    Selvin Watch: By the Numbers In newspaper writing, the saddest mistakes are the ones that are hard to make. That's why watching Joel Selvin's journalism career chokes us up so much. The Chronicle chief pop music critic, who wrote a book about famous ...

    Night Crawler

    A young woman teeters outside Club 181 on 8-inch, patent leather stripper heels. The shoes are a gleaming shade of naughty nurse white that catches the eye from a block away -- perfect for a working girl stuck in the Tenderloin on a drizzly Sunday ni...

    The Impotence of Being Earnest

    Hear This

    Jurassic 5 These days, rap MCs claiming "the mad skills" are about as believable as a Haight Street hippie saying he's got real hash to sell. Believe them, and you'll be rewarded with jaded thoughts or pockets full of Play-Doh. Too many MCs fill ...

    As Phony as a $3 Bill Like folks at Dead shows of the past, where cries of "I need a miracle" wove between drum rumbles and bong gurgles, many of today's aspiring concert attendees can find themselves hoping for tickets, only to find that drugs may n...

    The House of Tudor

    The Bay Area can claim, as her own, some of the world's more interesting literary renegades, and the Tip Top Inn can claim, as her own, some of the Bay Area's more intriguing booze hounds. Tonight, the two converge (not for the first time, mind you) ...

    Hear This

    "Improvise a Picnic" with Rova Saxophone Quartet Explorative jazz improvisers (and their fans) seem like nonparticipants in the greater cultural community. They don't pretend to be hip by catering to the mass-marketed tastes du jour, and they do...

    The Probe Guy - In The Probe, Aaron Muentz writes about sex, booze, and rock 'n' roll -- in that order

    Let's get one thing straight: Aaron Muentz is not the Larry Flynt of punk zines. Nor is he the Hugh Hefner, or the Bob Guccione. "I don't even like porn," says the creator, publisher, and "chief content provider" of The Probe. Frankly, it's not somet...

    The House of Tudor

    Just through door of the Covered Wagon, an epicurean redhead flashes her pearly whites and demands five bucks. Hesitation seems out of the question. She shifts slightly, reaching for the hand stamp that will last through at least two showers and one ...
