Carnival of Bad Taste 

Wednesday, Apr 13 2011
Peaches Christ doesn’t show movies — she stages events. Peaches is the longtime force behind Midnight Mass and director of last year’s horror comedy All About Evil. Her spring salute to taboo-smashing local filmmakers, the San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival, is packed with stimulation, titillation, and naughty laughs. Follow the klieg lights to the late-night world premiere of Devious, Inc., xuxE’s kinky S.F.-shot feature set in the flashy, trashy world of fetish escorts, replete with musical numbers and (we’re just guessing) a happy ending. The preshow festivities include a fetish costume contest. The festival begins with Peaches and Sam Sharkey warming up the crowd with a rock set, followed by a butt-cheek-challenging program of 20 (!) short films including Sinking State, a collaboration between Frazer Bradshaw and Beth Lisick (Everything Strange and New). Put it this way: If anyone can get away with calling a shorts program and a feature a “festival,” it’s Peaches Christ.

  • 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.'"
