SEX AND NIGHTLIFE: It's a good ol' SF WTF freakend with Folsom Street Fair's Deviants, Lovevolution, Earthdance, Show Me Where It Hurts, Temptation, and Sisters of the Moon
TEMPTATION: FOLSOM EDITION
The Cat Club is always one of my favorite places to pop into for a breather during the Sunday Folsom Street Fair madness. (Favorite vision from a few years ago: a gorgeous creature on crutches somehow managing to roller skate around the dance floor in a latex mankini. Edge play!) This year, the Cat's going big the Saturday night before the fair, as the ever-delicious Princess Pandora hosts an indie, goth, and 1980s electro gala with DJs Aaron Axelsen, Nako, and the monthly Temptation party resident DJs.
Sat/24, 9:30 p.m.-3 a.m., $8. Cat Club, 1190 Folsom, SF. www.sfcatclub.com.. Facebook: Temptation Folsom
Good lord! Folsom Street Fair keeps expanding its musical palette (Billy Ray Martin, In Flagranti, HOTTUB, and more perform this year) and scandalous party options. Check out, for instance, this Deviants gig: three of the best queer party crews in SF — Hard French, Honey Soundsystem, and Some Thing — are joining forces for this official after-Folsom Street Fair party, outside and inside Public Works. And it's gonna be a corker, with Portland's haunting housers Miracles Club and and Italy's acid diva Hard Ton performing live, eyebrow-searing drag shows, an enormous amount of DJs (like Dabecy of Electronic Music Bears) and wee surprises. Something that won't be a surprise is BABES AHOY.
Sun/25, 4 p.m.-3 a.m., $20/$30. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. deviantsfolsom.tumblr.com
