It’s Raining Amens 

Wednesday, Aug 6 2008
As all good fetishists know, God and the erotic are two great tastes that taste great together. There’s an especially sweet place in heaven, however, for those who grow up Roman Catholic and queer. In their anthology Queer and Catholic, editors Arnie Evans and Trebor Healey gather a flock of stories from former altar boys, Pope devotees, and rosary wringers who either fled from or eroticized their faith. The results, less interested in dogma than experience, range from droll to poignant. Where else could one read about how one writer “hoped to be the first female pope, until I found out there already was one?” Contributors reading include Susan Leonardi, Ed Wolf, Nora Nugent, Kevin Killian, Sister Merry Peter, and Sister Bambi of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

  • 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.'"
