Tricky Trivia 

Wednesday, Jan 22 2014

NPR's comedy quiz show Ask Me Another is usually recorded live in Brooklyn, but a recent podcast announced a visit to the city by the bay. It also featured an hour's worth of trivia, with games that mashed up the names of literary works and comic strips (sample answer: Garfield of Dreams), and a visit from Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert. She was asked to play a game with the same title as her famous book. Host Ophira Eisenberg gave a word that was either a deity, a food, or a person, and Gilbert would guess which, answering back with "eat," "pray," or "love." It may sound easy, but it wasn't. The crew at Ask Me Another knows how to stump even ardent trivia fanatics — two of the show's contestants were trivia team captains. If any of San Francisco's trivia captains want to try their mind on Ask Me Another, this could be their chance; the podcast put a call out for Bay Area contestants. Potential candidates should e-mail and include "SF" in their subject line.

  • 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.'"
