My Author Lives in the City and Reads to Me 

Wednesday, Aug 19 2009
Stephen Elliott, the man capable of such simply stated poetry as put forth in novels Happy Baby and A Life Without Consequences, turns his often obscenely literate (in a tie-up-your-balls way --— see My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up) pen to true crime. Elliott’s most impressive feat is the expression of his experience --— beyond his formidable vocabulary and his well-documented super-connectedness with the man-giants of literature --— as well as the quality of his observation and the willingness to include his person in submissively honest analysis. The Stephen Elliott Book Release Party celebrating his latest, The Adderall Diaries, includes a reading by Tobias Wolff and is hosted by hilarious love machine Bucky Sinister. Entry price includes a hardcover copy of the book, snacks, and music by by Terra Naomi and the Yellow Dress.

  • 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.'"
