Gathered Together 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2014

Years ago, queer porn icon Courtney Trouble decided to throw a rager in her backyard, complete with DJs, dancing, Jello shots, and a baby pool full of glitter. When El Rio caught wind of what sounded like the ultimate Pride event, the bar offered to host the party the following year. And the year after that. And the year after that. In its sixth year, Queerly Beloved has become not only El Rio's official Pride party, but the S.F. party of the year — a place for riot grrls, queens, porn stars, and all sorts of folks in between. This year, local hip-hop star Micahtron headlines, followed by a dance set from smoking-hot femme DJ Jenna Riot. Not a dancer? Great; you'll be first in line to collect your smooch (or spanking) from the Cum and Glitter Kinky Cafe and Kissing Booth. Oh, and two words that make Queerly Beloved even better? Free. Pizza.

  • 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.'"
