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:

12/01/06: Anti-Corporate Film Festival Starts Now!
The 2006 Anti-Corporate Film Festival runs from tonight, December 1st, through Sunday December 3rd at the Victoria Theatre, 2961 16th Street (at Mission Street, across from BART), San Francisco, CA.

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"!

10/27/06: Mail Orders Aging like Fine Wine!
As many of you know from your own orders, a lot of fab folks are ordering the awesome new Jello Biafra spoken word cd. Thanks a ton, this is great!

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!

09/14/06: BloodHag art charity auction!
That's right, you can act now and win the awesome cover art of BloodHag's new AT record "Hell Bent for Letters"! The Professor writes:

"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"
