The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

It’s all going down on 10/13 @ Public Works in SF!

This is my 20th year in San Francisco! And to celebrate this milestone, I’m throwing a HUGE party that’s two decades in the making.

This party will be full of performances from some of the Bay Area’s brightest local acts. Expect everything from burlesque to live music and from comedy to drag. This is THE event of 2022.

It’s also our biggest fundraiser of the year. Your tickets are going to help continue to keep you informed and entertained for another 20 years. Seeing as a huge part of BAS is about fighting for justice, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

About Our Performers:

Galen + Solar (Sunset Sound System)

The legendary Sunset Sound System was created in 1994 with an undying dedication to bringing quality dance music and people together in unique and beautiful settings. Today, Sunset Sound System is on the move with incredible boat and outdoor parties as well as the annual internationally acclaimed Sunset Campout Festival.

Juanita MORE!

Juanita MORE! is a denizen of the limelight. For three decades, the laudable hostess has blitzed San Francisco with high glamour, drag irreverence, and danceable beats illuminating the entire city. MORE! continues to be a heaping dollop of generosity and a sprinkle of nerve. She inspires those around her to make positive differences in their lives and communities, doing it all with timeless elegance and an innovative spirit. Most recently, after her reign, Miss MORE! holds the title of Absolute Empress 56 of the Imperial Council of San Francisco – one of the oldest non-profit organizations globally. MORE! has helped raise over 1 million dollars for local charities.

Kat Robichaud & Brendan Getzell

Meet Kat Robichaud, a powerhouse that channels Palmer’s theatrical brand of rock along with echoes of past glam greats – ’70s Bowie, Roxy Music, T.Rex, etc. Kat’s eponymous debut LP Kat Robichaud and The Darling Misfits contains some of the most grandiose sonic arrangements you’ll most likely hear this decade, from circus march opener “The Elephant Song” to the epic, mournful ballad “Why Do You Love Me Now?” Robichaud (who is originally from North Carolina and competed on The Voice in 2013) has an incredible voice that effortlessly balances everything from razor wit (the cocky, satiric “Rockstars Don’t Apologize”) to raw emotion (the bittersweet “The Long Kiss Goodnight”), and the Darling Misfits completely nail the nuances of bombastic, arena-sized rock n’ roll that would make Queen proud.

Brendan Getzell is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter from San Francisco. He has been Musical Director of Kat Robichaud’s Misfit Cabaret since 2015, and Host and Producer of the award-winning Hotel Utah Open Mic since 2011. He was Musical Director for SF Shakespeare Festival for its 2019 production of As You Like It, and has performed and recorded with countless bands and artists, notably David Bowie “worship” band First Church of the Sacred Silversexual, Dragland, Gold Minor, The Dull Richards, and his own band, The Getz. He also finished a close second on Jeopardy! in 2014. Check out his full-length album Better Late Than Never on all streaming services.

Stroy Moyd

Stroy Moyd is a stand-up comedian from Oakland, CA. He was recently cast to play himself on STARZ! hit TV show Blindspotting. He’s also the ceo of Bay Area comedy collective #HellaFunny. When he’s not opening for Dave Chappelle or performing at the Chase Center you can find him smoking a joint at the Skate park. He’s schedule to tape his first one hour comedy special at the end of this year. 


Known as the “The Cyclone of Burlesque”, Redbone was named one of the Top 50 Most Influential Burlesque Industry Figures from 2016-2021 by 21st Century Burlesque Magazine. She was also 1st Runner up of the Tournament of Tease, Miss Exotic World Competition of The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend 2019. Redbone is also the Founder of Cyclone Enterprises, Producer of Moist – An All Black Erotic Cabaret, and Co-Creator of The Nudie Nubie’s Show.

Conspiracy of Beards

San Francisco’s Conspiracy of Beards is a 30 member male choir that performs dynamic, original, a cappella arrangements of the poetic songs of Leonard Cohen.

Chris Riggins

Chris Riggins’ comedy comes from a very sincere place. A native of Berkeley, California, his comedy comes second to his intellect, and his ability to comment on the world around him. To see Chris perform is to see a window into the reality of American culture, both comic and tragic. While Chris has many credits to his name, including opening for legends like Dave Chappelle, his true appeal is in his brutally honest comedy, which will force you to think while laughing.

Dennis Kyriakos

Dennis Kyriakos entertains discerning audiences at corporate events and high-end private functions from New York City to San Francisco, Las Vegas to Palm Springs, Los Angeles to Orlando, and even Shanghai. He was born and raised in New York City, lives in Oakland, CA and does not own a top hat.

Allison Hooker

Allison Hooker is a San Francisco based comedian and writer and a member of the #hellafunny comedy crew.  She produces four weekly shows and recently helped open San Francisco’s newest comedy club: HellaFunny Comedy Club. She has appeared in SF Sketchfest three times, performed at the Chase Center, won several local comedy competitions and once opened for a guy who once opened for Dave Chappelle.
