Beth Lisick, Frazer Bradshaw Collaboration Featured at S.F. Underground Short Film Festival

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Peaches Christ doesn't show movies -- she stages events. Peaches is the longtime force behind Midnight Mass and director of last year's horror comedy All About Evil. Her spring salute to taboo-smashing local filmmakers, the San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival, is tonight at the Victoria Theatre. It's packed with stimulation, titillation, and naughty laughs. Among the films is Everything Strange and New, a collaboration between Frazer Bradshaw and Beth Lisick, a trailer for which is in the clip above.

Follow the klieg lights to the late-night world premiere of Devious, Inc., xuxE's kinky S.F.-shot feature set in the flashy, trashy world of fetish escorts, replete with musical numbers and (we're just guessing) a happy ending. The preshow festivities include a fetish costume contest. The festival begins with Peaches and Sam Sharkey warming up the crowd with a rock set, followed by a butt-cheek-challenging program of 20 (!) short films. Put it this way: If anyone can get away with calling a shorts program and a feature a "festival," it's Peaches Christ.

The San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Victoria Theatre. Admission is $15-$20.

  • 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.'"
