"Unique and Zany" 

Wednesday, Jan 28 2009
For those who have seen that other famous San Francisco cabaret with big hats, but who want more of the same, the S.F. Follies brings it. More lampooning, including lampooning of hippies. Thank god someone's finally come along to poke fun at hippies. But the Follies promise to go deeper, with additional lampooning of some impressively obscure Bay Area stuff including the Golden Gate Park windmills, Dennis Richmond, FasTrak, and Winterland. The press materials hype corny showgirls in sparkly top hats, but if writers John Bisceglie and Jason Tarshis can fit in any reference at all to Wendy Tokuda, Laughing Sal, and Critical Mass, they’ll earn their keep -- maybe even an ovation.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 22. Continues through April 5, 2009

  • 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.'"
