Peaches Christ doesnt show movies she stages events. Peaches is the longtime force behind Midnight Mass and director of last years horror comedy All About Evil. Her spring salute to taboo-smashing local filmmakers, the San Francisco Underground Short Film Festival, is packed with stimulation, titillation, and naughty laughs. Follow the klieg lights to the late-night world premiere of Devious, Inc., xuxEs kinky S.F.-shot feature set in the flashy, trashy world of fetish escorts, replete with musical numbers and (were just guessing) a happy ending. The preshow festivities include a fetish costume contest. The festival begins with Peaches and Sam Sharkey warming up the crowd with a rock set, followed by a butt-cheek-challenging program of 20 (!) short films including Sinking State, a collaboration between Frazer Bradshaw and Beth Lisick (Everything Strange and New). Put it this way: If anyone can get away with calling a shorts program and a feature a festival, its Peaches Christ.
