Round-Robin Readers 

Wednesday, Mar 12 2014

Fiction writers Amrit Chima (Darshan) and judy b. (Stories for Airports) premiere a new series, called Anthology, that features writers who first participate in the open mic portion of their show. Those who present the best work will be invited back for a longer set the following month. "We wanted a no-frills focus on the literature and poetry, nothing to distract from that, yet still [for it to] be lively, and above all, riveting," says Chima. "Finding an audience can be tough for literary fiction writers, even those who read well," adds judy b. "We hope that the open mic will inspire strong writers to develop as live readers." For the inaugural event, they've invited novelist Marian Palaia (The Given World, forthcoming from Simon and Schuster), poet Josef Aukee, New York Times bestseller Jasmin Darznik (The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother's Hidden Life), and InsideStoryTime's James Warner (All Her Father's Guns). Those who wish to perform — and thereby submit themselves to the next show — are encouraged to bring no more than one double-spaced page from which to read. The series will recur on the fourth Wednesday of every month.

  • 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.'"
