MOOREDEVINE, “The Greatest Musical Duo to Grace the Greater Bay Area”, set to record album at 6/29/15 @ Milk Bar
Biased as my opinion may be, I think MOOREDEVINE is one of the best acts in San Francisco. Part of the Bang Bang Sylvan Gang, the two have amassed a spectacular track record of being hard to follow and song selection that’s easy to swallow.
Andrew Moore is a well-worn wunderkind, starting comedy outfits in his teens, brandishing his guitar-laden comedy across the Bay, infusing himself as a community leader into the culture of the defunct Dirty Trix Saloon and Milk Bar as “Mayor of Revelry”.
Spencer Devine has bull-rushed stand-up, improv, and sketch in such a passionate and unconventional way, contorting his imagination to each and daring your dissatisfaction.
Together their dynamic is at times hostile, bickering between songs, casting each other as rivals in the musical interplay. Other times, their sensibilities fuse into wily blitz, infecting the audience with earworms fed with narcotics and cadavers
Milk Bar has become the de facto home for that gritty, boozy bar show, that costs absolute nothing but presents potential for gold. MOOREDEVINE is tailor-made for the Haight-ful hall: they can get rowdier than the rowdy, and more heckly than the hecklers and so loud that you’ll either need to leave or surrender to their humor.
This is a short documentary I made on how shitty unrequited love can be. The “twist” or hook I guess, is that it’s about the unrequited love a 60-year-old woman had for my 25-year-old roommate. I started it in 2012 for a class on documentary film making. It was 11pm, & the next day I was supposed to turn something in to propose as my final project. I wandered upstairs where my roommate, Misha, played his voice mail on speaker phone, and it started with “your voice mailbox is full…” followed by messages exclusively from this older woman on the San Francisco comedy scene everyone called Sweet Gail. Those two minutes I showed in class became the 22min. short it is today.
I did a re-edit in 2013, which was terrible. Then I felt motivated again & did a couple re-edits in 2014. I knew it didn’t have polish, but I wanted to try my luck submitting it to festivals. I got the final rejection letter in March of this year, and I’ve been to lazy to upload it until now. I know the longer I wait, the less I’ll want people to see it, because I’ve come so far from what interested me in my early 20′s to now. The longer I wait, I know I’ll only feel more silly for what I made when I was younger than what I would have made today.
I know a handful of my friends, peers and acquaintances have wanted to see this for a while, and everyone who has seen it has been very kind, so here it is.
Punch Line San Francisco will be hosting the Dinosaurs of Comedy night. Sorry, this has nothing to do with Jurassic World. But seasoned San Francisco comedy veterans will be performing for your youthful ironic pleasure. These guys have appeared on such late night shows as the Late Late Show and Late Night with David Letterman, so anyone under 30 will be sure not to recognize them.
Marga Gomez is back after her East Coast tour. Lynn Ruth Miller is back from her Russian tour, an international comedy sensation at 79. Thursday Nov 29, 8pm both will throw down at Comedy Bodega / Thursdays Lynn said she might strip if we get enough people. It’s free admission but no one turned away for tipping. Thursday Nov 29th 8pm at Esta Noche 3079 16th, SF. (Take BART to 16th and Mission walk half a block.)
SF Natives Karen Kilgariff and Drennon Davis try to talk down your overly intoxicated brain in this song performed on CONAN
We’ve all been there. You get too high and you feel like the world has turned against you. If only there was an internet video to calm you down. This is where natives Drennon Davis and Karen Kilgariff come in. Impressive comedians in their own right, the duo have collaborated at a number of shows, imagining my favorite Bjork impression to date in addition to creating this PSA that is probably a bad thing to watch if you’re too high. Trademark glib and clever twists shine in this performance, which is highlighted by, imo, this sassy hand-to-hip movement that Drennon makes, just as the bit raises the stakes.

Most people head to Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco for the killer list of rock bands, rappers, and chanteuses. The lineup for this year is pretty stacked, so obviously that’s reason enough to head to the festival, however, Outside Lands always does a pretty good job of presenting a well-rounded experience every year.
