"NEWS ALERT! San Francisco Has Banished Halloween!!!"

This just in from listings editor John Graham.-ed

"NEWS ALERT! San Francisco Has Banished Halloween!!!" -- At least that's how a flyer advertising a gay event in October phrases it. I personally think "banished" is a little strong — it makes it sound like the scene in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome where Mel Gibson is exiled from Bartertown and all the radioactive desert freaks start chanting, "Gulag...gulag...gulag...."

On the other hand, Mayor Gruesome has yet to offer a replacement event for the scotched Castro celebration, so it looks like the pathetic new-school NIMBYs of the city (go back to Marin, you spoiled shits!) might well have eliminated at least the single largest Halloween event in San Francisco.

In any case, the flyer is here if you wanna see it:

A gay porno party doesn't do anything for me, but I s'pose it might work if you fit in the demographic of East Bay Latin queers who don't have anything better to do on the last Wednesday in October.

Have you heard of anything cool happening on the 31st?

  • 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.'"
