The Giants suck. So do the A's. But it could be a fun season.

By A.J. Hayes

How’s this for sunny spring time forecast: for the first time since the mid-1980s, both the Giants and A’s will enter the major league season without a sliver of a hope of contending for a playoff slot. Read more »

Kerchiefs. Gezundheit! We've been reticent to write about one of our favorite local designers, Mica Phelan aka Horseface, because he's just so damn popular -- no one is anyone in this town without a House of Horseface bandanna hanging somewhere off their body. And we'd never cave in to that kind of popularity. Kidding! Read more »

Not No Wave: These are ghost punks

By Vanessa Carr

With a storm of eerie electronics and crashing beats, otherworldly sounds that clang like metal pipes, and a palette of weird effects, it's no wonder Brooklyn/Chicago-based trio These Are Powers are calling their trance-inducing incantations "ghost punk."

Newsom to clubs: Curb it!

|

Bad partiers! Go to your room!

Today our former pAArtying mayor (bitter?), himself a nightlife magnate, proposed some rather sketchy "Nightlife Reform Legislation" aimed at, he says, curbing all the violence going on in the vicinity of clubs. Because nightclubs are really the ground zero of violence in this city, of course. Read more »

Clubs: All aboard for Trannyshack Reno

|
(0)

Were you at Trannyshack this past Tuesday? Gurl, you missed it. Miss Juanita More put on a fierce and seamless 40 minute extravaganza of "Minnie the Moocher" Victrola soul-era tributes, complete with her signature "pass out spliffs to the crowd" move. It was all pretty breathless. And my pashmina reeked of weed! Read more »

It really sucks when your teeth start falling apart, especially when you're young and broke, but you don't have to quit your job and run off to Mexico or spend weeks trying to win the lottery at BFC as soon as it starts happening. Read more »

Sad tooths: Canadian dental tourists flock to Mexico

By Justin Juul

One of the first things I noticed when I went down to Los Algodones, Mexico, to get my teeth fixed (this week's Guardian cover story) was that many of the people roaming the streets there were Canadian (and somewhat older). The “ayes” and “aboots” gave it away. “What are these funny hats all aboot?” I heard one of them say.

I asked around and discovered that Los Algodones has become a popular vacation destination for Canadians. Read more »

SUPER EGO Sorry to sound so breathless this time around, nightlifers, but I've got a couple of hot caballeros waiting on me in a beat-up Camry outside, and, you know — meter's running. I swear I'll sprinkle some cybernetic glitters on your Facebook if I get back — poke me — or scam us up some apologetic kumquat caipirissimas from the Americano. If you're lucky, I may even stop spewing hot chunks of drama long enough to let you get a word in edgewise. Read more »
