Barbara Rose Brooker

Even with Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries, Stephen Elliott's Adderall Diaries, and my own forthcoming Flintstones Vitamins Diaries (just you wait) on the scene, the topsy-turvy pharmacological reminiscence subgenre of literature still has room for Barbara Rose Brooker's Viagra Diaries (Llumina Press, $20). It's a novel about an aging San Francisco columnist doing research on the mating habits of fogeys. It's worth noting that Brooker didn't publish her first novel until she was 50, and apparently got pretty busy, as it were, after that.

  • 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.'"
