One hears stories about literature graduate students and the library carrels they get keys to. Such desk-sized offices are private, and for people already turned on by books, well, one hears stories. Good stories. Author and editor Kevin Bentley worked in a bookstore for nine years, and apparently, libraries aren't the only book-filled rooms to see action. As the editor of several anthologies, such as Demon Lovers and Afterwords: Real Sex From Gay Men's Diaries, he's got the chops to pull together a smart and slutty group of stories. Jim Coughenour, Danny Gruber, Ron Gutierrez, Simon Sheppard, and Bentley himself contribute to Sex By the Book, which, taken as a whole, depicts a world where literacy and hotness are not mutually exclusive. Remember the words of the great John Waters: "If you go home with someone, and there are no books in their apartment, do not fuck them."

  • 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.'"
