On Thursday, February 3rd, join us for a night of comedy shorts that are (somehow?) all centered around sex and drinking. We’re pleased as punch to also present 2011 official Sundance premiere “Excuse Me” by Duncan Birmingham, and 2011 official Slamdance selection, “Bottle” by Kirsten Lepore.
In honor of the theme, we invite you to create your own mixtape (it can, and probably should, be on CD) to bring and swap with your fellow CSSFers. Bring a mix, get a mix!
Plus: Raffle prizes! Our buddies at Brew Holster Cult, and H&M are heaping on the love with fantastic freebies, plus, a very special Valentines Day package, including sexy treats from our favorite lovers of pleasure, Good Vibrations.
Thursday February 3, 7:30pm
Show starts at 8pm
Gray Area Foundation For The Arts (55 Taylor St at Turk St)
$5 at the door

Highlights from CS:SF’s Drunken Mixtape
Is it raining inside? As soon as we walked in to GAFFTA, we were greeted with the sound of rain on a steel roof, even though it was a gorgeous evening in San Francisco. The sound was part of the amazing work of ZIMOUN, a producer of kinetic, sonic sculptures which feature armies of mechanical entities that form worlds both uniform and chaotic. Intrigued? Check the video after the jump or better yet, take a trip down to Gray Area. The exhibit will be up through February 26th.
Wait…is that for your BEER?
The lovely people at Brew Holster Cult donated a lovingly hand-crafted beer holster for the raffle. What’s better than hip holding your beer so you can gesticulate wildly while telling stories? Nothing. NOTHING! (We also learned that one of the proprieters of BHC is also a member of the all-female cover band, AC/Dshe. Which is awesome in general.)
Sand and Snow and True Love.
Unquestionably, the house-down-bringer was BOTTLE by Kirsten Lepore, a Slamdance Grand Jury winner. Check out the piece on-line to have your heart warmed. Kirsten is quite talented and an all around a cool gal, and we look forward to seeing more from her in the future.
The gift that keeps stylishly giving.
H&M hooked up a 25% gift card that can be used over and over again on multiple purchases through the summertime. The sweetest part was that we’re pretty sure the pretty lady who won this one was already dressed in H&M from head to toe. Dreams do come true!
My mixtape can beat up your mixtape!
Give a mixtape, get a mix tape. That was the only direction, and folks got super involved, some even making awesome covers and bringing two or four for their fellow CS:SF community. Everyone who participated left with a new slew of music created randomly and especially for them.
Standing Room Only! For the first time in our four-month history, CS:SF sold out! The fact that we were standing-room only didn’t bother the late-comers, however. Folks were laughing just as hard standing up as they were sitting down.
Good Vibes for everyone, tra la la.
We combined local favorite Good Vibrations along with Lila B. Flower Designs for a savory and sweet V-day package. The famed pleasure shop did not disappoint, providing beaucoup toys for your, her, his, or all of the aforementioned’s pleasure. And, because we care, everybody left with a 15% off gift card to Good Vibrations!
*Speaking of Good Vibes, you have just a couple of months to conceive, shoot, and edit your “art film” for the fifth annual Indie Erotic Film Fest submission deadline. Show San Francisco the sexy time you like when the festival opens at the Castro Theater in September!
FAK! is hard at work prepping for next month’s screening, a drink-a-long (what? come find out!) Thursday, March 3rd. 7:30 @ GAFFTA. See you then!
