Going to church with Reverend Bertie Pearson and EpiscoDisco

Reverend Bertie P waxes philosophical

But there's a connection to the living at EpiscoDisco, too. "San Francisco nightlife can be a bit clique-y," says Pearson, a master of tart understatement. "Sometimes if you walk up to a group of people and just start talking to them, they look at you like you're insane. That doesn't happen here. Isn't that great?"

EPISCODISCO with DJ John Friend and Pale Hoarse live. Saturday, Dec. 19 and every third Saturday of the month, 7 p.m.-10 p.m., free. Grace Cathedral, 1100 California, SF.

DERRICK MAY Yes, the Godfather is coming, throwing down one of his gleaming Hi-Tek-Soul soul sets to call the spirits down. Thu/10, 10 p.m., $10 advance. Vessel, 84 Campton Place, SF.
