Stop Waiting for Lefty 

Wednesday, Apr 30 2008
The literary who's-who at "Strike! Igniting the Fuse of Possibility," includes accomplished and lauded poets like Jack Hirschman, Diane di Prima, and Michael McClure, as well as hard-to-label writers like Guillermo Gomez-Peña and Bucky Sinister. Then there's your standard amazing local authors such as Charlie Anders and Justin Chin, and finally, 23 other loudmouths. The occasion is May Day, the traditional International Workers Day, and the attitude is practical: How can regular people fight injustice? Thirty intellectuals give you three minutes each of their ideas about resistance to a phrase we've never heard before --"disaster capitalism." In light of the private armies and defense contractors freaking us out recently, though, the term makes perfect sense.

  • 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.'"
