Loud Alleys 


Literary group Quiet Lightning is collaborating with City Lights for a reading in Kerouac Alley this week. Selected submitters will read their own works of writing to create what Quiet Lightning is known for: A tapestry of stories the group likes to refer to as a "literary mixtape." The upcoming show is part of Q.L.'s "Tour Through Town," during which the organization is teaming up with another Bay Area literary organization each month to collaborate and learn from each other and come up with new approaches to the lit reading format. Quiet Lightning shows always draw talented presenters and large audiences; this show at S.F.'s most famous literary alleyway should be no exception and will likely be haunted by the spirits of the city's heroes of the written word. Not in a scary way, but you know.

Sun., Sept. 22, 2-4 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
