Most of us have fantasized about sticking it to the boss, but the ladies in 9 to 5 actually went and did it. The 1980 comedy follows three secretaries at a large corporation who are fed up with their sexist, lying, idea-thieving boss. They fantasize about poisoning his coffee, threaten to turn him from "a rooster to a hen with one shot," and eventually kidnap him to run the office themselves. It's intentionally campy, hysterical, and regarded by many as a classic. It made the American Film Institute's list of the 100 funniest movies, and helped launch Dolly Parton to mainstream appeal. 9 to 5 is presented tonight by San Francisco's favorite drag star, Peaches Christ. Also on the program is a pre-show presentation of Work!, which features Christ with fellow drag performers Heklina and Pandora Boxx in a live parody of the film. Warning: Don't try this at work.

  • 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.'"
