Working for the Weakened




Working for the Weakened

Originally uploaded by Thomas Roche

I will once again be reading at Working for the Weakened, now in its second weekend at The Dark Room on Mission St. Last week visitors heard about my job tallying 20-digit numbers for an international conglomerate that rented oceangoing rail containers, and the horrors of free porn. There was also some amazing stuff from the likes of Daphne Gottlieb, horehound stillpoint, video artist Lev, Uphill Both Ways, Things We Made, Jim Fourniadis, SPF7, Lauren Wheeler, Meliza Banales, and my longtime compatriot Carol Queen not to mention brilliant host Sherily Connelly. It was an awesome time to be had for a wee price.

This weekend’s lineup looks even more impressive! Note in particular the presence of visionary John Shirley… the dude who put the punk in cyberpunk, then put it back in splatterpunk; he has written lyrics for Blue Oyster Cult, I shit you not. Also Beth Lisick, Bucky Sinister… we be kickin’ it old school, people. Miss it at your peril.
