Dragging the Truth Out of You 

Wednesday, Nov 10 2010
Citizens from "red" states say they're against San Francisco values, but we've seen them wriggling with adoration at Fauxgirls! — and Fauxgirls! is not a delicate show. It's wonderful and funny and the gowns are very pretty, but the performers aren't playing. The visitors in question, a whole family of them in their baseball hats, proudly and repeatedly asserting they were from Kentucky or Kansas or something, learned at the same time we did that "hooker" is a term of endearment. And they loved it. Victoria Secret, an accomplished drag personage, leads a cast of sparkling female impersonators (and Bobby, the token butch) in a show involving synching, singing, audience participation, generous tipping, and getting called "hooker."

  • 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.'"
