Peaches Christ Happy Hour Madness
and Barbarella on the Big Screen

I honestly can't think of a more wonderful way to indulge in utter fabulousness than tonight's double-feature of entirely unrelated camp nightlife content... Peaches Christ's Hellraiser Happy Hour at Mix Bar in celebration of a decade of the diva's decadence as hostess to SF's legendary Midnight Mass movie series and Barbarella playing at the Red Vic!

What more needs to be said about Barbarella that hasn't already been said? 1968's high-camp schlock magnum opus is perhaps the greatest comic-to-movie-adaptation ever made and is essential viewing for those who love their sci-fi on the sexy, un-intellectual side. Starring a bubble-headed fur-feather-and-leather covered Jane Fonda (pulse racing! knees getting weak!), the ultra-potent combination of this flick and Alex Raymond's gorgeous Flash Gordon comics made quite the impression on me as a young lad... and what a sweet zero-gravity mind-warping for my young brain to get!

Indulge thyself in these many scenes from the original comic by Jean-Claude Forest, sneak over to YouTube to check out the original movie trailer, or feast your eyes on this ultimate psychedelic sci-fi sex comedy on the big screen later tonight.

And don't forget to go show Peaches your happy hour love too!
