Spreadable Cheese and Other Truths

Storytelling is really hot right now, partly thanks to the MOTH series, which hosts its San Francisco StorySLAM once a month at the Rickshaw Stop. Whether you've got a great five-minute true story to tell — like about how you once were almost kidnapped in Brazil or how you once ate a whole thing of spreadable cheese in like, ten minutes — or whether you just want to sit back and sip a libation and listen, the MOTH showcase is where it's at. There are no notes here, no standup routines, and no fictional stories allowed. It is a competition, so stories will be judged and a prize will be awarded to the storyteller who stays within the time limit, sticks to the month's theme, and has a story that best illuminates the gentle hearts of all assembled, drunk though they may be.

  • 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.'"
