St. Stupid’s Day Parade, After, After Party

St. Stupid's Day Parade, After, After Party

A giant St. Stupid’s Day Parade, After, After Party (here’s the event flyer) is taking place this Saturday afternoon (April 1st) at everyone’s favorite junkyard/performance venue, Ace Auto Dismantling. The location alone is reason enough to come to this show, but in addition to that, line-up of performers is amazing. Here are the full details:

When: April 1st, 2006
Where: ACE Junkyard, 2555 McKinnon St
Time: 4pm – 11pm (Performers: START @ 4:20!)
What: St. Stupid’s Day Parade After, After Party!

Here ye, here ye, all you stupid people, be prepared for a HUGE line up of Music, Entertainment and Mayhem to fascinate, thrill and amuse. For those of you who don’t know, the St. Stupid’s Day parade is an American Institution, now in it’s 28th year. Every year, rain or shine on April 1st, Bishop Joey provides wholesome entertainment for the good folks of the Bay Area in Downtown San Francisco. Come down to the parade, but, save some room for more stuff later.

A fun filled extravaganza guaranteed to titillate all your senses (and then some) and provide hours of entertainment for one and all. There will be a dizzying array of bands, performers and other gratifications. Bishop Joey from the First Church of the Last Laugh will be presiding, assisted by other San Francisco icons such as: Dr. Hal (Ask Dr. Hal), Michael Peppe (Michael Peppe), Professor David Apocalypse and plenty of surprise guests (so surprising we don’t even know who they are!). They are sure to keep us amused and bemused.

But, as if that is not enough, there will be many musical choices providing a multitude of cacophonous delights, including some of the most unusual, entertaining and bizarre arrangements, including; Fluff Grrl, Evolution Control Committee (ECC), Mongoloid, Los Banos (Cyclecide Bike Rodeo Band), Jesus Fucking Christ, Violent Discharge, Deranged Pussy, Esmerelda Strange and North of Penguin!

Also for all you kids, kids at heart, and people who just want to have an out of body experience, Heavy Pedal Cyclecide Bike Rodeo will provide some thrills and chills with their wacky and nifty original bikes and rides! There will also be plenty of libations available at the “Rock Star Bar” trade with your lovely hosts Flash and Victoria and DJ Fox and DJ Big Daddy will be spinning some tunes for the heck of it. All this and oh so much more, all for YOUR pleasure!

The doors (as they are) will open at 4:00pm and show starts at 4:20pm (wink, wink!). The fun continues through 11pm. A mere $8 fee gets you in the door ($7 if in costume). This will all take place at the venerable ACE Junkyard which is located at 2555 McKinnon St (near Bayshore), probably SF’s most unusual and coolest venue. Accessible by MUNI (lines 9 and 24, go behind the Burger King) and major freeway exits. DON’T be fooled by cheap imitations, this is THE place to be on April Fools Day and THE place to go after the parade! An event NOT to be missed, hope to see you all there!
