Insider's Take on Things 

Wednesday, Jan 5 2011
Yes yes yes, Zach Galifianakis has just been added to the Sketchfest lineup. And indeed, tonight's options also include the It's Garry Shandling's Show tribute as well as the RiffTrax show. We swing local, as usual, though: Iron Comic with Nato Green makes us proud. The concept is just how it sounds: Matt Braunger, Emily Heller, Sean Keane, Conor Kellicut, Brendan Lynch, and others make shit up on the spot. We're especially excited about Heller, whose brand of observational stand-up has been killing us all over the city lately. Uh, let's see, how do we make her sound good to you tourists? "She's hot!" "She's got buzz!" "She's among the Top Five!" And here's how we scare you off: "She's a feminist!" Host Green was our Best Comic of 2010, and he just keeps getting smarter and faster; we've seen him flay, gut, smoke, and eat hecklers in his relaxed, very Bay-Area way, no need to break a sweat.

  • 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.
