Kelsey Street Press has been publishing daring, experimental work for 40 years, including collaborations between poets and visual artists, and a long and growing list of authors' first books. Further, the Berkeley-based press has spawned other like-minded publishing houses and helped to broaden conversations about the fluidity between categories too often considered distinct, such as prose and poetry, male and female. To celebrate, the press is kicking off a trio of April events in the area with a reading and conversation that focuses on Embodiment, Gender and Experimental Writing. Panelists include Patricia Dienstfrey, Amber DiPietra, Eleni Stecopoulos, and Nico Peck, and Susan Gevirtz moderates. A reception follows, and Kelsey Street Press books are on display through May 30.

  • 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.'"
