High Heels Become a Major Issue 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009
If you have an inner (or outer) gay man, you may think this is funny: A YouTube commenter says of "Gay Argentinean Tango Augusto and Miguel," an adorable clip of two guys going at it, not unskillfully, "espero que Dios los perdone, no por lo gay sino por la mierda de tango que bailan." ("I hope God forgives them, not for being gay, but for the shitty tango they're dancing.") The International QueerTango Festival is far more nurturing to dancers, and features a slate of events to delight queer enthusiasts of the world's sexiest dance: a play about people who tango too much, called Tango House, milonga dance parties, a tango documentary, tango classes, an academic talk about queer tango (gender role mayhem!), and more milongas. And, we hope, a hive of beeotchy boys who either talk shit all over your style if you're a beginner or try to kill you with their eyes if you're better than they are.

  • 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.'"
