At Tosca Café

Twin brothers Jack and Benny Lipson, professionally known as the critically acclaimed jackbenny, will make their San Francisco debut at the Sunday Social Club at Tosca Café on Sunday, December 16, at 7pm. The duo will present their two-act show featuring wittily provocative original songs, uniquely arranged covers, and friendly guest performers ... all seasoned with the brothers' signature sibling shtick.

Said StageSceneLA.com, "Rarely has an LA theatre audience been more generation- bridging than jackbenny's ranging in age from 20somethings to septuagenarians and everything in between. I had a sensational time."

After years of studying, performing, and writing a wide range of music individually, Los Angeles native twin brothers Jack and Benny Lipson united to birth the project jackbenny, which injects musical theatre storytelling into a gamut of musical styles. Their progressive and fresh harmonic language, informed by jazz and classical roots, complements their progressive, savvy lyrics that explore queer identity, climate change, monogamy, and many other contemporary social and cultural phenomena. jackbenny's comedically energetic performances guide audiences on a candid tour through the fragile, well-curated millennial mind.

The Lipson brothers shared their debut show in 2016 with musician-comedian Reggie Watts, and have since played their "sensational, clever, and astute" originals to sold out audiences in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago, and they are set to make their San Francisco debut on December 16. To round out the year, they will appear with The Bombshells at Three Clubs Lounge in Hollywood on December 19.

As the house band for Anita Procedure's bi-monthly Queer Cabaret in Los Angeles, jackbenny has collaborated with artists including Emmy Award-winning actors Darren Criss and Jai Rodriguez, and Tony Award-winning director Michael Arden, and they play regularly with undie-rockers The Skivvies on the West Coast. jackbenny is developing Brainstorm, a three-character song cycle of their music. On Wednesday, December 19, the twins will be appearing with The Bombshells for an evening of Holiday Harmony at Three Clubs Cocktail Lounge in Hollywood.

Admission for jackbenny at Sunday Social Club at Tosca Café on Sunday, December 16, at 7pm is $45 which includes a seasonal prix-fixe dinner. Seats are available online at www.jackbennynow.com/live/sf or by phone at (415) 986-9651. Tosca Café is located at 242 Columbus Avenue in San Francisco, 94133.
