Get It While You Can 

Wednesday, May 21 2008
So, the rumors are true: Trannyshack is leaving us. An ominous note on the drag show's Web site reminds us "There are now 12 Trannyshacks left." We thought it was a publicity stunt at first too, but no. It's horribly real. The long-running show, famous for dragging drag into the 21st century with creativity, youthiness, and a weirdly egalitarian spirit is dying. Tonight the revue features a live performance by Los Angeles chanteuse Lady GaGa, who embodies the fashion-forward, glamorous rock monster vibe that's such a big part of the shack. Obviously, you should start planning an outfit asap. Heklina and the usual gang are expected to hot-tranny-mess it up too, of course, tonight and on all the remaining Tuesdays; upcoming themes include "Addicted to Porn" and a Stevie Nicks tribute night.

  • 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.'"
