In further proof that Judd Apatow's extended crew runs shit like they're the Wu-Tang of Hollywood, Disney has enlisted writer/actor Jason Segel and director Nick Stoller to helm the next Muppets movie. Segel and Stoller wrote and directed the upcoming Apatow-produced Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Segel has also appeared in a gagillion Apatow projects, including Freaks and Geeks and Knocked Up, to name a few. Here's hoping he writes hilarious dick jokes for Statler and Waldorf. -- ASD Staff Report

  • 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.'"
