Poetic Interventions 

Wednesday, May 14 2014

Every month, Writing Without Walls picks a topic and accepts submissions of all forms of writing, choosing the six best pieces and publishing them in a chapbook available for only $5 at the show. This month, which is the 21st installment, features a great lineup of authors writing on the theme "Intervention," including vice president and events coordinator of The Sacramento Poetry Center, Tim Kahl (an incredibly good poet who performs as well as he writes). Joining Kahl are Miquila Alejandre, Chris Carosi, SB Stokes, Gaia Patience Venis, and Sandra Wassilie. "What is fun is how each writer takes the theme as an entry point into a unique creative interpretation," says curator Jeff Von Ward. "The work ultimately coheres as a collection not in spite of but because of each author's originality." Von Ward is looking for a co-producer and invites inquiries; the series is also accepting submissions for their food-themed issue through June 9th.

  • 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.'"
