The Rocks-y Theater 

Wednesday, Sep 24 2008
California runs into her two ex-boyfriends, the San Andreas and Hayward faults. There's tension, and then they double-team her: This is one of many geological sex puns in Tenaya Rocks, a cabaret starring Tenaya Hurst and a couple of boys. Rocks (hard), volcanoes (exploding), subduction (one goes down); many elements of geology get the dirty-song-and-slutty-dance treatment. Hurst stalks the stage (which is bare but for a bed) wearing fishnets and black silk tap panties, so when she winds up for the big joke about tectonic plate boundary movement, you know where she's going. "The first kind is convergent: Coming together." Tee hee!
Thursdays-Saturdays, 10:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 2. Continues through Nov. 15, 2008

  • 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.'"
