Buffy slays vampires tonight in the Mission!


At the Alamo‘s Terror Tuesday (every Tuesday night, late, cheap) of course! Get your tickets here.

“A vital, primal scuzz blast from the Mission District’s past!”


Monday night only at the Alamo. Here’s the rest of the very intriguing blurb:

Thirty minutes of chains, bats, guns, blood, drugs, gangsters, rollergirls, and an original soundtrack from post-punk/industrial legend Patrick Miller of Minimal Man. The story of the making of RACKTOWN, USA has to be heard to be believed – and lucky enough, we’ll have the guys who made it on hand to reminsice about shooting in grindhouses, bribing cops, and other things we can’t even mention here! We said they bribed cops and there’s STILL stuff we can’t mention in writing! Don’t miss this!

Get tickets here.

The Tenderloin was the first gay neighborhood in San Francisco


And this Thursday night, the Tenderloin Museum is hosting a double feature at the Roxie (in the Mission) all about it:

On March 9th, 2017, Tenderloin Museum will host a double feature screening of Gay San Francisco (1965-1970, 30 mins) by Jonathan Raymond, and Meat Rack by Michael Thomas (1970, 70 mins) at the Roxie Theater. Gay San Francisco is a previously lost documentary, and Meat Rack is an underground film with a modern arthouse cult following. Both films depict the early queer movements in the Tenderloin, unveiling the district as the first gay neighborhood in San Francisco. Meat Rack director Michael Thomas in attendance!
