Do Not Go Gentle 

Wednesday, Dec 7 2011
There’s lots more to savor in the winter issue of literary magazine Zyzzyva than Katie Chase’s scary/sweet story “Bloodfeud,” but for our money that’s the yank-you-by-the-short-hairs standout. It’s genre-bursting fiction that pairs up the joys of cheerleading with the in-the-blood madness of a backwoods family feud. Its prose is by turns mean-girl sharp, noir dark, and winningly lyrical; out loud its insights and surprises should kill. We hope to find out tonight, when Chase and other contributors convene.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
