Pleasures of the Flesh 

Wednesday, Jun 12 2013

Transgender choreographer Sean Dorsey, feted earlier this year for the return of his award-winning program Secret History of Love, and whose leaping figure now adorns Market Street bus shelters, shares the love with other out-and-proud ensembles and solo artists in the 12th annual Fresh Meat Festival of Transgender and Queer Performance. Featuring 10 acts by LGBT performers, including hip-hop choreographer Allan Frias' Mind Over Matter and the variously abled dancers of AXIS Dance Company (both of So You Think You Can Dance fame), as well as Appalachian cloggers, taiko drummers, bomba dancers, humorists, musicians, poets, and Dorsey's own modern dance company, the Fresh Meat Festival bends genres and genders in a highly anticipated, packed evening. Each night finishes with an after-party with DJ Miz Rowdy, dancing, drinking, and a photobooth. Come to watch, stay to be seen.

June 20-22, 8 p.m., 2013

  • 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.'"
