Reminder: Gay Shame Meetings at Modern Times @ Sat Jul 31 5:30pm - 7pm (Queer Things)

Gay Shame Meetings at Modern Times

GAY SHAME is a Virus in the System. We are committed to a queer extravaganza that brings direct action to astounding levels of theatricality. We will not be satisfied with a commercialized gay identity that denies the intrinsic links between queer struggle and challenging power. We seek nothing less than a new queer activism that foregrounds race, class, gender and sexuality, to counter the self-serving
"values" of gay consumerism and the increasingly hypocritical left. We are dedicated to fighting the rabid assimilationist monster with a devastating mobilization of queer brilliance. GAY SHAME is a celebration of resistance: all are welcome. GAY SHAME meets every Saturday in the Tede Mathews Reading Room of Modern Times Bookstore @ 888 Valencia btw 19th + 20th. Meeting time is 5:30PM, which means that people begin to arrive at 5:30PM and we start the meeting no later than 5:45PM. In addition, we often hold smaller meetings throughout the week to plan specific actions and activities. http://www.gayshamesf.org

About Violator

Released twenty years ago in 1990, Depeche Mode's seventh studio album continued a commercial and artistic flirtation with the American west, the guitar, the synth, and the sampler, all while stretching the structural form of the pop song.

Violator comprises nine songs, two un-indexed experimental "interludes," and four singles: "Personal Jesus," "Enjoy the Silence," "Policy of Truth," and "World in My Eyes." The album has sold 13.5 million copies to date, making it DM's biggest seller, as well as one of Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." All of the songs are composed by Martin L. Gore, a combination of recluse and exhibitionist.

"Blue Dress" is really about Martin wearing the dress, not the implied second person. Seen in this manner, "Blue Dress" attempts to elucidate a sexual fetish much in the same vein as "Strangelove" and "Master and Servant."

The demo version of "Enjoy the Silence" suggests the song was intended to be the next "Somebody" before Alan Wilder's production pumped the simple chord progression to dance club intensity.

"Personal Jesus" continued both the use of guitar and the homoerotic buddy/savior fixation of "Never Let Me Down Again." It followed in the twangy footsteps of their unexpected cover of "Route 66" that had been encouraged by their American label and parlayed into an alterative radio hit.

"Clean" features an echoic homage to Pink Floyd's "One of These Days."

The album remains to this day both popular and enigmatic, an unlikely crossover that remains influential to this day.
