My Superbearmodel, Jim Brashear, is performing tonight and tomorrow night at New College…

Jim Brashear in Bulfinch’s SMITHology (or, Reflecting Morrissey)
August 3 & 4 (Tues and Wed), 7PM
New College Theater, 777 Valencia (at 19th), San Francisco
$5-10 (sliding scale, no one refused)

also featuring a performance by Damon Smith: “This Little Dream of Mine”
part of the Experimental Performance Institute’s Faultline Festival, July 27-August 8

Whatever happened to The Boy with the Thorn in His Side? Besides his solo career… In a multimedia performance of song, poetry, movement, and video, Jim Brashear embraces, redresses, and violates the myth of Morrissey, refracting his misanthropy, self-loathing, and profound sentiment through the looking glass. Or something like that.

Jim Brashear combines his experiences in voice, poetry, and computers to create multimedia performance art. Since first opening his mouth in 1998, he has sung with Eliane Radigue, Eric Glick Rieman, Marco Eneidi, Coro Hispano, Blectum from Blechdom, and the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. In October 2000, he performed Difference Engine, a multimedia operetta on Alan Turing, at the Mills College Concert Hall. He has also read and performed at New Langton Arts, Intersection for the Arts, ODC Theater, 21 Grand, Tehama Alley, and the Berkeley Art Center. Along with Kathy Lou Schultz and Robin Tremblay-McGaw, he edits and publishes Lipstick Eleven, a literary journal of experimental writing and cultural criticism. His chapbook Zealander will be published by Duck Press in Fall 2004.
