Charlie Horse 

Wednesday, May 6 2009

So Polk Street is getting scrubbed? Not on Anna Conda's watch. The recently canonized "Protector of the Polk" keeps it raw and real at Charlie Horse, her weekly drag-show-cum-car-crash at the Cinch on Friday nights. If you like more than just a little grit with your glamour, sidle on in. Where else can you catch such acts as the inimitable Holy McGrail, the genre- and gender-defying Mutha Chucka, and the fiercest of the fierce, Monistat, in one night? DJs Bearzbub and DirtyKnees mix the B-52's instead of Beyoncé, Karen O but not J. Lo, and Iggy Pop over Lady Gaga.

  • 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.'"
