Full Belly, Happy Brain 

Wednesday, Aug 14 2013

If you haven't caught one of the readings put on by Crys Lehman and Leonard Crosby in their voluminous backyard, then you've been missing out. And this week is your last chance of the season to catch one. This Thursday, Lehman and Crosby host a lineup that includes Sarah Bushman, whose poetry melted a roomful of faces last month at a house party in Oakland, and Juliana Delgado Lopera, who wrote the SF Weekly cover story "An Oral History of Queer Latin Immigrants" that came out during Pride. Fellow readers include Dan Lau, Emily Weinstein, Nick Johnson, and Carolyn Ho, all of whom have small posses of fans who follow them around. No joke. This series begins with free booze and food, including homemade pie made from the fruit of the yard's sole pear tree. The readings start when everyone's sated, and a bonfire follows.

  • 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.'"
