It's a Mother's Day celebration to die for this Saturday, May 10th at SF's Castro Theatre at 8pm as the serial mom peaches christinimitable Ricki Lake joins hostess Peaches Christ for a giant Serial Mom anniversary tribute night.

What better way to say I LOVE YOU, MOM this Mother's Day weekend then with a screening of the John Waters' wickedly hilarious classic, a live pre-show stage performance, and the one and only Ricki Lake?!

Peaches Christ will conduct an onstage interview with Ms. Lake including an audience Q&A preceding the screening.

The pre-show, "Serial Queen," co-stars Peaches as "Dottie," the innocent victim of a vicious crank-caller.

The show will also feature the fantastic and erotic dance stylings of SexiTude. Wear white shoes at your own risk.

Super Duper Alice Cooper Screens One Night Only at Balboa Theatre, 5/1

Posted by The Bay Area Crew, April 22, 2014 11:43am | Post a Comment

Are you ready for Super Duper Alice Cooper?! It's the first ever "doc opera" -- a dizzying blend of super duper alice cooperdocumentary archive footage, animation, and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper -- and it's showing for one night only at the Balboa Theatre in San Francisco on May 1st at 7pm and 9:30pm. Get your tickets now!

The film is a twisted tale of a teenage Dr. Jekyll whose rock n’ roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, a preacher’s son who struck fear into the hearts of parents as ALICE COOPER, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the '60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the '70s to his triumphant comeback as '80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each other’s souls. Alice’s story is told not only by the man himself, but through exclusive interviews with members of the original band, Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon, and Dee Snider.

Super Duper Alice Cooper is the creation of Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn at Banger Films, producers of Iron Maiden: Flight 666 (2009 SXSW Audience Choice Winner) and Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage (2010 Grammy-nominated and Tribeca Audience Choice Winner), and much-lauded filmmaker Reginald Harkema, winner of the TIFF Special Jury Prize for his film Monkey Warfare.
