Dragging It Out 

Wednesday, Sep 10 2008
Filmmaker Tore Dahlin says he " ... wanted to make a movie as diverse as California." That's a damn tall order, but the result, Corky's Hot Ice, looks like it may actually have succeeded: Filipino goofballs, an Israeli Eurovision Song Contest winner, the town of Guerneville, a drag performer named Fierce Flava, assorted cops, and a diamond necklace are all featured. The plot concerns the necklace (stolen) and the people who want to find it (diverse); comedy ensues. Big dance numbers by the performers of Asia SF fit in there somewhere, and our favorite local drag performer, Steven LeMay, plays the titular criminal, Corky Hotpoint.

  • 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.'"
