Check It Out: Wild Combinations

Tonight The Stud at 399 Ninth St. & Harrison hosts weekly party, ALL MEN ARE EVIL EXCEPT MY GIRLFRIEND. Party throwers promise you that it is San Francisco’s one and only club for “queers and their dears, riot grrrls, punks and punkettes, misfits of all kinds and related ilk of revolutionaries.” Though it is not likely “Viva La Vida” will be played anywhere in the venue that night, let alone inside. In fact, resident DJs will be spinning old favorites from Bikini Kill, Bratmobile and Plasmatics to give you the most frightening dance party playlist since the 1993 Seattle basement scene. Admission is five dollars at the door.

Director Matt Wolf showcases his debut documentary feature, “WILD COMBINATION: A Portrait of Arthur Russell” this weekend at the Roxie Theatre. Via family members and comrades, Allen Ginsberg and Philip Glass, Wolf tells of Mr. Russell’s bizarre and tragic musical career. Russell fused his cellist expertise with disco sensibilities to create some of the wildest tonal combinations the New York dance scene had ever experienced. It has earned him a spot on a short list of never-to-be forgotten avant-garde composers.
