Stark Raving Sanity 

Wednesday, Mar 5 2014

New from the Michelle Tea-edited Sister Spit imprint on City Lights Books is the debut novel from Dia Felix, Nochita, which follows the wanderings of a young girl who leaves two sets of inadequate parents for an uncertain, destinationless path of self-discovery. Told in short, easy-to-digest chapters that span everything from anecdotes to notes to self ("Every living thing is breathing in its own way. Breathe in your way."), the book is seductive and wild, at once a journey to voice and a link between voice and what it means to be "so alive!" Based in New York, Felix is a filmmaker who's screened at independent festivals and won awards for digital media production for museums (including The Exploratorium). Joining her for the reading will be the poet Camille Roy (Sherwood Forest), whose brazen New Narrative work should prove an excellent pairing.

  • 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.'"
