Lit Up 

Wednesday, Oct 1 2008
The Mission on a Saturday night, rife with the unexpected: Sidle your ass down an alley and you might find two stiltwalkers strumming banjos. The next doorway might hold salsa dancers playing spin the bottle. Tonight, books break open and the jailbreak prose sings as Lit Crawl hits the hood, severing writers from their keyboards and tumbling them into gutters and rathskellers. At 6 p.m., Bucky Sinister corrals Tarin Towers, Amanda Coggin, and others into Clarion Alley, while food writers Novella Carpenter and Sarah Deseran spice up 18 Reasons. At 7:15 p.m. there’s erotica on the tongues at Good Vibrations, and the Grotto denizens shoulder their way upstairs at the Elbo Room. At 8:30 p.m. the Lone Palm harbors survivors of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and writers for The Believer share the faith at the Latin American Club. There are too many readings to list, so, to mangle an already mangled Mark Twain quote, if you don’t like the entertainment, turn the corner.

  • 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.'"
