So maybe Meryl Streep shouldn't lose sleep worrying that her performance in Julie & Julia is in danger of being eclipsed by an even more definitive Child. Still, when the S.F. Gay Men's Chorus hits the stage at the Castro Theater tonight for it's annual Home for the Holidays Christmas Eve concerts, they won't be without a certain husky-voiced food icon. Chorus executive director Teddy Witherington told SFoodie Julia debuted earlier this month at a concert in Modesto, for a bit during a song called "Fruitcake." "Julia makes a fruitcake in the course of the number," Witherington said, "adding ingredients including Mount Gay Rum." Sweet. And given the allegations that the real Julia wasn't exactly a fag hag, her Castro debut could be viewed as a taste of sweet justice.

There are three performances of Home for the Holidays tonight at the Castro (429 Castro at Market), at 5, 7, and 9 p.m. It's too late to get the $20-$30 tickets online; score 'em at the door.

  • 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.'"
