Music Serenading transexuals Peaches Does Herself at the Toronto International Film Festival
After going through a recent brief spate of listening to
Canadian electroclash artist Peaches, and in particular her first album " The Teaches of Peaches," my rad girlfriend apparently signed up for Peaches' email list because today she got an alert from the freaky-deaky, AA/XXX Canuck.
In her message, Peaches announces that a film version of her 2011 stage musical, "
Peaches Does Herself," will be premiering this month at the Toronto International Film Festival. It's an obscene, somewhat self-referential story about a young woman who begins making extremely dirty, overtly sexualized and shocking electronic music, quickly graduates to full blown fame, and falls in love with "a beautiful she-male." It's a very Peaches kind of tale and is shamelessly weird. Comm The Quest of Champions Saturday, July 22: Noon-6pm Arroyo Del Oso Golf Course
