May’s Bohemian Carnival photos and upcoming events

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

See the photos here!

San Francisco’s much loved Carnival came out of hiatus last Friday for the latest installment of Bohemian Carnival, that raucous and sexy alternative to ZinZanni’s (since we won’t serve you dinner! (though the DNA Lounge will)).

Besides your hosts Vau de Vire Society and Gooferman, performances by Extra Action Marching Band, Blaze, Fou Fou Ha!, that silly German Torsten (an absolute riot), and the Cowboy Derby Girls rocked the night.

Tonight! Gooferman Day

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

By official proclamation by the Mayor of San Francisco, tonight is Gooferman Day! And thus a celebration is in order. What better way to enjoy this day of Fools than with your favorite klowns?

Tuesday, April 1, 2008, 9pm-2am
Annie’s Social Club
917 Folsom St.
San Francisco, CA 94107
$7, 21+, circus/carney attire more than recommended.

I’ll be shooting there tonight.

Pirates vs. Clowns with Mutaytor and Cirque Berzerk

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

How can you possibly have a party titled “Klowns vs. Pirates” (spelled with a “k” no less) in San Francisco and -not- invite us — not even -tell- us said party was to take place? This is an outrage, I tell you. And thus, the klowns of SF did picket! We hit the streets with our message: “Don’t import clown labor! Don’t outsource clowns! Picket like a scab!” And lo, mayhem unfolded.

For the record, we do <3 our friends and family Cirque Berzerk and Mutaytor; and they love us too, as evidenced by Sue (founder of Cirque Berzerk) providing her dubious “support” for us in the way of the labeling as pictured above. It’s not their fault they’re scabs.
