On the first Tuesday of each month, SOMArts Cultural Center presents The News, featuring new, queer work by Bay Area artists. The News is a monthly cabaret evening that spotlights 10-minute or less performance pieces, experiments, and works in progress by pre-selected solo artists, groups, or troupes.
On Tuesday, February 7, Phatima Rude will guest-host a very special edition of The News to commemorate the 5-year anniversary of the series’ founding!
Don’t miss this night of celebration featuring incredible artists Evan Johnson, Peter Griggs, Jillian Gnarling, Jimmy Swear, and wild card Peter Max Lawrence!
Phatima Rude is a semi-living legend, gender-fluid performance artist with a penchant for the absurdity of life. Rude uses the dialect of drag to manifest the art of life.
Stay tuned for more information on the performing artists and a special surprise to celebrate 5 years of The News at SOMArts!

Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
