The Bohemian Club 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2008
Everyone should go to the opera from time to time. We recommend dressing in strange vintage gear when you go, to give your evening sort of a "Natural Born Killers meets Edward Gorey cartoons" feel. See if you can find one of those creepy furs with the animal's head still attached -- the kind that have a clever little clip in the mouth, so when you fasten the thing about your milky white bosom the rodent appears to be biting itself. That would be perfect. Whatever you wear, Giacomo Puccini's 1896 four-act La Bohème -- sung the only way, in Italian with English supertitles -- is your ideal destination. The company presenting it, the San Francisco Lyric Opera, is robust and professional; its productions often feature milky white (also cocoa, caramel, golden apricot, etc.) bosoms, heaving bosoms, bosoms doomed to be stabbed, and many other types of bosom. Better make sure yours looks nice, rat or no rat.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
