The Lil' Bitch Tour Comes to San Francisco

Posted By on Fri, Aug 10, 2012 at 12:39 PM

The Lil' Bitch is a complicated, contradictory creature to be handled with care. Don't ask her what's wrong, because nothing's wrong, she's just inflicted with an unfortunate condition known as "resting bitch face." But if something's wrong, it usually has to do with the fact that the lil' bitch really doesn't like to do things the lil' bitch doesn't want to do. She's gonna be mean to you, but she doesn't mean it, so you can't be mean back. She's not trying to be a lil' bitch, she's just misunderstood. In the literary world, the lil' bitch writes up dry, sarcastic observations that make their way back to sweet, funny, and earnest just in time to win you back. Four of these lil' bitches, male and female, make up the, duh, Lil' Bitch Tour, coming to San Francisco on August 15.

Chelsea Martin is an illustrator and writer who regularly contributes her heartbreaking comics to The Rumpus. Jimmy Chen is a "funny man" who recently revealed a sexually graphic e-mail correspondence to readers on HTML GIANT. Elizabeth Ellen wrote a chapbook called Before You She Was a Pit Bull, really showcasing her empathy for the crazier side of Woman, while the characters in Scott McClanahan's haunting stories find themselves fearful of the insanity hiding in everyone. All four writers will read their fiction, confessional Internet personae, and other morally ambiguous and jaded bits and pieces.

Stories begin around 8 p.m. but doors open at 7:30 for drinks and mingling at Press Works on Paper, 3492 22nd St. Admission is free.

  • 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.'"
