King Dork Approximately 

When: Sun., Dec. 7, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $TBA
As the release event for a young adult novel written by a reformed rock bandleader, the launch for Mr. T Experience frontman Frank Portman’s King Dork Approximately promises to be fittingly freewheeling and eclectic. At 1-2-3-4 Go! Records (420 40th St., Oakland) on Sunday, Christopher Appelgren, the longtime operator of Lookout! Records, will play host, while Litquake cofounder and Gimme Something Better co-author Jack Boulware — along with Bucky Sinister and Karen Finlay — will perform “dramatic readings,” which will likely entail more than affected hand gestures. Chuck Prophet — the longtime San Franciscan who, in 2012, released a fantastic suite of locally themed songs on Temple Beautiful, followed up this year by Night Surfer — is one of several esteemed musical performers on the bill. Portman, of course, will appear, guitar in hand as his alter-ego Dr. Frank. Never mind his medical credentials, Portman treats all ailments, and King Dork Approximately is frankly a perfect prescription. — Sam
