Free to the public. John Law, Carrie Galbrath, and Kevin Evans read from and speak about their book Tales of Cacophony (http://talesofsfcacophony.com/). This event will kick off ArtcarFest (http://artcarfest.com/) in Sacramento.
Ever wonder how Chuck Palahniuk came up with the idea for Fight Club’s secret society of recreational fighters? Or how a giant wooden “man” ended up on fire, inspiring one of the world’s most radical gatherings? Welcome to the Cacophony Society, an underground group of pranksters whose culture-jamming antics have shaped the contemporary zeitgeist for the past three decades. Now, from Flash Mobs and SantaCon to groups like Improv Everywhere and the Yes Men, new generations of instigators are taking a page out of the Cacophony book, driving pranks and events with social media tools.
