Join us this Saturday for a presentation on John Law’s book “Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society”. John Law will be in attendance and will be available for signings.
“From Fight Club to Burning Man, Flash Mobs to Santarchy Cacophony influenced everything subversive, playful and anti-authoritarian in popular culture over the last 20 years – this is the great, untold story of the 1980s and ’90s. A template for pranksters, artists, adventurers and anyone interested in rampant creativity, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is the history of the most influential underground cabal you’ve never heard of. Rising from the ashes of the mysterious and legendary Suicide Club, The Cacophony Society, at its zenith, hosted chapters in over a dozen major cities, and influenced much of what was once called the underground. The Cacophony Society’s epic exploits radically changed the way people live and play in the world. The group inspired Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club and Burning Man and helped start pop culture trends including flash mobs, urban exploration, and culture jamming. A large-format, full-color, hardbound homage to this protean group, Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society is packed with original art, never before published photographs, original documents and incredulous news accounts. Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society Edited by Kevin Evans, Carrie Galbraith and John Law Foreword by Chuck Palhiniuk”
The Presentation will begin at 7pm on Saturday, September 7th, at Dogwood in Beacon N.Y.
