Billing itself as the longest-running drag show in the Castro, The Monster Show may also be thought of as the drag show at the center of the gay universe, because if 18th and Castro isn't that address, what is? Hostess Cookie Dough is a born-and-bred San Franciscan, too, so there's something very genuine about the whole event. Realer than real, one might say. Some of the city's finest performers appear onstage to lip-synch, show off elaborate costumes, and, on occasion, actually sing. This evening's theme is Disco Heat, so expect afros and tight bell-bottom jumpsuits. DJ MC2 mixes the all-important beats for queens and subjects alike -- we're calling for Donna Summer and a 60 percent chance of Bee Gees. All are welcome who appreciate gratuitous blue eyeshadow and Star Wars-theme dance remixes.

  • 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.'"
