CLUB FOOT Presents: A Generous Illusion, Post-Punk SF (1978-82)

After new wave punk first hit North Beach in 1976 and before 80's hardcore took over The Vats, San Francisco's heaviest neighborhoods saw a brilliant flurry of Do-It-Yourself artist-run venues. Target Video, Tool & Die, Survival Research Labs in the Mission. Club Generic in the Tenderloin. CLUB FOOT in Dogpatch. To name just a few. This program presents films and performances from these often overlooked locations where rock aesthetics meet live art action.

Featuring Bruce Geduldig's beautiful black-and-white 8mm short, Childhood Prostitute, starring JoJo Planteen (Inflatable Boy Clams) and Winston Tong (Tuxedomoon). Includes music by Tuxedomoon, The Units, Pink Section, Minimal Man, Invertebrates, Factrix, Richard Kelly, and Snuky Tate (live at the 1979 Gay Freedom Day Parade).

Plus, special guest actor/musician Richard Edson, one of the original CLUB FOOT founders who later went on to a big time Hollywood career.

Thursday, July 29 at 6:00-7:30 PM at the Koret Auditorium, Lower Level, San Francisco Public Library. All programs at the Library are free and open to the public.
