Angry Sex 

Wednesday, Jan 30 2008
HarperCollins, publisher, hypes Stephen Elliott's new anthology Sex for America with a list of males: Anthony Swofford, Jerry Stahl, Rick Moody, and Jonathan Ames. Funny — we don't give much of a shit about the dudes. It's the chicks we dig: Michelle Tea, Charlie Anders, Daphne Gottlieb, and Michelle Richmond. All are contributors to the collection of "politically inspired erotica," and lucky for us, the readers at the book launch party are exactly those local leading ladies. Even more woman is on the bill, in the forms of burlesque singer Mariel a la Mode and circus performer Catharine Fox, who has a gold necklace from the Olympic committee. Oh, and we're just kidding about the man-hating. We're sure they're very talented, and probably pretty cute when they get all mad about the upcoming election.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
