Jack Davis Birthday Bash: Sodomized With a Whiskey Bottle, Who Could Forget

It's hard to believe that the Examiner today reports on the "repercussions" of the 1997 Jack Davis birthday bash without mentioning the most damning of all the party antics: A man being sodomized with a Jack Daniel's bottle.

Or is it hard to believe? After all, we're talking about a newspaper that endorsed both Sarah Palin and Meg Whitman.

Still, we know that Republicans like sex and whiskey, too. Needless to say, we were a little deflated when today's paper toned down one of the most famous political birthday bashes in San Francisco history.   

Ah yes, the notorious 50th for Davis used blood, bondage, and booze to entertain more than 300 attendees, including Sheriff Michael Hennessey, State Sen. Leland Yee, former Mayor Willie Brown and 49ers President Carmen Policy.

It was this raunchy birthday bash -- which Davis called performance art -- that made national headlines and riled the community. But in the Ex today, the festivities from almost 15 years ago had been toned down, making it sound more like a bachelor party than what it really was -- an S&M playground.

The paper calls it a "debauchery with a number of sexual acts" that are talked about to this day.

Talked about everywhere, except in the Ex.

  • 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.'"
