Howard Zinn Bookfair Recommended

When: Sat., Nov. 15, 11 a.m. 2014
Price: free


More than 100 authors are celebrating subversive books with a day of panels, discussions, and readings. The Howard Zinn Bookfair's topics range from exile — literal and metaphysical — to union organizing and San Francisco's housing situation. The day ends with a play inspired by in-depth interviews conducted by Sarah Shourd — either through mail or visits — with more than a dozen people across the country who are living in, or have lived through, prolonged solitary confinement in U.S. prisons. Dozens of publishers and booksellers will be on hand, along with authors such as Robin DG Kelly, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, TJ English, Eric Drooker, and Terry Bisson.

  • 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.'"
