Fun Naked People 

Wednesday, Dec 5 2007
Holiday parties are rather predictable -- a little mistletoe here, an indiscreet coworker there, and some strong libations to stave off the season's ennui. If you're itching to celebrate in a different way -- and maybe even do a little unconventional Christmas shopping while you're at it -- skip the office gala altogether and head out to Nude Aid. Put on by the Center for Sex and Culture, the benefit is a self-professed "erotic art making and giveaway event" in which artists and photographers open up their creative process to the public, with a little help from models posing nearly nude or in their kinkiest get-up. Produced by burlesque queen Lady Monster and sexologist Carol Queen, it's the Center's most talked-about event. Last year, spectators witnessed luminaries like Leonard Nimoy, whose most recent claim to fame is snapshots of Reubenesque women in the buff, and post-porn modernist Annie Sprinkle getting their creative groove on. And aside from admiring all the nubile eye candy, party-goers can take home the pieces they inspire -- a piece of art is included in the price admission. Erotic starlets Nina Hartley and Sharon Mitchell host the festivities.

  • 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.'"
