Experimental Notations, curated by Mission Creek founder Jeff Ray, features visual and audio works by Bay Area artists and will be on view for hte entire month of September.
After last year’s sold-out extravaganza, Peaches Christ again promises to blow the roof off the Castro Theatre. Peaches and her Midnight Mass minions invite you to slather yourself in glittery g-string goodness as the evening kicks-off with the legendary “Volcano Goddess” pre-show.
Feel the need to embrace your inner “showgirl” and “showboy?” Get your Vegas “Ver-sayce” couture ready to sparkle up the night, for as you compete for exclusive gifts and prizes the competition will rage to a soapy lather, and your daytime duds just won’t hold up. And leave the burger and fries for amateurs because with every large popcorn purchase you’ll be guaranteed a personalized lap dance by Peaches’ legion of live “dude-girls”!
Don’t miss this season’s event, as you will never know what special surprises Peaches will pull out of her feathered headdress.
Festivities begin: 8:00pm
