Daphne, Daphne, Daphne 

Wednesday, Jul 30 2008
What happens when you find yourself the object of fan fiction? A character in other people's stories? What does privacy really mean when you write confessional poetry and haunt the internet? Instead of running from the phenomenon, San Francisco poet Daphne Gottlieb decided to embrace it, asking friends and strangers to contribute to an anthology about... herself. Fucking Daphne: Mostly True Stories and Fictions collects the resulting (mostly lascivious) fact and fiction. Which is which? You'll have to decide for yourself. Gottlieb also reads tonight from her new collection of stories and poems, Kissing Dead Girls, which chops up work from Gertrude Stein and Walt Whitman and tosses it in with bits of pop culture from The Exorcist and The Devil in Miss Jones. Postmodern and postfeminist fun.

  • 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.'"
