This is perfect grilled cheese weather, and local writer celeb Dave Eggers is serving up a whole batch of 'em for free to the public next week. It's part of a pair of pretty cool sounding McSweeney's events for Austin author Bill Cotter, whose book, Fever Chart, was released by Eggers' publishing house. The novel focuses on a post-institutionalized Jerome Coe, who grabs a ride to New Orleans around Mardi Gras and ends up with "a bandaged hand, world-champion grilled cheese sandwiches, and only the occasional psychotic break."

To hear more about this book, and to nosh on Cotter and Eggers' handiwork, go to City Lights on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. Cotter will be there with his wife, poet Annie La Ganga. Two nights later, on the 19th, Cotter moves over to Amnesia, where his celebrity literary sandwich servers include Starlee Kine, a great This American Life contributor. That night will also showcase music by accordionist Rob Reich, who'll offer a fitting soundtrack to the New Orleans theme (and who just happened to be the guest DJ on KUSF early this morning).  Both readings/eatings are free, but definitely arrive early if you go.

  • 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.'"
