Underneath the Radar 

Wednesday, May 28 2008
Armistead Maupin is so gay! We saw him read at a Litquake event years ago, and the best part of the whole night was hearing rumors about how he and Cintra Wilson were having an ego-off backstage. We knew something was going on, because he came onstage and made a really off-color remark about how sorry he was that he was gay, now that he'd been staring at Cintra Wilson's ass from backstage. Did it involve the word "pork?" We hope not. Or we hope so. Regardless, the man who wrote Tales of the City (which made everyone in the U.S. want to be gay) is reading at the Radar Reading Series during gay month, along with NYC punker Cristy C. Road and Nuyorican poet Emanual Xavier. As usual, host Michelle Tea offers cookies to everyone who asks a question during the after-reading panel discussion.

  • 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.'"
