Lost & Found: Davy Rothbart Comes to San Francisco & Shares Your Trash

Posted By on Fri, Oct 4, 2013 at 11:28 AM

One person's trash is another person's meal ticket.

Davy Rothbart has made a career of curating and publishing people's discarded love letters, to-do lists and birthday cards. This led to the creation of Found Magazine, the release of his acclaimed memoir, My Heart is an Idiot and most recently a 20-city tour where he'll share the latest finds in paper napkin poetry and Post-it apologies.

Found Magazine's Unfinished Business Tour comes to San Francisco on Thursday, Oct. 10 at JCC-SF Arts & Ideas. Rothbart will offer a rare glimpse into the innermost thoughts of unsuspecting people and read standout submissions that have made their way to the Found headquarters.

Who knows. Maybe your forgotten break-up letter makes into the show along with someone else's grocery list reminder to pick up diapers. There's only one way to find out.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door; 8 p.m. at JCC-SF (3200 California).

  • 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.'"
