Very Pride of its Books 

Wednesday, Jun 5 2013

Local superhero indie outfit Manic D Press has reason to be proud every month: Almost exclusively Jennifer Joseph's one-woman show since 1984, the press puts outs quality books that, when it started, no one else would have dared to publish. In its almost 30 years, Manic D has pushed alternative literature and the people who write it into the mainstream. To celebrate Pride Month, Joseph has wrangled a stunning lineup of its authors to read at Books Inc. Castro. You might want to get there early for this one: Daphne Gottlieb, Michelle Tea, Justin Chin, Alvin Orloff, and Larry-bob Roberts are all legends, and joining them are Stephanie Rosenbaum (The Astrology Cookbook: A Cosmic Guide to Feats of Love), who will present food from her book, and the main course, if you will: Daniel LeVesque, whose novel Hairdresser on Fire is all the rage.

  • 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.'"
