Watch Young Frankenstein and Craft Drunk with the Gang at Retro Fit

Posted By on Wed, May 25, 2011 at 3:06 PM

Don't think too much, just clear your schedule: Our Tuck of the Town drag-scene columnist Steven LeMay hosts a drunken craft night/screening of Young Frankenstein in his vintage clothing/faux hair/custom t-shirt shop, Retro Fit, tomorrow.

Stop trying to do all the mental-cultural math that would make sense of the above statement! Because there's still more to this tangled skein of an evening: An entity called Princess Animal which claims to be part monkey is celebrating something at this event, we can't quite figure out what. Something to do with yarn. But as part of the atmosphere-building that Princess Animals are apparently so good at, bubblegum-infused vodka Jell-o shots, lookin' like brains, are on hand.

Or as Madeline Kahn's Bride of F would sing, "Oh, sweet mystery of life, at last I've found you!"

Looks like you're trying to make sense of things again. And all we can tell you is "Poot! Ze candle! Beck!"

  • 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.'"
