Bringing together her love of drag and her love of The Cure, chanteuse, superfan and faux queen trixxie carr pays tribute to her all time favourite band and “the best album ever”, to quote South Park and most death rock damaged teens of the time, by covering the entire album “Disintegration” with a LIVE BAND and plenty of drag antics! Darling of the SF subculture and frontierwoman of the movement to free the art of drag from traditional gender roles, trixxie carr has performed regularly on the stages of Trannyshack, MOTHER, The SF Album Project, and countless other drag events as well as arts festivals, museums and street fairs, and is one of the few lip sync artists who can also belt out a tune! After finishing her one-woman glam rock opera, 'Salome, Dance for Me', she is ready to take the reigns again with her third cabaret tribute at OASIS, bringing back a live band and her particular take on this epic album. trixxie just so happens to be a gigantic swooning dork for The Cure, whose 17 albums (at the time) she would carry around (in cassette form) so that she could listen to them on her walkman as a teenager. Only now is it finally time for this one woman explosion to integrate and mutate her favourite art forms and works into singularities of aural and visual awesomeness. Swinging wildly between high art and base camp, trixxie will surely bring out her big guns for this show: expect high heels, hilarious hi-jinx, deep philosophical contextualization and musical highlights from one of the best bands of all time presented by one of San Francisco's most unique performers – did you know she even plays guitar? (A twelve string of course, because...well, Robert Smith).

  • 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.'"
