Video of the Day: See Patrick Swayze in All his Feathered, Mulleted Glory

Nobody puts Swayze in the corner!

Watching and mocking terrible films is something of a San Francisco pastime. The Dark Room in the Mission has its Sunday Bad Movie Night tradition (this month's theme is "Bored of the Rings"). Clay Theater in Pacific Heights hosts a weekly screening of The Room. The Castro takes its mocking to epic proportions with events like Peaches Christ's Showgirls extravaganza (buying a large popcorn gets you a free lap dance, often from a masked or hooded character!). Now a new player is getting in on the action. SOMA B.A.G. (Bad Art Gallery), launched by SF IndieFest, is a gallery, screening room, and performance venue located in the mid-Market area that's home to "bad movies" of a different variety (ahem, Market Street Cinema Strip Club). SOMA B.A.G. kicks off its Bad Movie Playhouse with a Patrick Swayze theme.

Tonight you can view the terrible/awesome Road House, involving Swayze as a badass bouncer trying to tame a rough bar. Memorable lines include: "Pain don't hurt" and "That gal has got entirely too many brains to have an ass like that." Booze is on hand to dull the non-hurtful pain of the film, and while you're at it, sample some of the terrible/awesome art on display, salvaged from thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales. Our fave is "Crafter's Outlet Anyone Can Paint #28," made during the "controversial Paint By Numbers period" of the '80s and '90s, involving a raccoon "caught in the act of posing for a painting." If you can't make tonight, carry a watermelon to Dirty Dancing, which screens Sept. 26. Road House starts Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. at Satellite 66, 66 Sixth St. (at Jessie), S.F. Admission is free (but donations are appreciated).

  • 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.'"
