Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence Swear to God There Will Be a Second Coming of Hunky Jesus

In an upsetting turn of events this Easter, the Sisterhood's annual Hunky Jesus contest was cancelled, thanks to a holy (and long overdue) downpour.

Easter in San Francisco includes a contest with stripped-down savior impersonators strutting their beards and robes in Dolores Park following the Easter egg hunt and bonnet contest hosted by the order of queer nuns.

But this year, the sisters say, the sky burst open immediately after the bonnet contest and soggy mayhem ensued. The Hunky Jesus hopefuls were forced to hide their abs under raincoats, and the revelers headed home to sleep off their Easter buzz.

Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to Perform a Trash Exorcism on Dolores Park for Easter

This unfortunate turn of events has left San Francisco in a dire situation -- we now have no sexy savior to guide us through the remainder of 2013, and that can't be a good sign. Fortunately, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are always looking out for us, so they've promised to host a do-over later this month. Although no official date has been set yet, they've directed us to keep an eye on their website for updates.

In a press release, the Sisters also had some guiding wisdom for contestants: "Hunky Jesuses, rejoice! And keep your loin cloths and thorny crowns at the ready -- your moment in the spotlight will happen soon!"

While you anxiously await the Sisters' next proclamation, you can keep yourself occupied by browsing our slideshow of last year's Jesus wannabes. When the time comes to slip on your tunics and parade through Dolores Park, we'll be sure to let you know.

  • 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.'"
