They Come to Stab Caesar 

Wednesday, Mar 3 2010
Is writing fiction the same as being insane and a liar? Making up stories is definitely something you can get in trouble for. Even trying to document everyday life can get complicated: One person’s “I went to the store for a half-gallon of tomato juice” is another’s “Rampant moonlight violated oily pools of scuzzwater.” Both are factual, but only one will get you accused of drug use. The four fabricators at “Beware the Ides of March” don’t even care. Tonight, Johnny Strike, the lead singer of legendary S.F. punk band Crime, reads from his prolific and imaginative oeuvre, over a “squall of sound.” Alvin Orloff sasses, Carrie Hall reads from her second novel (writing two novels in this memoir-only publishing era is ... brave), and Pushcart Prize nominee and former Piglatin singer Roger Pinnell also reads.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
