A Veritable Cornucopia of Thanksgiving Ribaldry in SF

My Thanksgiving was super boring. I watched USC vs. Arizona St. and ate pie. Such is not the case for Cornucopia, where people pull knives on each other and smoke pot -- possibly at the same time -- on the day we engorge delicious turkey and whatnot. PR's got something to say:

CORNUCOPIA

Ah Thanksgiving, a time of murder, adultery, deception, racism, sexism, nepotism, egotism and pot smoke-ism. Sound familiar? We thought so. And hey, even if your relatives employ none of the above during family dinners, you’ll certainly be entertained by a family that does. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll drink a beer, and surrender yourself to a comedy of manners with rapid fire dialogue that will leave you wondering how you went so long without it. And in case you didn’t know, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the San Francisco Food Bank.

  • 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.'"
