The Diary of Anne Frankenstein 

Wednesday, Oct 13 2010
An Internet commenter has described actor Natasha Lyonne's career: “She just needs a 21st century John Waters to adopt her as his totem.” Waters might not be thrilled about the cant of such a remark, nor women filmmakers, nor Lyonne, but it happened anyway, just as the wise Internet commenter said it would. Joshua Grannell, aka drag superstar Peaches Christ of the movie screening, late-night stage show, and underground celebrity appearance series Midnight Mass, nabbed Lyonne as the star of his first feature film, All About Evil. Is it campy? Is it gory? Is Dode from Brick in it? Is fucking Mink Stole, the John Waters star herself, in it? Is it a gloriously local production set at the Victoria Theatre, complete with San Francisco fashion icons as extras? Yes, chickens, yes! And at this screening, will Peaches and the Midnight Mass players appear live onstage to provide you with an experience they call "4-D"? Aren't you just dying to know? Come in costume, obviously.

  • 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.'"
