Prim, Proper, and Totally Perverted 

Wednesday, Sep 17 2008
The Folsom Street Fair is a chance to air your fetishes, but not everyone gets off on leather chaps and butt plugs. For those whose secret thrill involves prim librarians in high-buttoned blouses and aristocratic types in fussy cravats, there’s Perverted Prudes. A sort of flash mob without the, um, flash, Perverted Prudes encourages the sartorially straitlaced to descend on the street fair’s booths and shop for sex toys while “dressed as inappropriately squeaky clean folks.” Suggested role models include Ned Flanders, first ladies, nuns, and the queen of England. Just because you’re buttoned-up, however, doesn’t mean you can’t work out the kinks, if you know what we’re saying. Ahem! At any rate, “Don’t come if you don’t have a genuine appreciation for fetish culture,” Perverted Prudes cautions. And if you want to wear a butt plug under all that polyester, the queen need never know.

  • 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.'"
