This is almost too great for words: to kick off the stage production's two-month San Francisco run, Mayor Gavin Newsom has proclaimed today, April 11, 2008, Point Break LIVE! Day. A stage adaptation of the almost unbearably cool 1991 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze surfer/heist flick makes its debut performance at the Xenodrome (1320 Potrero Avenue) tonight at 9:00 p.m. -- tickets are $25 a piece. Get them here, or call 1-866-811-4111. The show runs through June with three performances a week. And we can only hope that this exchange made it into the stage version:

Johnny Utah: Bodhi, this is your fucking wake-up call man. I am an F, B, I, Agent!

Bodhi: Yeah, I know man. Ain't it wild? That's what makes it so interesting. You can do what you want, and make up your own rules. Why be a servant to the law, when you can be it's master?

  • 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.'"
