Some WHERE, Over the Tone-Deaf 

Wednesday, Mar 23 2011
In a democracy, everyone gets to do whatever they want. And as the what-did-we-do-before-it success of karaoke teaches us, what everyone wants to do is sing. The Artificial Idol television show teaches us this same lesson. More than bars or small screens, though, the place people really want to sing is in movie theaters at the same time as actors. Thus the popularity of sing-along versions of musical films around here, most of them hosted by Laurie Bushman and some combination of charming gents. For the screening of the Sing-Along Wizard of Oz, the genre's urtext in some ways, the gents are Joe Wicht and David Hawkins. No earplugs are in the goody bags, not even for "Over the Rainbow," so you're warned, democrat.
March 25-31, 7 p.m.; Wednesdays, Saturdays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 25. Continues through March 31, 2011

  • 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.'"
