Co-editor and Author, "Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society"
The Cacophony Society had a direct hand in the genesis of much that we know of as alternative culture. Come and see why and how. Written and edited by Cacophonists Carrie Galbraith, Kevin Evans and John Law, "Tales of the San Francisco Cacophony Society" is the missing link of alternative culture, the prankster bridge between the cut and paste Kinkos anarchy of the 80's and the instantaneous flash mob, social media cultural assaults on tedium and conformity of the new millennium. With a Q&A by David Pescovitz of Boing Boing.
Carrie Galbraith is co-author of Tales of the Cacaphony Society. As a Cacophony Society member, she edited the Rough Draft and created several seminal events, including the Atomic Café and the Zone Trip Concept.
