Lil’ Kim 

Wednesday, Jan 21 2009
Kim Addonizio pumps iron, teaches poetry, and writes about the insane using her shockproof bullshit detector. When we saw her last, she was winning an episode of the Literary Death Match. At first we thought she was losing, because she was up against a beautiful and funny story about mustaches told by Rhea DeRose-Weiss, who is pretty and brought a standup-bass player to accompany her. But we shouldn't have worried: Addonizio came onstage and told a better story, subtly flexing her tattooed guns the whole time, and then rocked out on her harmonica with a soulful Delta blues song that had nothing to do with anything, but which proved her to be the clear victor. We'll never doubt again.

Addonizio, Kate Moses, Michelle Richmond, and Elizabeth Rosner read this evening as part of “Bad Girls.”

  • 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.'"
