Epic Beard Man's Prior Conquests

Posted By on Mon, Feb 22, 2010 at 12:01 AM

Last week it was revealed that Thomas "Epic Beard Man" Bruso, the victor in the viral video of an AC Transit brawl, had last year gained fleeting Internet fame by getting himself Tased at an Oakland A's game. Of course, with a little simple Web sleuthing, it turns out that public transit fisticuffs and serving as a ballpark conductor are just the latest episodes of Epic Beard Man's history of brutal confrontations through time:

  • 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.'"
