Here in the Bay Area, we aren't lacking for opportunities to watch the wildly popular cult musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show -- there's a screening pretty much every week. That's why drag superstar and longtime fan Joshua Grannell, aka Peaches Christ, wanted to do something different. "Rocky Horror truly saved my life," says Grannell. "Back in the '80s when I first discovered it, as little closeted queen, it was my 'it gets better' video."
Grannell is teaming up with original cast member Magenta, Patricia Quinn, (whose iconic lips have graced movie posters everywhere) for a live concert of all the Rocky Horror songs. In addition to the campy musical numbers, which are backed by a live band, The Rocky Horror Show 40th Anniversary Concert Tribute with Patricia Quinn features The X-Factor's Jason Brock as Frank-N-Furter, local dragsters Trixxie Carr, L Ron Hubby, and Dulce De Leche, and an onstage interview with Quinn in the informal and hilarious style known and loved by Peaches Christ fans. Be sure to come early for libations and the costume contest.
The Rocky Horror Show 40th Anniversary Concert Tribute starts Sunday May 12 at 8 p.m. (also May 11) at The Victoria Theatre, 2961 16th St., S.F. Admission is $30-$35; visit peacheschrist.com.
