The Sound of Showtunes 

Wednesday, Nov 20 2013

How do you solve a problem like not being able to belt out your favorite show tunes? Not every sing-along is worth the time, but it's The Sound of Music, people. If there's a better way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season than by singing along to a love story/Nazi drama in a lovely old theater full of Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer fans, you're wrong, because there's not. If the Rogers and Hammerstein musical is one of your favorite things, it's showing for several nights and a couple afternoons in widescreen with subtitles, in case you forget all the words to "Edelweiss." Bring your nostalgia and dress up in your favorite habit or old-fashioned European-style children's playclothes.

Nov. 29-Dec. 1; Dec. 4-5; Dec. 7-8, 2013

  • 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.'"
