The Roaring Whenevers 

Wednesday, Feb 13 2008
Tango La Melodia is a Gypsy jazz band and a sharp-dressed shard of a theater company. Its new production, written and designed especially for Valentine's weekend and the tiny juke joint it calls home, is Miss Ann Peterson's Broken Heart. The theatrical concert's dramatic element has, says Tango La Melodia linchpin Brent Bishop, "a lot of love triangle." So audiences not only enjoy 1920s– and '30s–style entertainment, but also witness fourth-wall interruptions like glimpses into the dressing room and a poetic spoken translation of a song lyric, all in the service of telling poor Miss Peterson's story. Live music, fancy gowns, and a romance told in the corners of the theater make it your perfect sleek, hometown treat for the holiday.

  • 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.'"
