The Bar Gets Quiet 

Wednesday, Nov 11 2009
Charlie Anders, blond of bob and mini of skirt, is the hostess with the mostest science fiction at her literary hootenanny, Writers with Drinks. (She's also the news editor of io9, Gawker's sci-fi/fantasy blog.) Aside from Anders' charming ways, the lineup of readers is always delightful: Among the gems this month is puppeteer Mary Robinette Kowal, who has performed for Jim Henson Pictures and on LazyTown. Kowal also won a Campbell Award for best new science-fiction writer, and her story “Evil Robot Monkey” is a sweet and funny tale sure to whet anyone’s appetite for her upcoming novel, Shades of Milk and Honey. She is joined by Javier Grillo-Marxuach, S. Bear Bergman, Naomi Quinonez, and Kat Richardson. Tonight’s show is a benefit for El/La Programa Para TransLatinas, a group providing HIV prevention services, counseling, and other support for the trans Latina community in San Francisco’s Mission District.

  • 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.'"
