Wednesday's Pick: Supreme Diva Mary Wilson

Posted By on Wed, Sep 22, 2010 at 8:08 AM

Mary Wilson 
8 p.m., $40-$45 

What's new in the life of Mary Wilson, the normal Supreme? Why, the traveling exhibition of her gowns. "The Story of the Supremes: From the Mary Wilson Gown Collection" isn't yet scheduled to visit the Bay Area, but we have hope -- it's at this very second as close as Seattle. The exhibit bends the mind with its thoroughly American combo of silky lavender bellbottom jumpsuits and fierce civil rights history. But tonight's show, Mary Wilson: The Supreme Diva Returns, is not about the past, however world-changingly glamorous it may have been. It's about the present, including the recent release of proof that Mary loves us: Her new DVD is Live from San Francisco ... Up Close. It's also about the classic style and fabled voice of a dreamgirl.

  • 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.'"
