"We've all done some fucked-up shit," says Dixie De La Tour: going home with the wrong person, getting in over our heads in a BDSM scenario, sitting through that timeless, endless feature Nightmare Date II: The Boundary-Free Zone. We've all also been blown away by indoor fireworks -- using muscles we didn't know we had, discovering mysterious bruises, and waking up too stunned to do anything but whisper "God almighty" to the hottie (or hotties) next to us.

Good or bad, these experiences can make for great stories, says De La Tour, hostess of Bawdy Storytelling, the next installment of which happens Wednesday at the Blue Macaw. Several years ago De La Tour began organizing small groups of like-minded friends (okay, pervs) to share their tales of debauchery. These lusty confessionals became such a hit that she took them public, adding themes -- such as this round's "Candy from Strangers" -- and featuring different speakers.

Although some well-known names in San Francisco's alt-sex intelligentsia have spilled their secrets on her stage, De La Tour makes it her mission to get new people under the lights. She says the best stories can come from people who'd never thought of performing in such a venue. Often, hearing other people's stories makes audience members realize they have something they want to tell -- and a willing accomplice in Miss Dixie.

The theme for Wednesday covers anonymous sex. "No witness, no baggage, no crime," says De La Tour.

Bawdy Storytelling starts at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14 (and continues every second Wednesday), at the Blue Macaw, 2565 Mission (at 22nd St.), S.F. Admission is $10.

  • 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.'"
