Like every good American Dream story, Lil Bub's life started out in a small town with little chance of making it big. Born the runt of a litter in a tool shed in Indiana, she wasn't only the smallest, she was a "perma-kitten," which means she'll stay the size of a kitten her entire life. As cute as that sounds, she also has an assortment of physical abnormalities (a couple very obvious ones are in photo above).

But these physical limitations of cat-dwarfism didn't keep her from becoming famous -- she has a book, a television show and movie. Heck, she's at the top of A-list animal stars -- rubbing shoulders with the likes of Boo and Grumpy Cat. But she's not just hobnobbing with the rich and famous, she's also an advocate for homeless and special needs pets.

If you'd like the chance to meet her, see her movie, and get a signed copy of her book, (we're not sure what "signed" by Lil Bub actually means), then you'll get your chance on September 8, at the Rickshaw Stop.

  • 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.'"
