Taking Flight 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2014

Comic Arj Barker is originally from the Bay Area, and he's probably most famous at this point for his role as confident, self-professed ladies' man Dave on Flight of the Conchords. His standup is wry and absurd and observational, yet it's not terribly personal. For instance, you probably won't hear him doing any jokes about his psoriasis. Assume that is for the best. The handsome and sometimes bandana-clad comedian is doing a weekend back here in his hometown at Cobb's. He's really a pretty big deal in Australia, and this weekend, maybe you can go and find out why.

  • 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.'"
