Monday’s Twerk: Not Just a Made-up Word Anymore!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


Do any of you guys remember a song called “Whistle While You Twurk”? I think it dropped when I was in middle school in the late ’90s, and a more, shall we say, “experienced” friend informed me that the strange neologism meant a certain sexual act I was definitely not supposed to know about. I dismissed it as made-up, but it turns the same term with a different spelling, “twerking,” is an actual dance style of some sort, which makes it a fitting name for Twerk at Rebel.

Twerk is a “crunk lesbian party,” so of course there will be stripper poles, booty clapping, and popping, locking, and dropping it. Also there will be $4 well drinks. But a word of caution: I still don’t fully understand twerking, so I need you to go to Twerk and report that. Could you do that for me?

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.
