We Knew She Couldn't Stay Away Forever 

Wednesday, Dec 15 2010
We had her and we lost her. Hilarious dirty shorty Ali Wong was a Bay Area gal for some time (which is to say, her whole life up until last year), and you could find her at any old comedy venue making people laugh and lose it with her freaky frank talk about love, sex, and other humiliating rites of human existence. She shipped east to the Big Apple last year, and there's been a hole in our already-cheesecloth heart ever since. But dry your tears, she'sback! And headlining! Tonight'sshow is one of two showcasing Wong's stand-up talents. And look up the girl'svideos. The "American Apparel" video she made with local jokester Chris Garcia is still funny after all these years. Ali Wong has been labeled ne to watch over and over again, so we're watching, and excited to see what comes next.

  • 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.'"
