A totally biased guide to John Oliver's greatest moments: The time he used the "human microphone" at an Occupy rally to explain how stupid the human microphone looks (everyone shouts whatever the leader just said). When he suggested (after the acquittal of George Zimmerman) that the iconic image of Mickey Mouse waving from Disney World in Florida was really Mickey saying, "Please, someone get me the f— out of here." And, of course, there are the many, many ways he has called out Fox News, CNN and the Tea Party. All of this comes from watching his work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but Oliver has a lot of jokes up his sleeve. Tonight, it's stand-up comedy, but he's also had his own special on Comedy Central, and is currently writing and starring in the weekly podcast The Bugle: Audio Newspaper for a Visual World.

  • 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.'"
