Bend Your Gender 

Wednesday, Oct 29 2008
So much to love, as usual, at Tranny Fest, and so much to remind us of the enduring spirit of the young David Bowie. This year's "transgender/transgenre" screenings and performances unsurprisingly feature plenty of pokes at matrimony, it being the Year of Gay Marriage, such as Michael V. Smith's The Near-Perfect Wedding and Ann Von Hageman's Michelle's First Wedding in a Dress. Also, the fest offers hot tranny skin flicks, like Couch Surfers from Trannywood Pictures, with its FTM cuties. Fuzzy! But our pick is Julie Saragosa's The Outsiders, a Super 8 homage to Coppola's so-perfect evocation of how it feels to feel very sexy about feeling very lonely. "Boys" in leather jackets: That's a yes. The keynote speech is given by Annie Danger, and includes video of Erica L. Brown PhD., Psy.D who does work on "transsexual phenomena."

Tranny Fest starts tonight at 8 p.m. with "Pocket Rockets."

  • 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.'"
