We Knew She Couldn't Stay Away Forever 

Wednesday, Dec 15 2010
We had her and we lost her. Hilarious dirty shorty Ali Wong was a Bay Area gal for some time (which is to say, her whole life up until last year), and you could find her at any old comedy venue making people laugh and lose it with her freaky frank talk about love, sex, and other humiliating rites of human existence. She shipped east to the Big Apple last year, and there's been a hole in our already-cheesecloth heart ever since. But dry your tears, she'sback! And headlining! Tonight'sshow is one of two showcasing Wong's stand-up talents. And look up the girl'svideos. The "American Apparel" video she made with local jokester Chris Garcia is still funny after all these years. Ali Wong has been labeled ne to watch over and over again, so we're watching, and excited to see what comes next.

  • 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.
