Get Lit with The Believer and Tumblr This Saturday

Posted By on Fri, Jun 22, 2012 at 8:00 AM


How Should a Person Be? is the title of Sheila Heti's new book, and the answer is, "They should start by being at the Make-Out Room this Saturday for one sexy, lit-ted out mashup brought to you by Tumblr and The Believer magazine."

It's the first time that our New York friends at Tumblr are co-hosting a West Coast writers' party, and because we don't have a chip on our shoulder, we need to show those East Coast bloggers that we are the rowdiest literary nerds around. It's also Sheila Heti's only S.F. reading on the tour of her book, which David Shields calls "funny and sexy and smart" and also aptly portends Saturday night's mixer. There to accompany her in style are the lovely Melissa Graeber, Mills Baker, Joshua Heineman, and The Rumpus's Isaac Fitzgerald, all fierce writers and culture-shapers in their own right.

Would you miss a new-fashioned night of booknerds and bloggers mingling over old-fashioneds? We didn't think so.

The party starts June 23 at 6 p.m. at the Make-Out Room, 3225 22nd St. (at Mission). Admission is free.

Also, check out our interview with the very wise and funny Sheila Heti.

  • 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.'"
