12/02/06: Dirk Dirksen Memorial Today
Dirk Dirksen, legendary San Francisco promoter and force of nature, passed away Monday night, November 20th, 2006. All of us here at Alternative Tentacles are extremely grateful that we were able to work with him and- in Jello's case- play many shows for him at the Mabuhay. Our condolences to his family and friends.
A public memorial will be held this Saturday:
Who said an anti-corporate film festival has to be serious, preachy, or (dare we say) boring? Well, it sure wasn't the folks organizing the CounterCorp Festival, which launches its inaugural year with a series of movies chock full of action, intrigue, activism, crime (real and alleged), violence, and yes, even humor.
Check out their website for ticket and show time information. Among the festival's flicks, there's "The Forest for the Trees," "PIRATE RADIO USA," "Alternative Freedom," "SEVERANCE," and "THE FUTURE OF FOOD"!
To celebrate our return to internet world, we\\\'re taking $2 off of everything Alternative Tentacles released this year! From Jello Biafra to 16 Horsepower to Nardwuar to I Object to Nausea to Michael Parenti to Akimbo to The Subhumans to Disaster Strikes and on and on, until the break of dawn... Dawn, that is, of Monday December 4th 2006!
Order on-line by then, or have your postal mail order postmarked by 12/4/06 and you will be eligible for these prices!

However, the huge influx of orders has slowed our shipping time from 2 days turnaround to as long as 2 weeks turnaround. Please be patient!
We're really happy for your orders, but there's only one of us who's able to pack orders (us being a tiny record company). Thanks and please give us a few extra days to pack and ship your order right now. Rock on!Jesse/AT Mail Male

"The artist, Gene Ha and I grew up in South Bend, Indiana and spent our high school years in a basement, dilligently playing D&D and honing our art drawing everybody's characters. These were good times, I was surrounded by smart, funny, creative people. Sadly, one of these basement denizens, our good friend and talented artist Barry Winston passed away suddenly this last year. Beyond losing a great talent at such a young age, Barry left behind a beautiful daughter, Brianna. Barry's friends have set up a college fund for Brianna, and to do our part to honor Barry's memory, we are auctioning off Gene's original album cover artwork. Gene has set up an eBay auction!
Not only do you get the original art pieces, you'll get the CD and LP versions of the album (autographed), and if you want, we'll even throw in an autographed tie! Please write us at our My Space page with any questions.
Don't be stingy with the bids, let's give Brianna a good nest egg for her future. I think i'm gonna bid on this myself!Prof. Jake Stratton, BloodHag"
