This Halloween, Peaches Christ digs up a special 20th anniversary screening of the deliciously dark Death Becomes Her Peaches Christ Heklinashowbiz satire DEATH BECOMES HER. Starring two Oscar-winning leading ladies and sitting uncomfortably between the Back to the Future films and Forrest Gump on Robert Zemeckis’ filmography, Death Becomes Her is truly one of the most ghoulishly entertaining A-list campfests ever to tumble down the staircase from a major studio.

On Saturday, October 20th, the evening will blast off with a neck-twisting new pre-show featuring immortal frenemies Peaches Christ and Heklina in the roles they were born (a very long time ago) to play: undead Beverly Hills rivals Madeleine Ashton and Helen Sharp.

And don’t miss the opportunity to pay tribute to your dearest departed star with their Dead Celebrity Costume Contest!

Get your tickets NOW for this bitchy bonanza at San Francisco’s historic Castro Theatre!

Amoeba Music and CIIS Public Programs & Performances present Not in Our Name: Dia de Los Muertos Concert with The John Santos Sextet on October 27thJohn Santos Sextet at the Brava Theatre in San Francisco.

"Perhaps the most innovative Latin Jazz group playing today outside Cuba...highly innovative, intimately explosive."


East Bay Express

Five-time Grammy nominee and USA Fontanals Fellow, John Santos, and his stellar Sextet shed light on the historical and cultural significance of Latin Jazz, as well as its aesthetic characteristics pertaining to instrumentation, rhythm, interpretation and improvisation. Organized in 2003, they specialize in educational presentations from lecture/demonstrations to detailed clinics focusing on any number of relevant subjects such as composition, arrangement, rhythmic development, stylistic interpretation, studio performance, etc. Their repertoire consists of exciting arrangements from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the US, as well as original compositions. Their first CD, Papa Mambo, was released on John's Machete Records label in the summer of 2007. Their second CD, Perspectiva Fragmentada, was released in October, 2008. Equally at home with a dance or concert repertoire, the John Santos Sextet presents a wide range of styles and rhythms for audiences of all ages.
