How To Wreck A Nice Beach :: The Bay Tour

The mothership is landing…

–> Flyer for Bay events

–> How To Wreck A Nice Website

If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for this book since you first heard rap music when you were a shorty. It is true that I once called him the best hip-hop writer ever born–all respect due to Greg Tate and the rest of my writing gods and goddesses in the starry pantheon, this wild-eyed child Dave was born to write hip-hop–and this is why. Not to mention that Stop Smiling has done up the text in a sumptuously illustrated fashion.

Come hear the man-machine himself speak this week in the Bay at La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley, rock out at not just one but two special club nights of computer love dedicated to Mr. Tompkins and his wacky affection-object, and check his website for his ongoing appearances across the country.
