We Go Together 

Wednesday, Jan 5 2011
Guess what? Comedy, as in the comedy world, lags somewhat behind the rest of the world in terms of certain kinds of intelligence. "But what about Eddie Izzard?" you're wondering. "Or Margaret Cho or Janeane Garofalo or Dave Chappelle?" Well, here's what: In spite of those successful people, up-and-coming comedians still have a disproportionately hard time if they're not straight white dudes who skew Repub. To us, it all means we're being denied access to funny jokes. Not cool! At Fags and Hags, Nico Santos leads a gang that doesn't meet the above description: Chris Burns, Mary Van Note, Guy Branum, Jonny McGovern, and Loren Kraut. None are straight men, all are smart, fast, and hilarious.

  • 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.'"
