Forgotten Opera, 2004
Pepe Le Peu and Penelope
Low and behold, this nice young man looked like Kevin Spacey, was dressed as a Roman Guard from Jesus Christ Superstar, and had PEPE LE PEU tattooed on his ass. Such synchronicity!
"Think Pacific Heights meets Burning Man meets the Castro. Imagine dancing in a 25,000 square foot warehouse space decked out in opera sets and props, and seeing a professional opera diva appear in the distance to belt out house remixed aria by Gavin Hardkiss followed by the operetta from The Fifth Element. The Forgotten was an incredible resurgence of the bohemian scene in San Francisco on a huge scale."
