Woody Allen's Got Nothing on This Bunch 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
Loren Kraut is unwell. She has obsessive-compulsive disorder, poor thing. Also, her name is a racial slur, but let's not go into that. Let's focus on the fact that she's a self-deprecating yet self-respecting comedian we caught a few weeks ago at Harvey's Funny Tuesdays (the one where Marga Gomez got onstage with a Fight-8 protest sign and Castro was closed off for a No on 8 dance party.) Kraut was telling jokes about counting things, and counting them again, jokes about counting things one more time, and jokes like "Now my doctor tells me I have anorexia. Like I don't have enough on my plate!" Some of our tablemates looked uneasy — perhaps people who self-identify as "normal" don't get Kraut's brand of humor, but we sure do. At "OCD and ADD Comedy: An Exotic/Neurotic Show," she's joined by "Caucasian Asian" and co-producer Jason M. Rogers, who says Kraut is the OCD to his ADD; this doesn't seem like a good combination of personality disorders, but look how cute they are! The lineup also includes Gretchen Noel, Lindsay Blaz, Tim Taylor, and Bob Johnston.

  • 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.'"
