Dawn 2004 is an all-night music/performance event tomorrow (Tuesday) night in San Francisco in celebration of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. It's $15 for the entire night of eclectic programming: Russel Simins from Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Broun Fellinis, Heather Gold, DJ Polywog, and a host of other artists. At 10pm, I'm conducting a live interview with RU Sirius about his forthcoming book, Counterculture Through the Ages. Please stop by if you can!
"RU Sirius (aka Ken Goffman) and David Pescovitz take a mind-expanding trip though history to uncover the common threads of counterculture that link biblical Abraham to the Socratics, the revolutionaries of the Enlightenment, the Yippies of the 1960s, and the hacktivists of today. Sirius will reveal how countercultures-- anti-authoritarian, changeable, antic movements that revolutionize mainstream culture--are a powerful and necessary catalyst for the continued evolution of the human species."Link (Thanks, Birdman!)
David Pescovitz is Boing Boing's co-editor/managing partner. He's also a research director at Institute for the Future. On Instagram, he's @pesco.
