Black Christmas 

Wednesday, Dec 1 2010
‘Tis the season, we’re reminded ad nauseam, for peace and good will toward all men (and, we assume, all others as well). Fine. But something’s missing, don’t you think? Where’s the indiscreet, hot-under-the-collar, and wet-under-the-waistband lust? Shouldn't that be an integral part of the holiday spirit? Fuck yeah (to cite the new and wholly appropriate city motto). You’ll find it in spades at Noël Noir, a music, film, and fashion-filled bash and benefit conveniently duded up as a pickup scene. A gay thread runs through the evening, and not just because the Nunway Noir couture show features the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Killer sets by local heroes Jill Tracy, ejector, Sonny and the Sunsets, and Hottub offer ample opportunity to move, groove and check out the boys. If somehow you still aren't in the mood, slip into "Luminous Darkness," a program of aggressively over-the-line queer shorts by the likes of Gio Black Peter and Bruce LaBruce, followed by a steamy surprise midnight movie. The setting calls for your sexiest holiday garb. Or you could just, um, come as you are.

  • 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.'"
