A Season In Hell

Cat Knows Too Much in “Pussy” The Play on A Season in Hell, Monday at 8pm

November 24, 2014
4:26 pm

Pussy_close_upMaura Halloran’s Pussy is clever, quirky, and full of wit and insights into human nature that only a pussycat can have. The title character is a cat owned by a lesbian whose romance is on the rocks. Writer and actor Halloran, John Hell’s guest on tonight’s A Season in Hell, plays both soon-to-be ex-lovers, their mildly homophobic but clearly curious landlady, and Pussy, a keen observer who knows more than she’s able to say. Halloran shifts smoothly and convincingly between all four characters, and is especially delightful to watch jumping onto furniture and calmly licking herself as her ‘masters’ bicker long-distance. Meet all of Pussy’s characters and their creator, Maura Halloran, 8PM tonight on Radio Valencia.

It’s rare that I have two guests in one night but tonight that’s what it’s all about. Long time listeners of my show know that I always enjoy supporting local artists, So tonight two local artists! In the first hour Julie Anderson of Altered Barbie is back once again to talk about the all Barbie exhibition happening at  located at of all places 50 Shotwell in the Mission. If you haven’t seen this you’re really missing out. Just picture it, hundreds of Barbie dolls all altered for your perverse delight. It’s truly a wonder of nature. The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday noon to 7 PM, And Sundays noon to 5 PM. There is a poetry reading Thursday night and the closing gala is a week from Saturday, November 15th. Click on the link for more details.

Many of you may be aware that I used to MC Power Tool Drag Races at Ace Junkyard here in San Francisco. What you may not be aware of is that the landlord pulled the rug out from under Bill “The Junkman” Kennedy and closed the junkyard a few short years ago. Bill was a long time facilitator of the underground art scene here in the city, and Ace was the prime location for artists such as SRL, Life-Size Mouse Trap, Cyclecide, Seemen, and other metal obscurists to obtain those hard-to-find pieces which made their creations come to life. In the studio tonight filmmaker Yasi Mak talking about her documentary: Ace in the Hole, about Ace Junkyard and Bill “The Junkman” Kennedy. Bill is in the studio as well, telling great stories about his years at Ace. There is a Kickstarter campaign that ends today at 3PM to raise money to support the film. Please consider donating.

Enjoy.
