| Another Goddamn Benefit
For the past twenty years San Francisco filmmaker Marc Huestis has been active in
producing and documenting numerous shows - many of them benefits
- which have produced some singular "only in San Francisco"
moments. From the 1977 show Strange Fruit to 1995's The Poseidon
Adventure, tonight's funky video Valentine features a sampling
of snippets spanning two decades and offering a unique
historical overview of local alternative theater. It captures
stellar performances, tacky drags and fabu hairdos -
highlighting such notorious talents as Ann Block, Arturo
Galster, Bambi, Carol Lynley, Carpateria, Connie Champagne,
Doris Fish, Esmerelda, Justin Bond, Leland Moss and the cast of
The AIDS show, Lulu, Marga Gomez, Mark Finch, Miss X, Philip R.
Ford, Reno, Silvana Nova, Stella Stevens, Susan the Space Lady,
Tom Ammiano, Tommy Pace, Tony Vaguely and The Sick & Twisted
Players and many others.
