Thank You For Being a Freak 

Wednesday, Dec 19 2007
As any homosexual with Lifetime and no life from 10 to 11 on an average weeknight knows, The Golden Girls possesses just the right blend of barbed wit, sex, bitchiness, and cowl neck sweaters to stand the test of time. It also stands the test of tranny translation to the stage, as evidenced by The Golden Girls: The Play. Who knew that local drag superstars Heklina, Cookie Dough, Matthew Martin, and Miss Trannyshack 2007 Pollo Del Mar could so perfectly embody Dorothy, Sophia, Blanche, and Rose? Okay, so everybody knew … but have you seen it? "You smoked? Rose! That's like finding out Lassie was an alcoholic!" "Lassie was an alcoholic?" The cast (including co-stars Mike Finn, Laurie Bushman, BeBe Sweetbriar, and Hilary Grove) returns this month with two live reenactments of the sizzling '80s sitcom, including a touching Christmas episode. And what better way to recognize the most sacred of Christian holidays than by letting yourself be touched by a tranny? Zing!

  • 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.'"
