Light Asylum, Miami Horror, Hercules, whips, chains, etc.: Lineup for Folsom announced

|

Folsom Street Fair: yes to fisting, whipping, piercing. But the September 29 event has also morphed, through the auspices of kicky executive director Demetri Moshoyannis and his crew, into a huge music festival as well, attracting a young and adventurous crowd who may not know they're into slings and harnesses -- yet.

("It's one of my favorite things," Demetri told me recently, "to watch newbies show up for the music, their eyes wide at what's going on around them. And then later to see them tied up or in thigh-high boots and a paddle or whatever.")

This year's main stage line-up is cute and true to Demetri's electro roots: Hercules and Love Affair, Miami Horror, Light Asylum, Icky Blossoms, the return of local all-drag rock band Pepper Spray, and more. Plus the dance area has Mark Moore from S'Express! (And insanely great and cute techno dude Boris.)

Full release, heh, after the jump. Oh and don't miss the awesome official Folsom "Deviants Arcade" party, happening within the fair itself (and afterwards), with Honey Soundsystem, Hard French, MATRIXXMAN, Olga T, Aaron Clark, and Boris. Eep!
