Tacos, LSD, and Jesus: The Stranger vs. The Believer Storytelling

Posted By on Tue, Oct 30, 2012 at 11:30 AM


We're not sure how The Believer still has time to run a magazine, it seems so busy printing parties lately. From the rockin' Tumbeliever (Tumblr/Believer) celebration to the Calvin Johnson mixtape road show, you can anticipate any of their events to be knockouts. Thursday's, When We Were Young and Dumb: The Stranger vs. The Believer, features writers from the magazine and Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger going head to cerebral head with tales from their youth.

In the right corner on Team Believer is McSweeney's Editor Brian McMullen, Publisher Laura Howard, and the youngest member of Oulipo (a literary badge of honor!), Daniel Levin Becker. In the far, far left corner we've got The Stranger's Editor-in-Chief Christopher Frizzelle, Managing Editor Bethany Jean Clement, and the always bright and bawdy Lindy West, who are all promoting their book How to Be a Person: The Stranger's Guide to College, Sex, Intoxicants, Tacos, and Life Itself. When you've got this many whip-smarts in one room, there's no telling what stories will emerge from their lips, though it's a fairly safe bet that Jesus, LSD, and virginity are involved.

When We Were Young and Dumb starts Thursday, Nov. 1 at 6 p.m. at the Make-Out Room, 3225 22nd St. (at Mission), S.F. 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.'"
