Performance Review

Blood Bath

Dracula at the Tricklock Performance Space

As might be expected, a black coffin stretches across the middle of the room. As might not be expected, an attendant darts around the theater right before the show warning everyone in the front row that they'll probably get doused with blood. "Don't worry, though," she says. "It washes out." This is supposed to comfort us?

Beat Thing

Outpost Performance Space

David Meltzer fell in with the Beats at the very beginning of the movement, reading his poetry in clubs and coffee houses in the late '50s in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. In Beat Thing, released this year by Albuquerque's La Alameda Press, he reflects on the accomplishments of his generation and the commodification of all things Beat. Meltzer will read from this far ranging poem on Thursday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m., at the Outpost, accompanied by bassist David Parlato. $5 suggested donation. Students free. 268-0044.

Book Review


Nicholson Baker's Checkpoint


Checkpoint has received a lot of press over the last couple months, mainly because it revolves around a gimmick that will probably prove lucrative for its opportunistic author this election year. Nicholson Baker's thin new novel revolves around one man's ridiculous plan to assassinate George W. Bush.

Not Your Grandma's Guide to Sex

Em and Lo's Nerve's Guide to Sex Etiquette

Nerve's Guide to Sex Etiquette

Em and Lo, youngish femme fatale advice columnists, offer the reader a book that starts off like June Cleaver's guide to sex etiquette then slowly progresses to the type of sex guide that would make even Howard Stern blush. In between, they cover every little intimate detail from the "art of the pickup" to first dates, kisses and very explicit sexual encounters, some of which are too risqué even for the Alibi. Well, all right, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I'll refrain from describing them anyway.

Speed Reader

To the Stars

He might be the inventor of one of the world's lamest pseudo-religions, Scientology, but at least L. Ron Hubbard can boast that he created some of the finest sci-fi of the 20th century. Aficionados claim that To the Stars—which was originally published in 1950 in the pulp zine Astounding Science Fiction and has just been released for the first time in book form—is one of Hubbard's best.
