SPECIAL EVENT

(((folkYEAH!))) & KFJC Present
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
+ Patrick Shiroishi
Doors 7pm / Show 8pm
Tickets: http://folkyeah.com/#/godspeed-you-black-emperor-san-francisco-2019

Godspeed You! Black Emperor will be taking their mesmerizing live show to audiences across the United States, Canada and Europe this Summer and Fall. Following the release of 2017’s widely praised LP Luciferian Towers, GY!BE have been captivating audiences worldwide with their torrential live sound and accompanying stack of 16mm film projectors, and they’re back at it again.

"Demanding, complex, wordless music, directed in part at the off-switch of the Information Age. Godspeed expects an interpretive exchange from listeners, and rewards surrender to the transaction… precise in its dissonance and generous with its emotions." - NPR

 
     
   


WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 25

Another Planet presents
LOVETT OR LEAVE IT
Doors 7:00, Show 8:00

Lovett or Leave It is a wildly popular, critically beloved and deeply sexy podcast hosted by former Obama speechwriter Jon Lovett. Each week, he's joined by comedians, journalists, activists, elected officials, actors (not annoying ones), and musicians to break down the latest news, quiz the audience, and mock the endless frustrations and absurdities of our broken political nightmare factory.

Jon Lovett is a former presidential speechwriter, as well as a TV writer, podcast host, and straight shooter WIDELY respected on both sides. In 2017, he founded Crooked Media with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, to build a progressive media network with shows, analysis, and sweet, sweet content that informs, entertains, and inspires action. There, he co-hosts “Pod Save America” and hosts “Lovett or Leave It,” two of the most popular political podcasts in the country. Before Crooked, he served as a presidential speechwriter in the Obama White House, co-created a comedy on NBC called “1600 Penn” (which was cancelled after one perfect season), and wrote speeches for Hillary Clinton. Jon was also once named “Washington’s funniest celebrity” before he left the nation’s capital forever.
