Jacques Boyreaus 'Supertrash Peepshow' Offers the Low Life 

Wednesday, Oct 3 2007
Jacques Boyreau, along with every other collector of fringe, underground, or outsider art, finds the low life infinitely more interesting than the high life. A fervid proselytizer as much as a dedicated collector, Boyreau shared his personal stash in the lovingly illustrated 2002 book Trash: The Graphic Genius of Xploitation Movie Posters. And as one of the driving forces of the much-loved and much-missed local Werepad space, he turned on countless young innocents to the skuzzy pleasures of '70s exploitation flicks. Now churning up the placid Portland art scene, Boyreau returns to Sodom by the Bay with a slideshow preview of Supertrash, another savory sample of trashy oddities that hits bookshelves next year. On the unlikely chance that a Jacques Boyreau show-and-tell isn't sufficiently stimulating, tonight's "Supatrash Peepshow" program also includes Andy Milligan's grimy 1973 opus, Fleshpot on 42nd Street (aka The Girls on 42nd Street). A headlong dip in the deep end of the cesspool, this low-rent classic follows an endlessly scamming, scheming, and screwing heroine around New York City. The sordid saga of Dusty Cole can hardly be described as a female empowerment flick; after all, not everyone in the gutter is looking at the stars.

  • 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.'"
