Quiet Riot

Posted By on Sun, Apr 14, 2013 at 2:11 PM


For the fourth year of the local reading series hosted by Quiet Lightning, the group has embarked on a Tour Through Town, inviting like-minded organizations to join in and shape its monthly events in new directions.

The latest scenario pushes boundaries beyond books and short stories and into more griot-like expression. The evening is a partnership with S.F.'s 10-year-old Porchlight, a series organized by Beth Lisick and Arline Klatte that typically explores storytelling that's not limited to the written word, an interesting contrast to Quiet Lightning's celebration of premeditated prose. Performers include Rupya Marya, a singer-songwriter who also practices medicine, and Mario de la Vega, an acclaimed film writer and director.

Tour Through Town starts tomorrow at 8 p.m. at The Verdi Club, 2424 Mariposa, S.F. Admission is $15-$20; call 861-9199 or visit

  • 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.'"
