The Bernhard Way 

Wednesday, Dec 26 2007
One look at Sandra Bernhard tells you just about everything you need to know about the infamous comic's signature style: caramel highlights frame a face braced for battle and her stiff upper lip curls into a half-snarl, ready to unleash a barrage of stinging barbs, sarcastic asides, and homages to Prince. Piercing brown eyes see through pretense and straight into the bittersweet core of humanity, and her fists rest on her hips in the pose of a sassy warrior queen. After dropping into town about a month ago to spend an evening with thousands of tranny-chasers as a guest judge at the Trannyshack Pageant, the comedic virtuosa and homosexual magnet returns to San Francisco to ring in the New Year at Sandra Bernhard's All New New Year's Eve Extravaganza. Outside, hundreds of hyperactive gays will claw each other's eyes out for the opportunity to see Miss Bernhard trip out on a brassy rendition of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," namedrop the adorable Anderson Cooper, and kick off the first few hours of the New Year with a tempest of witticisms.

  • 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.'"
