Dark Room is San Francisco’s queer dark wave, industrial punk party that takes place in South of Market club The Stud. This weekend, creator and resident DJ Le Perv hosted their second annual Siouxsie Sioux tribute night featuring the best in what he describes as “dark drag.” Legends of the stage like Bay Area performance artist Fauxnique, half of electro hop duo Double Duchess Krylon Superstar, relative newcomer Saturn Rising and Lady Bear, who acts in SF’s current drag rendition of Sex and the City all did their best Siousxie numbers. But the homage to Ms. Sioux was not only on stage. The crowd was representing with its best eyeliner looks, mesh tops and various items of goth apparel to channel the sensational energy of the “Hong Kong Garden” singer.
