Dirty Fun -- Fox News Says So 

Wednesday, Jan 18 2012

Simon Sheppard's reading series has been attacked on Fox News, and it's no wonder. First of all, he writes gay porn, and the very name of the long-running smut reading series he hosts with Carol Queen — Perverts Put Out — is enough to send the likes of Glenn Beck into hyperbolic overdrive (which it did in 2009). Just picture the terror on Beck's face as he read on his program, “It invites guests to 'join your fellow pervs' — I'm quoting — 'join your fellow pervs for some explicit, twisted fun.'" (Glenn, you really should get out more often.) Thing is, Beck got some facts wrong — not about the explicit fun, but about who gets money from the National Endowment for the Arts. (Sheppard does not, nor does Perverts Put Out, or any organization it benefits.) No matter. Sheppard considers it an honor to have been a target, even if it's a false one, and he keeps doing his part to destroy American culture. Tonight's readers include local favorites Sherilyn Connelly (a contributor to SF Weekly's Exhibitionist arts blog), Jen Cross, Daphne Gottleib, Philip Huang, Juba Kalamka, Kirk Read, Thomas Roche, and horehound stillpoint.

  • 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.'"
