Both as a producer and DJ, Elexos Park builds an environment. His production feels botanical, it's trippy and layered with leftfield beats, skittering hats and synths. His DJ sets traverse techno, EBM, IDM, and more.

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.

Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth: Revealing Queer Muslim Futures

to Sep 7

Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth: Revealing Queer Muslim Futures

The Muslim body has become one of the most contested spaces in the United States and is both a sight of violence and inquiry. In response to the West’s oversimplified understanding of Islam, this futurist evening uses fashion, performance, video, sound art, and music to explore and challenge the histories of violence, colonialism, and imperialism enacted on Muslim bodies.

Organized by artist and performer Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (aka Faluda Islam) in collaboration with Arshia Fatima Haq, Hushidar Mortezaie, Laylatul Qadr, and Saba Taj, Tomorrow We Inherit the Earth presents a complex queer Muslim future and post-utopian world in which ‘monsters’-- Queer creatures evolved to fight Western Imperialism and survive in a toxic world ravaged by apocalypse—reveal themselves and the messages received from intergalactic refugees waiting to inherit a better earth.

Stay for the after party with DJ Arshia Haq and Discostan, a party that merges together art and musical narratives from Beirut to Bangkok via Bombay.

FAKE and GAY: Dorian Electra LIVE! + Ariel Zetina

🚨 NEW PARTY OF HIGHLY DUBIOUS NATURE AND QUESTIONABLE CONTENT 🚨

featuring a very special LIVE performance from femmebot career boy Dorian Electra!

Singer, song-writer, and filmmaker Dorian Electra creates catchy, queer, electronic-pop with a dark edge. PAPER praised their “high-concept musical productions that beautifully marries great pop music with pertinent cultural narratives” about sexuality and gender. Their viral music videos, including 2000 Years of Drag, Ode To The Clitoris, and The History of Vibrators, released on Refinery29, have accumulated over six million views online. In 2016, Bullett Magazine premiered Electra’s ‘Mind Body Problem’, “a woozy synth-pop single that challenges feminine gender identity.” Electra’s stage performances are highly theatrical, combining larger than life set pieces, dancers, and their gender-bending drag-king persona.
