Bucky Sinister's New Book Still Standing at The Business

Posted By on Tue, Mar 15, 2011 at 3:00 PM


Every Wednesday, four dudes and their friends do alternative comedy at the Dark Room; it's called The Business. By dudes we mean Alex Koll, Chris Garcia, Sean Keane, and Bucky Sinister; by alternative we mean smart, and by Dark Room we mean the tiny and awesome theater on Mission. This Wednesday, Mr. Sinister does the impossible, again: He makes recovery from addiction interesting to read about even if you're not recovering in his second book on the subject, Still Standing.

His other one, Get Up, is about how to do the 12 steps if you don't believe in any god and have good taste in music -- to our knowledge the only book ever to do so and be funny at the same time. This new one is a series of interviews with people besides the author who do the 12 steps and don't believe in any god and have good taste in music. Keep in mind that it's all done with complete respect for the process -- Sinister fights the fight every day, yet he still has good taste in music.

The Business is a great, wide-ranging, weird, intelligent show every single week, but a new Bucky Sinister book is cause for celebration. He assures us there'll be other readings and events for Still Standing, too.

The Business starts at 8 p.m. at the Dark Room. Admission is $5..

  • 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.'"
