A novel with Potential 

Wednesday, Jun 11 2014

"The sexual revolution is finally over, and Ariel Schrag has won." Or so says Alison Bechdel about Schrag's scathingly funny new novel, Adam. Schrag reads from her new book in an unforgettable evening with the Eisner-nominated cartoonist behind the graphic novel memoirs Potential and Likewise. Schrag's writing credits also include work on television series such as Showtime's The L Word and HBO's How To Make It In America. In her hilarious debut novel, she tells the story of a young man who, after moving to New York City to live with his lesbian sister and being mistaken for a trans boy by a young woman who'd have no interest in him otherwise, considers using the mix-up to his advantage. Schrag's riotous, poignant debut novel will leave you reeling. Don't miss the fantastic night full of laughter, conversation, and most importantly, stories.

  • 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.'"
