Turner Around 

Wednesday, Apr 22 2009
The talented Ross Turner makes an appearance at yet another comedy event in laugh-lovin’ San Francisco at "Comedy Returns to El Rio." Since he has frequently trodden the joke boards around the Bay Area (14 times at Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Club in Sunnyvale alone!), it seems only natural to bring his brand of absurd and observational humor to the Mission. Though seasoned in the comedy club arts, he has such range that he also appears on QVC's Craftsman Workshop program, filling the armchair shopper’s bag with drills and routers. He’s in demand on the corporate circuit as well: If we’re to believe what we see on YouTube (cats and dogs CAN go scuba diving together!), Turner killed it at his last Comcast appearance, conjuring the company’s marketing department as they came up with the “Comcastic” slogan. He’s a man clearly devoted to his craft and all manner of audiences: If he can get a bunch of bleary-eyed conventioneers laughing, a bar full of tipsy boozers and enthusiastic teetotalers should be no problem. Yayne Abeba, Nick Leonard, Candy Churilla, Debbie Campo, and Lisa Geduldig also perform.

  • 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.'"
