Reckless Release 

Wednesday, May 14 2014

Cassandra Dallett is a longtime East Bay literary presence who manages to tell it how it is. She knows how to have a good time, and Manic D Press knows how to publish quality books by subversive, underrepresented voices, so this release party for Dallett's debut collection Wet Reckless ought to be a match made in Berkeley. A trio of poet friends will join Dallett in reading: Joel Landmine, whose titles are sometimes longer than his poems, and Alexandra Naughton, who runs the Be About It zine/press/reading series — both of whom have new debut books out from Punk Hostage Press — and M.K. Chavez (Next Exit #9 with John Sweet and Virgin Eyes) who has the uncanny ability to knock the air out of a room. Dallett said, at a reading late last year, that she wouldn't be the poet she is without Chavez as an inspiration.

  • 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.'"
