Bowie Ball

A celebration of Bowie's many faces, styles, and sounds
|
()

PREVIEW Not much can stop Swing Goth. Not the misperception that the biweekly dance class and party is strictly swing or goth (it's all types of partner dancing, to all types of post-punk music). Not a cross-town venue change earlier this year (from Fat City to El Rio). Nothing, it seems, except a big ass flippin' fire. In June, Swing Goth was all set to host the Bowie Ball, its biggest event yet, when an explosion in a man hole (remember that one?) shut down the Great American Music Hall. But even fire could only delay SG founder Brian Gardner for so long. Read more »

Bootie Six-Year Anniversary Weekender

Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
|
()

EVENT A good mashup is musical proof that sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. ("ABC"? "Paradise City"? Both good songs. "ABC City?" Even better.) And when it comes to the art of mixing parts of two or more songs to make one revelatory new one, Bootie SF's Adrian and Mysterious D are expert mathematicians. The duo has been solving mashup equations for the masses for six years, and this weekend they're celebrating their international success with two nights of madness. Read more »

SF International Poetry Festival

Four days of events dedicated to the medium that made Allen Ginsberg, Robert Duncan, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti famous
|
()

PREVIEW San Francisco is known internationally for many things, but top among them are parties, politics, and poetry. We've got plenty of events dedicated to the first two, but it's surprising that we didn't have a full-blown poetry festival until two years ago. Thankfully, the city, the public libraries, and the Friends of the library are back this year with four days of events dedicated to the medium that made Allen Ginsberg, Robert Duncan, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti famous — with an intention of continuing the tradition as a biennial gathering.

PREVIEW As we working stiffs watch more and more of our peers enjoying their government-funded, sun-filled funemployment, it's hard not to feel tied down by the weight of the work week. But remember: not all bondage is bad. Case in point: Mike West's Partial Suspension for Complete Sadists and the Marquis Fetish Ball, both happening this week to remind us that being told what to do can be a treat. Read more »
