Thank You Sir! May I Have Another?

Stand-up comedian Scott Capurro is not very nice. He's indiscriminately mean to everyone -- if you don't like a man onstage mocking you and your kind, skip it. Capurro's awfully smart, though, and funny. A surprising egalitarianism causes him to contradict himself from time to time: Although he doesn't hesitate to make racist jokes, he also points out, for example, that "So much rap is violent misogyny cradling homophobia. But then so is everyone's favorite musical, Oklahoma." Reviewers aren't very nice to him, in return -- in print, he's been called everything from "Wicked Witch of the West Coast" to "little bitch." At "Scott Capurro's Dirty Gift," he shows off his filthy mouth and sparkling wit.

  • 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.'"
