Far-out History Lesson Tonight

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

All right, you win: Cats don’t wear pajamas, and if you think you’ve seen it, that was actually a dog. But tonight, you can see the next best thing: brainy, brawny skirt Ginger Murray‘s ginchy cabaret at the Make-Out Room.

Every Cat’s Pajamas event honors past cultural aesthetics through artistic performances, from bands to burlesque. Tonight’s theme, “Stone Fox & Bangs,” celebrates the style and feel of strong ’60s chicks. So come decked out in your mini-dress and Ivy Leaguers, go ape with the Jackie Ks, and get to trollin’ for that free love. Bring your college-ruled Meads, too, because you’re gonna get a historical-type learnin’.

Performers include The Bang, a local band covering 1960s hits by female vocalists; poet and WordParty founder Jennifer Barone; go-go dancers; and Fox & Woman, a musical act that will make you feel like you’re trippin’ balls — in a good way. With Ginger as your teach, you’ll dig what this decade was all about. And the sliding scale means you won’t blow a lot of bread.

Everyone knows the Make-Out Room is groovy, despite the definite dearth of actual making out that takes place there. But The Cat’s Pajamas is beating its feet to Slim’s for its next go-round in June, so fit in your foxy fix while you can.

The Cat’s Pajamas: Stone Fox & Bangs at the Make-Out Room 3225 22nd St. at Mission [The Mission] Monday, February 28 at 8pm $5-10 [sliding scale]

Sarah M. Smart - Red-Light Special

Sarah M. Smart was summoned into being on a distant ice cream planet
through an unholy union of Two-Buck Chuck and unicorns. They sent her to Indianapolis and then the University of Missouri's School of Journalism
to spread peace and big hair. Perpetually in mourning for the comma, she
has worked for a variety of print media, including Indianapolis
, Global Journalist, and Vox. Since moving
to San Francisco for the booming dumpster-diving scene, she has been an
online operative for such fine folks as , Neo-Factory, and
Academy of Art University. After a day of cat-feeding, hat-making,
dog-walking, vegan baking, and daydreaming about marrying rich, all she
wants is a margarita as big as her face.
