The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence lived up to the extravagance of their name last weekend at the third annual Project Nunway, a decadent fashion show thrown to raise money for the order's community outreach projects. Local designers teamed up with sisters to design their 2012-inspired ensembles, crafted from recycled materials. The nuns strutted in two runway shows, punctuated by an endearing rendition of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by transgender performer Cassandra Cass.

As a lover of all things "end times," I was smitten with the show. Click through to check out some of the most outstanding looks of the apocalyptic evening.

Sister Pat N' Leather co-hosted the evening with drag performer Monistat, and she upstaged some of the runway looks with her own handcrafted ensembles. This death metal witch-princess getup was my favorite of her outfits; it's easy to imagine her as the ringmaster of the 2012 circus.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
