Gay for Play

Let's hear it for the queers. Shout-out to anyone who felt like an outsider growing up. Shout-out to anyone who had to sit through wild side-eye at the family dinner table. And a big shout-out to anyone who can take that sort of oppression and turn it into comic gold, as demonstrated by Left Coast Theater Company, San Francisco's paramount LGBT theater group. In its newest show, WTFamily, the troupe presents six world premiere plays about family and relationships. (And what better name for it? How many times have we caught ourselves thinking, what the fuck, family?) So while the subject matter could get heavy, each of the playwrights is able to point out the humor in just about any situation. In a world where that's no easy task, consider this a tip of the hat from us to you, Left Coast Theater Company. And to everyone who makes San Francisco a big, gay wonderland: This one's for you.

Left Coast Theater Company presents WTFamily at 8 p.m. through April 25 at the Shelton Theater, 533 Sutter St., S.F. $19-$38;

  • 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.'"
