|OCT.22 JOHN LAW's HISTORY OF PRANKS + YES MEN +|
Thee pre-eminent raconteur on all things Trickster, John Law (AKA Jack Napier) instigates a laff-riot of public put-ons and sub-cult capers that carries on the momentum from the recent Joey Skaggs biopic. In fact, a couple of classic Skaggs gags are in John's video mix tonight, but not before the spoofing scene is set with nods to Duchamp/Dada, the Situationists, the Diggers, the Yippies, Alan Abel, et al. In SF, pranksters were certainly set free with the infamous Suicide Club and its more broad-based offspring, the Cacophony Society-in fact the subject of John's book and the inspiration for Fight Club! ALSO: John's own gang the Billboard Liberation Front, Agent Apple the pie-throwing Avenger, the Guerrilla Girls, Gay Shame, SubGenius, Militant Librarians, Banksy, Barbie Liberation Organization, Yes Men, and culture-jammers galore...even streakers! PLUS our bank-robbing film-maker Joe Gibbons!! *$7.77
