From the Savage Republic mailing list:
"As so many people will be traveling to San Francisco for the sold out Throbbing Gristle show on 23 April, we have decided to collaborate with some local promoters to put on the long awaited "How to Destroy the Universe - Part 6" festival. The festival will run 23-25 April in the San Francisco area.
The GOALS of this festival will be to bring together a symposium of like-minded artists to explore how Throbbing Gristle has influenced the current underground community, and to celebrate this diverse amorphous Industrial Culture, and to just throw an great fun wacko party! The theme is "Can the World be as Sad as it Seems?", taken from the famous Throbbing Gristle "Heathen Earth" DVD.
We are having an OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS (music, performance and visual arts) who would like to participate. Just reply to this email if you are interested with links to your work.
The general agenda so far (check the Mobilization.com or myspace.com/fspace sites for updates):
THUR 23 April - THROBBING GRISTLE "After Party" in San Francisco @ www.projectonesf.org 251 Rhode
The festival will kick off at this beautiful gallery/bar/dance space in San Francisco.

Ah, man, Donkey Daddy is dead, long live Donkey Daddy. I was really hoping to see Fluff Grrl many more times. I'll never forget when he lit his hair on fire and blew the ashes at PC the first time we saw Fluff Grrl at Destroy the Universe. And his off stage demeanor reminded me of our beloved Puree Tomatoes RIP, maybe with a little GG Allin thrown in.
