Party for San Francisco's culture-jamming subversives, the Cacophony Society.

Picture?width=50&height=50 Tanja M. Laden

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. La Luz de Jesus / Wacko hosts the (unofficial) publishing party for a history of the organization and "Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society," with book readings from Carrie Galbraith; Burning Man founder John Law; contributor Silke Tudor; and Los Angeles Cacophony Society founder, Reverend Al Ridenour. There's also a performance by Art Of Bleeding; magician Christopher Wonder; and a special live performance by Rosemary's Billygoat.

After the La Luz event, head over to the Vista Theatre down the street to see the "transgressive cult documentary" INTO THE ZONE: The Story of the Cacophony Society (https://www.facebook.com/events/442007462562228/)
