Before those pride weekend memories have had a chance to fade, "Club Faith" is gearing up for Drag Races, San Francisco-style. The premise is charmingly simple, and has that right-now interactive hook that's sucked us all screaming back into game show land: Pull five well-proportioned volunteers from the audience, strip them down to their skivvies, then give 'em 15 minutes to put on makeup, choose their wardrobes, and perform their drag numbers. The queen of the night is chosen by the roar of the crowd and awarded 100 smackers, plus, of course, the adoration that is only her just due, which has got to be at least as good as it gets for royals anywhere these days.
Crys-T La Scivious is armed for a royal battle at Drag Races.
Tear into the stretch Thursday from 9:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. at "Club Faith," 715 Harrison (at Third Street), S.F. Admission is $10; call 487-6616.
The lovely Crys-T La Scivious does the honors, assisted by sidekicks Kitty Kunt and Miss HollyGram providing wacky hijinks and entertainment throughout. Monthly resident DJ Phil B ("Mass," "Metropolis") soundtracks the goings-on, and "Club Faith"'s 18-plus policy ensures that everything stays (barely) legal. Don't forget to buckle up.
