Basement Stories 

Wednesday, Feb 26 2014

Curated quarterly by a quartet of USF MFA alumni, Babylon Salon seems intent on constantly upping the ante. Held in the swank Cantina's basement, which has its own bar serving fresh fruit and root cocktails, the series features a handful of emerging and established writers in an intimate setting. The curation is always done with care and each season seems to boast a stronger lineup. Headliners for this installment are The New Yorker 20 under 40 fiction phenom Daniel Alarcon (At Night We Walk in Circles) and New York Times bestseller Katie Crouch (Abroad), who are joined by Robin Sloan (Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore), American Poetry Review Honickman First Book Prize-winner Melissa Stein (Rough Honey), and short story writer Molly Antopol, who was recently honored as one of the National Book Award's 5 writers under 35 for her debut The UnAmericans.

  • 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.'"
