Turks All Lit Up 

Wednesday, May 7 2008
The Center for the Art of Translation's monthly Lit & Lunch series provides downtowners with brain refreshments at the noon hour; we wish we worked near the swanky gallery so we could go to amazing literary events with our brown bags. This month, the theme is Turkish Writing Today, and the invitees are Sidney Wade and Erdag Göknar, two translators of major works of Turkish literature. Wade is also a poet, author of Istanbul'dan/From Istanbul, while Göknar is best-known for translating My Name Is Red, a novel by Nobel Laureate Orhan Pamuk.

  • 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.'"
