Update (August 2002)
Entotainment Update's format is evolving, but what would work best for
you? What would make you most want to read and possibly check out events
listed below? Email
all thoughts and ideas here (no criticism is too harsh, no suggestion
is too bizarre--we want to know you're out there!!)
|August 10: The Afro
Solo Theater Festival begins with a jazz concert from 1-4 p.m. at
the Esplanade Gardens of Yerba
Buena Gardens. Several solo theater events are presented August
||August 13: Great
Big Sea ("a really aggressive folk band that marries traditional
Celtic music with modern rhythms") are coming back to San Francisco
and we strongly recommend trying to help this Newfoundland outfit fill
up The Fillmore.
|August 17: 1
Giant Leap is a new multimedia project featuring a compelling kaleidoscope
of rhythms, sounds, visuals, interviews and performances from around the
world. It screens under the stars at Yerba Buena Gardens in downtown San
Francisco at 8:00 p.m. "Bring a blanket and experience a marvelous
musical and visual journey around the world!"
||August 18: Comedy
Celebration Day is free in Sharon Meadow of Golden Gate Park and it
may not be quite what it used to be, but perhaps Robin
Williams will be the surprise finale for the first time in a while.
Another great event at Stern
Grove today features the newly re-formed group Arrested Development
with South Africa's famed Mahotella Queens.
|October 26-28: David Cale and Anne
Galjour--two of the finest writer/performers in the universe--will be
reading a new collaborative work, Stars
at Night, at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
