Dirty Looks presents Hippie Dick!

Dirty Looks presents Hippie Dick!

Honoring Gene Barnes / Portia Manson's legendary zine HIPPIE DICK! with a screening, talk by Keroscene and DJ sets by Tammy Rae Carland (Mr. Lady) and Josh Cheon (Dark Entries)

Yes, Dorothy, there really is a queer tribal underground
We are all potential channelers of an ancient, trans-genderal shamanic tradition

In the early 1990s, Gene Barnes / Portia Manson unveiled HIPPIE DICK! onto the world. HIPPIE DICK! was a Xeroxed porn zine that sought to radicalize the tired label hippie by mythologizing it within the faerie scene. With literary contributions and occult collages, HIPPIE DICK! echoed the DIY publishing craze and communal sensibility at Evergreen State College in Olympia, where Barnes was a student. There, he produced various short works of film and video, inspired by his loins, by Kenneth Anger and by his recent HIV positive test results. After graduating, Barnes moved to San Francisco where he built a micro-publishing empire, alternating between print issues of HIPPIE DICK! and producing made-to-order hardcore hippie porn. Barnes died in 1995, "another boy genius who's fucking gone," sang Kathleen Hanna of Genes passing on Bikini Kills *Reject All American* LP.

Dirty Looks will reproduce HIPPIE DICK! volume 1 for the first 100 attendees of the event and Kelly Marie Martin (aka Keroscene), publisher of thorn will give a presentation on the zine and its legacy in advance of the screening.

There's an effervescence within Beige's sound. Beige's (Seraphine Collective, Chaotic Neutral || Detroit) sets effortlessly sway between bouncing bongos, fluttering acid lines, wobbly bass woven through with flashes of Detroit deepness. As part of the Seraphine Collective, a group of feminists working to radically transform the Detroit music scene, Beige helps organize workshops, shows, and other community-building events.

Palace of Trash presents:THE PLASTIC SHOW

“I’ll be your garbage, Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know”
This month, Palace of Trash is going to apply sustainable practices to the creative process. We pledge not to buy anything to use in the show. We’ll use what we have, borrow what we can, or reconsider our need for it. All our promotional material for this month will be digital to conserve paper. We’ll also be doing an adapted version of Beth Terry’s “Plastic Challenge” by saving and cataloguing our plastic trash for seven days. We’ll use our seven days worth of plastic trash to make costumes, props, and set pieces for the show. After the performance, we’ll collect, sort, and dispose of our waste responsibly.

Kosmetik + We Are Monsters: Vladimir Ivkovic

We Are Monsters and Kosmetik team up to bring the biggest cult selector in underground dance music -

Vladimir Ivkovic (Salon des Amateurs//Offen Music//DE) is known for his deep and murky record selections who's sound may well be traveling through space/time and also the swamp, simultaneously. "I see DJing as something that provides possibilities to enter or create new places, to wander together and see what's out there, exploring the unconscious." Advocating for "no-rules" in his art of DJing, Ivkovic delivers one-of-a-kind experiences that also allow different interpretations from individual listeners.

This is an especially rare San Francisco appearance and not to be missed!

How to die/d.i.y (dubais) Mattress, Beast Nest, Wizard Apprentice

HOW TO DIE (DIY) is a Band/ social sculpture/ an installation/ a performance/ an experiment aimed at creating an anthology of work as a means to process and reconcile the proximity to death and trauma when you are structurally marginalized. This process exists outside of production and without the expectation of making art that is marketable because of social capital and inclusion initiatives hand fed by cultural gatekeepers. THIS SHIT IS PUNK.
