One Love, Two Lawyers 

Wednesday, Jun 11 2014

A year after the U.S. Supreme Court made LGBT history by overturning Proposition 8, California's same-sex marriage ban, Books Inc. and the San Francisco LGBT Community Center host the lawyers who argued the case in a celebration of their victory. David Boies and Theodore B. Olson — lawyers who were hailed by Time magazine in 2010 as two of the most influential people in the world — will be discussing their book, Redeeming the Dream: The Case for Marriage Equality. Boies has argued some of the most important cases in recent history, such as Westmoreland v. CBS and Bush v. Gore. Olson, the country's most prominent appellate attorney, has argued multiple cases before the Supreme Court, including Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Redeeming the Dream recounts the incredible story of Olson and Boies' five-year struggle for LGBT rights, which resulted in the proposition's 2013 defeat. Don't miss what is sure to be a fascinating presentation.

  • 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.'"
