The Intimate Barrage 

Wednesday, Jan 8 2014

Poets Todd and Cybele Zufolo Siegel host Word Performances, a heavy-hitting lineup of literary talent that got its start at Viracocha and features a little bit of everything: comedians Nato Green and Zahra Noorbakhsh; bestselling journalist Sylvie Simmons (I'm Your Man); performance poet Tim Toaster Henderson; novelist Zarina Zabrisky (We, Monsters); short story writer and frequent contributor to NPR's Snap Judgment Doug Cordell; and more. Any one of those artists can knock you out with a mind-bending performance on a given night, but with their powers combined you're guaranteed to be overwhelmed. Add a musical set by folk and jazz chanteuse Miss Erma Kyriakos and cellist Andres Ver, a dance cameo by the hostess, and the intimate confines of The Lost Church, and this is sure to be a special evening.

  • 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.'"
