Josh Is a Verb

Josh Kornbluth and Sarah Vowell are not the same person, as so many people are not the same person (Michael and Janet Jackson, for example). They do explore similar topics: American history, civic duty, and the sometimes-beautiful experience that is family. But despite their similarities, Kornbluth is first and foremost a monologist, and has developed a book and two films from his original works. He also hosted the egregiously canceled The Josh Kornbluth Show on KQED (2005-2007), on which he interviewed artists of many stripes, including Annie Leibovitz and Marga Gomez. Kornbluth will debut his new one-man show, Andy Warhol: Good for the Jews?, a work inspired by the exhibition "Warhol’s Jews: Ten Portraits Reconsidered." He ruminates on the subjects of Warhol’s work for this series, which include Gertrude Stein, Sigmund Freud, and Albert Einstein. Following each show, Kornbluth interviews an expert on one of the subjects and conducts a conversation with the audience.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
