Sunday, May 1, 7pm
If you’re like me, and I know you are, then you love a fine night of stage performance in an intimate setting. Luckily for you San Francisco offers many fine places to indulge in this fetish. You naughty radio listener, you. Anyway, the Mission District has without a doubt, the BEST place to see a stage play, or a bad movie: The Dark Room Theater. Located at 2263 Mission St., between 18th and 19th streets. The Dark Room has been around since 2005, hosting adapted stage performances of classic films such as: The Shining, Caddyshack, Life of Brian, Star Wars, the Ten Commandments (I was the voice of God), many Twilight Zone episodes, original plays like Emperor Norton and Zippy the Pinhead, as well as Sunday nights Bad Movie Night, which features a movie and commentary from three “talented” hosts with mics, but also encourages audience participation. Think MST3K, but way better. They host many sketch comedy groups, as well as stand up comedy too. I love this place. We are so lucky to have The Dark Room in SF.
From their website:
The Dark Room is your one-stop shop for comedy, theater, events, entertainment, rehearsal space and recording studio facilities (both pre- and post-production).
The proprietor of The Dark Room, Jim Fourniadis, will be on my show Monday night, 8-10pm, talking about The Dark Room Theater, as well as his days in the east coast punk band Rats of Unusual Size, where he was the front man and lead guitarist. We’ll play lots of music and talk about lots of great SF underground entertainment history, as well as too many in-jokes you won’t understand. We hope you laugh anyway.
Tune in Monday night, 8-10PM (PDT) on Radio Valencia, 87.9FM in SF, http://www.radiovalencia.fm
