Have a Divine Christmas

John Waters Christmas featuring Peaches @ UCLA’s Royce Hall
Saturday, December 17th

“Sultan of Sleaze”. Now that’s a billing! Baltimore’s greatest contribution to cinema (sorry Barry Levinson) is going back to college bringing what has now become an annual event to UCLA’s cavernous brick cathedral. Mr. Waters will provide a glimpse at the thrill of waking up on Christmas day sexually vulnerable with a hangover and unexplained stains on your couch. Simultaneously earnest and ironic Waters will bring some of the flavor of his recent Christmas compilation which features such classics as “Here Comes Fatty Claus” and “Santa Claus was a Black Man”. Adding to this queasy but festive sensation will be beloved “pro-sex feminist” Peaches (Is that really such an accomplishment?) playing records for strangers. Expect some wary ushers and bathroom attendants on red alert. Draw yourself a nice moustache and don’t forget your kitsch goggles so no one can see you roll your eyes.(SOC)
