What? Poetry with no BS? 

Wednesday, Sep 17 2008
Most of what we know about Poetry at the 33 is that Kim Addonizio either used to hang out there or still does. That may sound like it isn't very much to go on, but Addonizio is one of the city's most underrated talents. She's a fucking genius, if you want to know the truth. If there's any justice in the world, Poetry at the 33 is destined to someday be one of those places young writers make pilgrimages to from all over the world, just to take in the atmo at the very same bar Kim Addonizio used to sit at. Or maybe still does. We're fans, not stalkers. "Did she compose poems at the booth over there?" The travelers will wonder. "Did she come up with the idea for (her novel) Little Beauties while watching people walk by?"

  • 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.'"
