SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — KCBS reporter Liam Mayclem will be providing KPIX 5 users with a weekly weekend tip list of Bay Area entertainment, music, film and online entertainment.
MUSIC PARODY: SAN DOMENICO SCHOOL
The teachers of San Domenico School in Marin County have lots to celebrate, boasting the fact that they made it through the pandemic safely and being one of just a handful of schools that invited the kids back to class last September. The Elton John parody was unleashed at the recent school fundraiser and it’s catching on across the internet. Hoping today’s play gets them a few more hits. Bravo, so very glad the faculty at San Domenico are still standing AND teaching.
MUSIC: JESIKA VON RABBIT
The reigning pop queen of the desert Jesika Von Rabbit has released a pandemic-inspired pop song, Bombay Bunny. Yes, it makes you want to hop and get lost in JVR’s psychedelic pop haze. The catchy, intoxicating tune is available for download via iTunes and can be streamed via YouTube. I’m a fan. Go JVR.
FESTIVAL : OUTSIDE LANDS
Lizzo is the headliner on the opening night of Outside Lands, the three-day music fest in San Francisco‘s Golden Gate Park on Halloween weekend. More than 90 bands will perform at the fest, with Lizzo on Friday, The Strokes headlining Saturday and Tame Impala on Halloween Sunday. It’s one of the first big music festivals to return post-pandemic.
FILM: LIMBO – NOW PLAYING
If you need your ribs tickled and heart tugged all at once this is the film. Limbo is about a group of Syrian refugees who end up on a remote Scottish Island. Hilarity ensures but with the laughs comes heart and sorrow and compassion for those who come from another land for a better life.
