Limitless Language 

Wednesday, Mar 5 2014

In celebration of its 40th season, Small Press Traffic brings together Renee Gladman and Eveyln Reilly for a reading of their work. Massachusetts-based Gladman, whose writing (Event Factory) is a dizzying, fascinating combination of prose and poetry that exposes and challenges the limitations of language, joins New York-based eco-poet Reilly, whose work (Styrofoam) addresses the intersections of nature with the human fabrication of materials. Hosted by former SPT director Jocelyn Saidenberg, the event gives each of the authors a chance to stretch out and share a sizable sampling from their vast palettes. Reilly was in Oakland a few months ago for the Studio One Reading Series; more than a few people remarked that they enjoyed allowing her language "to wash over" them and swore they wouldn't miss her return for SPT. A teacher at Brown University, Gladman has helped many writers develop their work, editing the experimental prose chapbook series Leon Works and the Leroy Chapbooks.

  • 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.'"
