Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony SocietyThe Castro Theatre (429 Castro Street, San Francisco, CA) Map it $20
San Francisco's culture-jamming subversives the Cacophony Society have almost 30 years of baffling, laughing at, and sometimes pissing (the right) people off under their belt. Founded in 1986 from the remnants of the Suicide Club, an earlier Bay Area secret society, the Cacophony Club was an instrumental force in the '80s and '90s underground art scene, helping to found the now obligatory Burning Man festival as well as organizing Dada-ist flash mobs, public installations, and pranks. The (unofficial) publishing party for Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society, a history of sorts on the organization, will be hosted by Church of the Sub-Genius' Ivan Stang and features the Yes Men, Improv Everywhere's Charlie Todd, and Reason magazine's Brian Doherty, among others.
