Possibly Too Good To Be True: Helicopter Ballet

Posted By on Fri, Jun 8, 2007 at 4:05 PM

It’s a shill. It’s stunty and gimmicky and we should not fall for this kind of crap. But OMFG! It’s a Twilight Helicopter Air Show! PR sez: “aerial stunts including loops, rolls and flying upside down.” And Otto the Clown helicopter plays with a yo-yo? And the Showcopters do ballet to “Flight of the Valkyries?” No way dude! Someone go and report back to us because we can’t go, meaning we’re dumb and stupid, because what could be more important than choreographed helicopters? There’s beer too. It’s at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos at 6 p.m. on June 15 and it costs sixty bucks. (Watch out, the site is PDF-happy.)

  • 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.'"
