has in recent years with remarks that have offended the queer and disabled communities and drawn backlash. That type of comedy, while not for the easily shocked, can add up to a thrill or a disaster in a live setting, so take heed as Morgan storms the stage without a script.

  • 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.'"
