Genre-Bender

Peaches has made a career out of fucking with genre and with gender for more than 10 years now. She does cock-rock as easily as electro-pop, and she’s been known to rock a pretty impressive cock or two as part of her stage costumes. Her new concert film, Peaches Does Herself, combines a retrospective of her music with a fake autobiogra-phy. Fake or not, it’s impressive whenever someone decides to portray his and/or her own life with the help of “The Fatherfucker Dancers,” not to mention the fabulous trans-gender porn star Danni Daniels strutting her stuff (all of it) as the love interest of the fictional Peaches. This may be the queerest rock opera to hit stage or screen in years, if not ever. You have two chances to catch it during the San Francisco International Film Festival this weekend, as well as the real Peaches, performing live at Mezzanine.

  • 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.'"
