Right now, San Francisco's Contemporary Jewish Museum is exhibiting "Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg," an intimate portrait of the Beat generation in the form of Ginsberg's snapshots, hand-annotated years later. On Thursday, August 8, Boing Boing is presenting a panel at the museum about the Beats' Influence On Underground Publishing. I'm honored to have the opportunity to interview live on stage several icons of San Francisco's counterculture press who had a huge influence on my life and career:
* V. Vale, founder of Search & Destroy and RE/Search (check out their new site!)
* RU Sirius, founder of Mondo 2000, High Frontiers, and Reality Hackers
* Ron Turner, founder of Last Gasp Books
* Layla Gibbon, editor of Maximum Rocknroll
The panel is 6:30pm - 8pm and free with museum admission. Hope to see you there!
