Monday Morning Hangover: Mardi Gras, Goths, and Bondage

Posted By on Mon, Feb 8, 2010 at 11:45 AM

It didn't rain this weekend. Well, not really. There was a torrential downpour Saturday night, and while most kids were tucked in their beds, the streets, as cold as they were, were crowded with people primed to party as a respite from ghastly weather.

Cafe Van Clef got into the spirit, throwing an early Mardi Gras party. Brass music and shimmying were the order of the day, and patrons threw back a few (or more), getting pumped to cheer on the Saints at Sunday's Superbowl. Check out shots of the to-do in Calibree Photography's Mardi Gras @ Cafe Vane Cleef.

Things were a bit less sunny, but no less sultry at the DNA Lounge, where striped stockings, top hats, and crinoline were donned for the Swing Goth's Wonderland: A Tim Burton Ball. Lovely shots of the dark dance in Richard Haick's  Swing Goth's Wonderland: A Tim Burton Ball.

The futuristic interior of the Supperclub played host to some guests who had been very bad and deserved to be spanked at their Bondage Night. View shots of the spectacle in Hanna Quevedo's Bondage Night at Supperclub SF.

  • 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.'"
