Something for You 

Wednesday, Aug 4 2010
At the San Francisco Theater Festival, please find 25 plays we've already told you about, plus 95 acts we’ve never heard of — they're all part of this big, huge, giant, one-day thespian party. Among them is a tribute to The Big Lebowski called Lebowski Over the Line and Meldy Hernandez' one-woman show, BATHALA NA!, which follows a trilingual Filipina nurse through Africa. We don't generally use the phrase "something for everyone," because it isn't true. But the S.F. Theater Festival comes close to providing something for everyone, via "cocky Asians," tons of improv comedy, Global Women Intact's Voice of Africa band, and a contribution from the ongoing world-famous local production, Beach Blanket Babylon. Everyone, of course, also includes children, who rate their own fest-within-a-fest with jugglers, clowns, and magicians.

  • 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.'"
