Barnaby Monk 5 a.m., Aug. 24
Peaches @ Belly Up!
Peaches is DJing at Belly Up (143 S Cedros Ave) tonight in Solana Beach. If you don't know who Peaches is, she's a Berlin-based Canadian gender-bender performance artist who makes sexually explicit electronic music. Also, watch this video (one of her clean songs):
She's also written songs for Christina Aguilea's Bionic album, and if you've seen Lost in Translation at least twice you'll remember the scene where Bill Murray is waiting for ScarJo at a strip club. That song playing is a Peaches song. Why do I love Peaches? Because she's mind-bendingly weird and excitingly perverse. I asked Meryl Klemow of Belly Up the same question. "Just like the fruit, I find her sweet and satisfying yet slightly disgusting."
The show starts at 9 p.m. and doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $22.
