San Cha 

A glamorous provocateur and exhibitionist.

Few things are off limits for singer, songwriter, and performance artist San Cha, whose onstage persona is something like a glamorous, high-femme Sid Vicious. The interdisciplinary musician made a name for herself in Oakland as a member of the queer electro-pop group Daddie$ Pla$tik, which combined a punk ethos with a loud, gender-bending club kid aesthetic that the band developed in the Bay Area’s drag scene. San Cha performs solo as well, and at one of her last shows before she left the Bay Area for an extended stay in Mexico and LA, she played a set wearing a white wedding dress before stripping down to sequined hot pants to sing a darkwave Madonna cover. A provocateur and exhibitionist, she joins The Lovemakers, The Trims, Irising, and Vainheim on stage at 924 Gilman on December 4.
