Return to the Scene 

Wednesday, Jan 29 2014

Janey Smith's popular poetry parties, Live at 851, were forced to find a new home at the end of last year when the abandoned apartment in which they were held was boarded up and protected by the police. After a few stints in the basement of a Tenderloin retail shop, the series returns to the original building... in Smith's apartment. Featuring Rauan Klassnik, visiting from Washington in support of his new book The Moon's Jaw; Alana Siegel, who just published Archipelago, which, in the words of Jerome Rothenberg, "adds a new presence & intelligence to a major subset of postmodern American poetry;" Steven Seidenberg, whose just-published first book Itch is a fascinating combination of philosophy and poetry; and poet TJ Lyons. This is definitely a BYOB affair. Be prepared to mingle.

  • 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.'"
