Drag Races at "Club Faith"

Wednesday, Jul 5 2000
Before those pride weekend memories have had a chance to fade, "Club Faith" is gearing up for Drag Races, San Francisco-style. The premise is charmingly simple, and has that right-now interactive hook that's sucked us all screaming back into game show land: Pull five well-proportioned volunteers from the audience, strip them down to their skivvies, then give 'em 15 minutes to put on makeup, choose their wardrobes, and perform their drag numbers. The queen of the night is chosen by the roar of the crowd and awarded 100 smackers, plus, of course, the adoration that is only her just due, which has got to be at least as good as it gets for royals anywhere these days.

The lovely Crys-T La Scivious does the honors, assisted by sidekicks Kitty Kunt and Miss HollyGram providing wacky hijinks and entertainment throughout. Monthly resident DJ Phil B ("Mass," "Metropolis") soundtracks the goings-on, and "Club Faith"'s 18-plus policy ensures that everything stays (barely) legal. Don't forget to buckle up.

  • 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.'"
