Words Can Never Hurt Me ... Oh Yeah? 

Wednesday, Apr 6 2011
Some of us, in the heat of a break-up in our 20s, may have deleted the electronic folder that held all of our writing in a hysterical, bleary-eyed dive into self-destructive behavior. We thus crafted much bigger regrets than a fleeting screamfest of a “relationship” — one that resulted in the accidental destruction of more than one VCR. (It can really throw a gal off-balance to walk around wearing a dildo.) Yet the disappearance of all that writing also provides, frankly, a relief, and permits a mercifully less-specific (and undocumentable) remorse about being so honest at that tender young age. Tonight at Regreturature, several excellent authors who kept that writing share their most raw and earnest early works in the form of fiction, nonfiction, journalism, and diary entries (!!!) they now deeply regret. Several members of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, including Bad Girl series author Cameron Tuttle and Adderall Diaries scribe Stephen Elliott, boldly hold forth with thoughts they really, really meant at one point. Proceeds benefit Litquake 2011. Supertalented groove turkey Marc Capelle provides live music, and always-hilarious Jack Boulware hosts.

  • 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.'"
