Some weekends, I just want to relax or get stuff done. Other weekends, there's just too much to do, like this weekend.
Last night's Puppet Love at CounterPulse written up by the SF Chronicle provided childlike fun and amusement, with my pal Seth Eisen's piece being a standout.
Tonight, it's off to the Herbst Theatre for the opening event of Litquake, an eight-day festival of author readngs and events. Armistead Maupin gets honored by actress Laura Linney, plus authors Amy Tan, Michelle Tea, and K.M. Soehnlein. Jon Ginoli of Pansy Division and cast members of Beach Blanket Babylon are set to perform. Look for my write-up in next week's BAR.
And next Saturday, Oct. 13, the closing night Lit Crawl barrage of readings going on at bookstores, bars, cafes and galleries all over town. I'll be reading at Revolution Cafe at 8pm with Thea Hillman, Nona Caspers, Elana Dykewomon, Ali Liebegott, Matt Bernstein Sycamore, and Kemble Scott (author of SoMa and main organizer of Litquake events). 8pm. Revolution Cafe, 3248 22nd St. I'll probably read the most graphic sex scene in Cyclizen, just to keep people's attention!
Then, it's either off to the Litquake closing party, or showing up late for the SF Fog Rugby football Club'sBalls Out Ball. See ruggers do the "full monty!" I'm not kidding.
Tomorrow, will it be the Castro Street Fair or the Burning Man Decompression Party, or both?
So much for a "relaxing" weekend. At least those darn Blue Angel planes have shut up for now.
