John Law: Scaling Big BridgesG&S loft (Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY 11217) Map it $10
Co-founder of the Cacophony Society and member of the Suicide Club, John Law is a living legend in the fringe culture movement. But in addition to his prankster pursuits, he's also an aficionado of bridges. Whenever he finds himself near one, he's feels compelled to climb it; and waiting around for permission isn’t really his bag. For many of his scalings, he's brought his camera along to capture the views and the glorious trestles. Tonight, Law discusses his bridge obsession, presents his photographs, and recounts some his more harrowing tales. He is likely to also throw in some mentions of his collection of short stories, "The Space Between," and share some anecdotes from his newest book, "Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society." It should be an equally amusing and awe-inspiring evening.
