You, Gene

Eugene Robinson is, among many other things, the American-man version of P.J. Harvey — where she's eccentric and howling about what's been done to her, he's menacing and howling about what he'll do to you. The iconic frontman of art-metal band Oxbow is also a champion Sanshou and Submission Fighting competitor and the author of a book called FIGHT: everything you ever wanted to know about ass-kicking but were afraid you'd get your ass kicked for asking. He's famous for two things, live: physically “subduing” hecklers, and disrobing. If you have a better nominee for Most Interesting Person in San Francisco This Quarter, then please, please let us know. Tonight he appears as a special guest with Generalissimo, Pegataur, and Nero Order. It's not known exactly what he plans to do onstage: Read? Fight? Sing? Strip?

Generalissimo, Pegataur, and Nero Order share the stage with Eugene Robinson.
