Tonight: Keith Gessen, literary shit-stirrer, at Booksmith

Posted By on Tue, Apr 29, 2008 at 9:47 AM

If you've got some free time around 7 p.m. tonight, Keith Gessen will be reading at Booksmith up on Haight Street. He got a glowing profile in the NY Times on Sunday, although the article dug into his controversial stand in the writing community -- he's taken on our local Bay Area icons Dave Eggers and McSweeney's, among other beloved writing stars. The n + 1 editor reads from his new book, All the Sad Young Literary Men. And look, even moms like him (scroll down for his name). -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
