Toxic Waste Face presents TEENS with FEVER

From the twisted minds of Toxic Waste Face comes TEENS WITH FEVER, a sickening drag concert and benefit party to raise funds to send Toxic Waste Face to Miami Art Week!

That’s right, sis, the kitty’s out the bag - Toxic Waste Face has been invited to perform at the Satellite Art Fair during Art Basel, but we need to raise a little coin to get there. So, we are throwing a cute lil function with some of our favorite big names ♥ ♥ Plus, TWF will debut our newest alter egos, the girls of TEENS WITH FEVER, your soon-to-be-favorite internationally-infamous pop supergroup!

Mixed Forms 13: Patrick Russell (The Bunker New York)

From our initial days, It's been a goal to bring Brooklyn based and Detroit bred Patrick Russell to a Mixed Forms dance-floor and we couldn't be more excited to finally do so. We're all in for a treat. It's been an honor to create one of San Francisco's most eclectic dance-floors, with the help of out of town and local guests, and the historic home venue. We hope you're able to join us for one of our final nights at the current incarnation of The STUD bringing all of those elements together for the occasion. See you on the dance-floor.

******************************************************

Every month we run the most absurd raffle in the Bay Area. The winner, among other things, has the opportunity to pie a drag queen in the face. All proceeds go to a charity we feel align with our values and is doing stellar work in the community.

**************************************************************
Accessibility info- There are two steps leading up to the club at the entrance on Harrison near Gordon. There's a second entrance that is wheelchair accessible on the corner of Harrison and 9th.
A ramp with a slight incline connects the dance floor and the main bar area. All bathrooms are gender neutral and there is one, larger single use bathroom. None of the bathrooms are equipped with handlebars. This is not a scent free space and it can get crowded and hot.

Dirty Looks: Eight Years on at The Stud SF

Dirty Looks: Eight Years on at The Stud SF

Filmmakers Mariah Garnett, Aimee Goguen, Brontez Purnell, Jill Reiter and Michael Robinson in attendance!

Dirty Looks compiles eight years of experimental screenings for a shorts program of signature delights that queer the pop cannon and (under)mine history for all of her unanswered questions. Ranging from digital drag revisionism to post-bohemian celluloid, Dirty Looks: 8 Years on reassesses the past through a fiercely queer and politicized lens, “who brought us here?” and “where are we now?” Ranging from 16mm films, super8 transfers, Hi8, HD video and Getty stock footage, this DL Cliff’s Notes screening spins circles around contemporary queer subjectivities, snarling with a punk zeal and a utopian demand for more.

Program:
Warren Sonbert + Wendy Appel, Amphetamine, 16mm, B&W, 10 min., 1966
Brontez Purnell, 100 Boyfriends Mixtape (the demo), Super 8 on video, 8min., 2017
Jill Reiter, Frenzy, Super 8 on digital video, 12min., 1993
Lila De Magalhaes, Poppers, video, 5min., 2013
Michael Robinson, Onward Lossless Follows, HD video, 17min., 2017
Chris E. Vargas, Liberaceón, SD video, 13min., 2011
Aimee Goguen, tongue job, Hi8 on SD video, 4min., 2013
Mariah Garnett, Encounters I May or May Not Have Had with Peter Berlin, 16mm, 15min., 2012

Bar of One's Own : Monique Jenkinson

A happy hour for the famous, infamous, private, public and secretive writers of the Bay along with their scribe-amorous admirers.

This month we are featuring Monique Jenkinson

Monique Jenkinson is a multifaceted artist whose work considers the performance of femininity as a powerful, vulnerable and subversive act. She and her drag queen alter ego Fauxnique (who made herstory by winning a major drag pageant) perform locally, nationally and internationally in a range of contexts from nightclubs to theaters to museums. Recently she engaged in an embodied conversation with Gender Theory pioneer Judith Butler, had a kiki at Stanford with RuPaul bestie Michelle Visage and was in residence at Headlands Center for the Arts. She will premier her newest performance work, Girl at Joe Goode Annex in mid-October and is writing a memoir about drag for Amethyst Editions/Feminist Press.
