Rudy Rucker
Yes, He Is: RU Sirius
Eccentric oddball and author RU Sirius --best known as onetime Editor of cyberpunk bible Mondo 2000-- has just released a new book, "Everybody Must Get Stoned: Rock Stars on Drugs." Sirius calls the book, which details the drug-induced exploits of such noted artists as Keith Richards, Bob Marley, and Paul McCartney and includes a chapter on rap stars and steroids, "a funny, tragic, silly and occasionally lucid piece of excellent trash," while Booklist wrote, "Sirius manages to place James Brown and Charlie Daniels cheek-by-jowl in a list of rock stars against drugs--closer than they ever came corporeally or musically." Sounds like a must-read for your coffee table or bathroom. The book is available from Amazon.

  • 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.'"
