    Sometimes horror movies make us laugh more than they make us scream.

    Grammy Award winning American R&B singer, Patrice Rushen, brings her piano and songwriting skills to Yoshi's Oakland, 510 Embarcadero W., tonight at 7:30. Sushi and a Grammy never tasted so good.

    Everyone loves to sit back and make fun of the formulaic approach used in low budget slasher movies. You know the "brother" always dies first and the attractive bimbo is always going to run screaming to her death. Tonight at the SF Playhouse at 7, "Slasher" makes fun of the genre with Sheena, who gets cast in a slasher movie ontly to realize her life may be in jeopardy.
