Tuesday's Pick: Les Folies Champagne at Bubble Lounge

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 8:00 AM

Weimar, Weimar, Weimar. From where we sit, we see a lot of artists fixated on the shadowy, sexualized drama of Berlin nightlife immediately pre-Nazi control. It's a powerful aesthetic, as fictionalized by the deathless film Cabaret and as represented elsewhere in drool-inducing pieces of art from that era, from jewelry to pornography. It was a gay old time, full of debauchery and drag queens, and that is why SF Boylesque, a very pretty all-boy burlesque troupe, hews to its ways. At Les Folies Champagne, MC Jason Brock and DJ Lindon join the boys in entertaining you, and each bit is (prepare yourself) paired with a glass of champagne. One more time: 1930s-style gay man cabaret dance troupe with champagne pairings. It's mind-blowingly delicious and decadent.

  • 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.'"
