Peaches Does Herself at the Mezzanine

Peaches has made a career out of fucking with genre and with gender for more than 10 years now. She does cock-rock as easily as electro-pop, and she's been known to rock a pretty impressive cock or two as part of her stage costumes. Her new concert film, Peaches Does Herself, combines a retrospective of her music with a fake autobiogra-phy. Fake or not, it's impressive whenever someone decides to portray his and/or her own life with the help of "The Fatherfucker Dancers," not to mention the fabulous trans-gender porn star Danni Daniels strutting her stuff (all of it) as the love interest of the fictional Peaches.

This may be the queerest rock opera to hit stage or screen in years, if not ever. You have two chances to catch it during the San Francisco International Film Festival this weekend, as well as the real Peaches, performing live at Mezzanine.

Peaches Does Herself shows as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival at the Sundance Kabuki Theater on Monday April 29 at 9:45 p.m. and May 2 at 9:15 p.m. Tickets are $13-$15. Peaches performs live at Mezzanine May 1 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $25. Visit festival.sffs.org or the show's Ticketfly page.
