DANCE/PERFORMANCE

Keith Hennessy: Saliva: The Making of and Saliva

Saliva is probably Keith Hennessy's best known and least seen work of the last 20 years. When it premiered on a cold December night in 1988 under a San Francisco freeway overpass — and when it was performed again in March 1989 — it had not been advertised, word got around in the underground arts community.

MUSIC
Baroness
Baroness became one of the most promising bands in heavy music with the release of 2007's The Red Album (Relapse), generating high expectations for its new monochromatic opus, The Blue Album (Relapse), released this fall. Driven by the squalling vocals and versatile technique of guitarist John Baizley (who also has made a name for himself as a visual artist) the band has exceeded the high hopes of their fans with an offering that combines muscular riffing, allusive Southern flair, and affecting dynamics.

MUSIC

Sex Worker

In the current folds of neo-psychedelia, kids don't require drugs to lose their shit. They need only close their eyes and wait for the neon to swirl, the monologues to multiply. Sex Worker, the solo effort of Daniel Martin-McCormick of Mi Ami, is one such manifestation of this hide-and-seek schizo entanglement, where fits of stretched, ethereal sound get densely layered with Martin-McCormick's fractured vocal tantrums. Actually, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm basing this on two MySpace songs. The truth is, you're still in town. Read more »

THEATER

The Walworth Farce

Ever since his 1996 teen psychopath romance, Disco Pigs, Edna Walsh has been delivering unnerving plays of unusual verve, full of whimsy and deep dysfunction, crazy Gaelic cadences, the wit and high lyricism of the low of brow. We don't see enough of it over here, which is all the more reason to catch Druid Ireland theater company's production of Walsh's The Walworth Farce, courtesy of Cal Performances. Read more »

MUSIC

Supersuckers

Ripping up stages on the road for more than 20 years now, the Supersuckers continue to bring their high-octane blend of unadulterated rock 'n' roll to fans around the globe. Starting out in Tucson, Eddie Spaghetti and co. made their way to the Pacific Northwest in 1989, and thrived in the burgeoning Seattle scene, but never quite sounded like their local contemporaries.
