Monday Morning Hangover: Fighting and Loving

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 10:33 AM

Most weekend's in this city are all about love (or sex, at any rate) and this weekend was no exception, aside from the knock-down drag-out fights. Pro-Wrestling Revolution's Lucha Libre enthralled a crowd of about 200 people with a no-holds-barred spectacle of flying fists and spandex clad bodies. But all the brawling was for a good cause: the event was raising money for John O'Connell High School. Check out shots of the death-defying fights in Joe Schell's Lucha Libre Revolution.

Monday Morning Hangover: Beam Me Up Some Hair of the Dog

Posted By on Mon, Jan 25, 2010 at 11:54 AM

San Franciscan's love an excuse to get into costume, and this weekend was a bonanza for fantasy fans. This weekend the Star Trek Convention rolled into town and dedicated  fans of the show donned their best Bridge-worthy uniforms and Klingon foreheads. Fans were especially pumped for the captains of the Enterprise to meet on stage: William Shatner, who played Captain James T. Kirk on the original series came face to face with Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Check out pics of the  fandom here and read Anna McCarthy's play by play of the event here and here.

Monday Morning Hangover: Wet Weekend

Posted By on Mon, Jan 18, 2010 at 11:09 AM

Neither rain, nor...rain, could keep the lads from coming out in droves this weekend. Underground SF's party CockFight was jam-packed with cute boys, several of which obligingly took their shirts off. Check out shots of the mayhem here.

Meanwhile, at Tiara Sensation at the Stud, partiers were invited to make their own tiaras and join in the fabulousness transpiring on-stage. More very patriotic scenes here.

Monday Morning Hangover: XXX Expo, Sonic Youth, & Pantless Youth

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 10:56 AM

Usually one feels pity commingled with fear when they spot someone riding BART sans pants, but this weekend saw throngs of riders in thongs celebrating the annual No Pants BART Ride.
Participants (ahem) made their way onto the trains then out onto the streets. Check out more images here.

Monday Morning Hangover: New Year's Weekend Edition

Posted By on Mon, Jan 4, 2010 at 10:11 AM

San Francisco doesn't really need an excuse to party, but New Year's is as good a reason as any, and it seemed as if there were parties on every street corner last Thursday night. From impromptu groups gathered around street musicians to high-end hotel balls, the city brought it full force when the clock struck 2010.

The Bohemian Circus  at Cell Space was full of flexible freaks.

Revelers at Westin Hotel's Passport to the World party indulged in a fashion show in addition to dancing, and the girls on the floor gave the models a run for their money.

Hot party people really brought it to the dance floor at Atmosphere's New Year's Eve Party. Luckily they were willing to take a break from busting moves to pose for the camera.

Those who weren't to hungover from the day before (and probably some who were) came out on Saturday night to see bands from Talking House Records tear up Bottom of the Hill.

End of the Year Hangover: 2009 in Music, NSFW, and Cannabis Club

Posted By on Mon, Dec 28, 2009 at 6:13 PM

While you were out shopping or flying or arguing with the family, we were combing our photo archives to compile the best and the brightest of San Francisco 2009.

From Morrissey, to Modest Mouse, from the Flaming Lips to KISS, from Dizzy Balloon to Silversun Pickups and festivals galore in between.



Welcome to "The Year in Concerts: Best of S.F. Music."

Monday Morning Hangover: Drunk Santas, Lusty Ladies and Not So Silent Night

Posted By on Mon, Dec 14, 2009 at 3:40 PM

The Holidays are creeping up on us, and that not only means more drinking, but more drinking in Santa hats. Red and green tinged parties are hard to avoid right now, and we went to more than a few of them over the weekend.

  • Christopher Victorio
In some parts of the country, the beginning of the Christmas season is heralded by the first snowfall. Here in S.F., it's rung in by a roaming crew of bad Santa's armed with flasks. Not even a torrential downpour could keep revelers from turning out for this year's Santacon.

Click through the mayhem in Gretchen Robinette's "SantaCon SF - Santarchy 2009."

Live 105's Not So Silent Night concert featured Vampire Weekend, Muse, Metric and more. Amped up crowds rocked out, and the occasional crowd surfer found their way into the hands of venue staff.

The lovely women of the Lusty Lady, a unionized, co-operative peep-show in North Beach, celebrated the holidays at the Make-Out room with a Ms.Tank Girl pageant, private dances and more.

Monday Morning Hangover: Latex, Gypsies, and Bike Nerds

Posted By on Mon, Dec 7, 2009 at 12:36 PM

We had a busy weekend. It seemed like as soon as we stripped off our latex, there was someone shoving a delectable side dish in our face, and then we needed to dance to a gypsy brass band. Not that we're complaining.

Monday Morning Hangover: Drag Queens, Bubbles, Balloons, & Birthdays

Posted By on Mon, Nov 30, 2009 at 2:08 PM

From outrageous drag shows, to wholesome bubble spectacles, last weekend promised something for everyone.

We went to the 100th installment of Truck's drag show, Cocktailgate, where performers like Trangela Lansbury and Mutha Clucka ruled the stage and the dance floor.

Monday Morning Hangover: Wild Wild Weekend (NSFW)

Posted By on Mon, Nov 23, 2009 at 3:36 PM

We're new in town, so one thing we'll be grateful for this Thanksgiving is that there's never a dearth of things to cover in our new home. From swaying to the sultry sounds of bands like The Fiery Furnaces and Mastodon on the Metalocalypse Tour as well as getting our bike porn fix at the SF Bike Expo, this weekend San Francisco truly put the S.F. in NSFW.



First we hit up ARTundressed, a city-wide exhibition of erotic art ...

  • 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.'"
