Love, Minneapolis Style 

Wednesday, Jun 30 2010
Peaches Christ always looks like Joan Crawford. Not too much; not in a tired or obvious way — it's mostly a thing that happens kind of around the eyes — and even when she's in drag/reverse drag as Prince, Peaches Christ still looks like Joan Crawford. It's super impressive. At Midnight Mass: Purple Rain, she hosts a dancing-in-the-aisles-encouraged screening of the '80s classic, as well as the event's famous preshow. Each preshow is different, and tonight's signature move is the '80s Slut Pageant, in which audience members strut the stage clad, hopefully, in polyester lace lingerie with horribly high-cut legs. A difficult "tuck" scenario, to be sure, but who can resist the fashion moment during which the more crucifixes you wore, the sluttier you looked? All this and the chance to bask in Morris Day and the Time.

  • 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.'"
