Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the biggest Turbonegrofan of all? The Norwegian metallic sextet has many wonderful admirers, and there's lots to love: The oooh-I'm-scary face paint on one guy, the perky sailor's cap on another, the trashy gay rock ("Ass Cobra," anyone?), and the group's constantly reiterated love of debauchery have gained it legions of followers. The band's international fan club, Turbojugend, has throngs of members, if you know what we mean. We even know a lady who dressed her dog like lead singer Hank Von Helvete -- and uses its photo for her Friendster picture. Does she qualify as the biggest Turbonegro fan? Hard to say. Look closely at the crowd as the International Noise Conspiracy and Juliette & the Licks open at 8 p.m. at the Fillmore, 1805 Geary (at Fillmore), S.F. Admission is $20; call 346-6000 or visit www.thefillmore.com.
