    The House of Tudor

    DJ Damon has a very busy week ahead: On Wednesday, July 23, his limp but fiscally successful fetish dance night, "Bondage A Go-Go," is hosting its ever-popular and certainly ridiculous "Mr. Bondage A Go-Go" contest at the Trocadero; then, on Thursday...

    Night Crawler

    A boisterous line of campy enchantresses and adoring queers (it's a fussy distinction) stretches out from under the glittering Castro Theater marquee, down the block, and around the corner -- a clear indication that producer Marc Huestis has far surp...

    KRS-One I Got Next (Jive) Only the fools who maintain a willful ignorance of hip hop's influence on pop culture would deny KRS-One (aka Kris Parker) his props. His combination of authority, longevity, and integrity is matched only by Sonic ...

    Riff Raff

    Another Reason Why S.T. Should Henceforth Be Known as Riff Raff's "Goth Correspondent" Those of you who were watching Hard Copy on June 26 -- and don't even bother trying to deny that you watch the tabloid show -- might have recognized the euphonious...

    A Clarification, Courtesy of the Music Editor, Regarding the Credo at the Very Bottom of This Column That's "flack," not "flak." We like flak. "Flack," on the other hand -- we "flak" that. (M.B.) We Care a Lot On Friday, July 18, Miller Genuine Dra...

    Swamped

    John Fogerty Blue Moon Swamp (Warner Bros.) John Fogerty's latest re-emergence discontinues a marvelous tradition of obsessiveness and fanaticism. Emotionally insular, adamantine in his beliefs to the point of brittleness, Fogerty has drive...

    Night Crawler

    At least 30 people stand outside the Transmission Theater, hoping that someone inside will be unable to withstand the heat and the scratchy stink of propane gas. For a moment a deep, auditory throbbing makes the sidewalk feel alive. A young woman wea...

    Racket

    We all hanker for convenience, and this yen occasionally leads to a temporary suspension of preference. There's what-we'd-rather-do (in my case, flip through the bins at a small new-and-used record store) and what-we-can-do-in-10-minutes-and-not-go-t...

    Racket

    Deborah Gibson is a bit flustered. She's just informed the audience that she's going to have to leave a little early tonight. "If I don't make my plane, I'll be ..." She pauses momentarily, considering her choice of words. "... screwed." She giggles ...

    Night Crawler

    A pale summer sun seems hesitant to fight the cantankerous shoal of clouds that threatens the city's Fourth of July picnicking. By noon, it has all but forsaken its civic duty, content to look like a photonegative of a solar eclipse. In disgust, the ...

    Quiet, Please -- We're Rocking - The American Analog Set, and how quiet may be the last place for rock to go

    When we talk about "rock" -- a genre that has already lost its "roll," not to mention its "'n' " -- what do we mean? Yes, the term comes from old blues slang for the sexual act, and yes, it has something to do with rock's hard backbeat -- a rhythm we...

    Barely a Ripple - How bad management made a mess of Making Waves '97

    The colossal foam heads of the absurdist band Idiot Flesh loom in the shadows of Embarcadero high-rises. Halloween magic erupts from the stage as the night engulfs the longest sun of the year. Wonderful ironies suffuse the darkness: rock against rock...
