Tomorrow: Murder Mystery Dinner (But Not Lame)

Posted By on Mon, Jun 20, 2011 at 2:45 PM


Matthew Stadler Book Tour/Sit-Down Dinner

Where: Hub SoMa, 901 Mission (at Fifth St.)

When: Tue., June 21, 7 p.m.

Cost: $60

The rundown: When most authors go on book tours, the best nibbles will probably be a bit of Cabot and crackers, maybe washed down with a sippy cup of Two-Buck Chuck. And that's if you're lucky. Tomorrow night, author and "literary organizer" Matthew Stadler will put these bush league events to shame with a full Mexican dinner celebrating his new murder mystery, Chloe Jarren's La Cucaracha. The grub will be prepared by roving Bay Area chef Leif Hedendal and will include birria de chivo (goat stew); potatoes, beans, and artichokes; and lettuce and radish salad with avocado and goat cheese, accompanied by tequila, aguas frescas, and wines. You'll also get an advance, handmade copy of the book, as well as some talky-talk with Stadler.* Fair warning, book tours: The bar has been raised.

Buy tickets at Publication Studios' website

*If you want to see Stadler without any food, he will speak for free on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at the Kadist Art Foundation, 3295 20th St. (at Folsom).

  • 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.'"
