With Bay Area reopening plans officially on hold, we'll have to accept another weekend of virtual events. Don't despair- we have several local performances, past and present to keep you entertained. Here's what's #virtuallyBARTable This Weekend.
Tune in for special live performances by electronic musicians bending space and time through sound and image. Pierce and Matthew from Somnifacient Signals will travel while stationary, collecting and processing images, videos, sounds and field-recordings back and forth between the Alps and Montreal where they have been waiting and working. Combining elements of Gameboy, MPC, synth, and R&B style vocals, IDHAZ creates soundscapes and beats to immerse into. The performance begins at 8pm.
A Black student (Zoe) and her White professor (Janine) meet to discuss a paper about slavery’s effect on the American Revolution. What begins as a polite academic debate of perspectives at a liberal arts college explodes into an intergenerational clash to define “truth" when history is up for grabs. Get tickets to livestream this performance on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
Inspired by the blockbuster movie, see some of the Bay Area’s top comedians at San Francisco’s "Crazy Funny Asians" comedy showcase. Celebrate the Bay’s Asian-American culture and heritage with laughs. It's happening this Friday at 8pm on Zoom. RSVP and you'll get the secret Zoom link right before the show.
Bottlerock Napa 2020 has been set for the weekend of October 2-4, and to get you pumped up for it, (re)live some of the festival’s most memorable moments on YouTube Live. This week we have past performances from Logic, Cypress Hill and a special live-from-home performance by Iration. The show is free and begins at 5pm.
During these unprecedented times, 42nd Street Moon is keeping its artists and audiences connected through interviews, previews, and other tidbits of theatrical joy. This Sunday, test your musical theatre knowledge with live trivia. Play for cash prizes! The quizzing begins at 8pm. Join the Zoom room to participate.
The Stern Grove Festival is being brought to you from the comfort of your own home. Every Sunday at 4:30pm, join host Liam Mayclem on KPIX-TV/Channel 5, and celebrate some of the greatest moments in the Grove. An extended version of the show will be posted on Stern Grove's website, and on their Facebook page and YouTube channel. This week, enjoy a Soulful Sunday.
