Donating Your Eggs — But Not for Children 

Wednesday, Apr 20 2011
We’re still mad about the recent kerfuffle about whether kids should go on field trips to the Castro. They might see “windows that display things that well I just don’t need more questions about!” kerfuffed one parent. Uh, yes, lady, we think you do. But the point is, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s drag-nun Easter in the Park parties always include kids’ activities such as face-painting (good face-painting, for once, right? Kids know the difference.) and egg hunting. After those are finished, attendees are invited to take their kids home or elsewhere, because that makes sense. And that’s how we do family values, rest of country: logically, not superstitiously. The Easter Bonnet Contest, innocent as it may sound, and the Hunky Jesus Contest are neither appropriate for nor interesting to children, so there you go. The pageantry is awesome for grown-ups, though: Hunky Jesus always riles the uptight, and the Bonnets are magnificent and sometimes kinky. Kids would probably also be bored by the sight of Sisters giving away thousands of dollars in grant money to organizations doing good works, but you might not. This year has a hippie theme, leading to puns such as “Old Habits Dye Hard.”

  • 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.'"
