Hera Sees Candy
Sister Hera Sees Candy is one of the newest members of the San Francisco house of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. One of her ministries is to spread joy, mischief and meaning through performance. It is through performing that the soul can both give and receive joy in the creation of a third, participatory and transcendent joy. This is what she hopes to bring with each of her performances and as a minister in the community. Her performance for Eve of NYE will include humour, trickery, and back-to-basics drag: glamour… face… emotion.

As an anthropologist and performance artist, Lúlu Stone strives to create fun, unique, and culturally relevant experiences for her audiences. She has been immersed in Tribal Fusion belly dance since 2011, and for the past year and a half she has had the honor of receiving the direct mentorship of internationally acclaimed Tribal Fusion artist Bevin Victoria. In 2013, she, Bevin, and Laura Blake co-founded Urban Nomad Tribal Fusion Dance Company. Later that year, she completed the Initiation Phase of Rachel Brice’s “8 Elements”. Additionally, she has studied with Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, Deb Rubin, April Rose, Ashley López, Onça O’Leary, Ela Rogers, and Sarah Jezebel Wood. She is also a member of Rachel Brice’s satellite studio, DaturaOnline, and she has recently begun to delve into studies of hip hop and classical Indian dance stylings.
Lúlu also has a background in Modern dance, guided by the mentorship of former Alvin Ailey member Jean Appolon, and has utilized Modern technique to cultivate her passion for dynamic and dramatic choreography. In 2013, she co-founded Boston’s first monthly theatrical belly dance event, Belly Dance Underground, and had the joy of bringing amazing performers from throughout the New England area (and in one case, all the way from India!) to dance in the show.

all your sins will be turned into mere fluff and everyone who wants to will get laid. A few gay anthems, some bumping booty-shakers and at least a few mixes you’ve never heard before. Prepare to indulge!
Underground Nomads resident and co-founder DJ Amar spent the early years of his DJ career playing with Cheb i Sabbah and subbing for him during his legendary Tuesday weekly at Nickies in the lower Haight. This is where he met the Sisters. Sr. Mable was a regular at Nickies. Amar started Underground Nomads as a way for Chebiji to connect with his local fans and to revive the Nickies-style weekly Outernational mix, keeping the music alive and sharing it with new audiences.
It was at Chebiji’s memorial at Dolores Park where Amar was reconnected with the Sisters, sharing a moment with Sr. Mary Timothy. Amar reached out to Timothy about doing an event together in honor of Chebiji, and planning for the EVE of NYE commenced. Since Underground Nomads has chosen to use 5th Tuesday as fundraisers for positive causes, Amar invited The Sisters to join together and be a part of the event. When we found out that Sr. Mable was coming to town from Malta, we made it a Welcome home party for her.
Amar will be playing a ‘Flashback’ set pulling out some old bangers that he and Cheb i Sabbah used to play back in the days at Nickies, fusing some of his new style – dedicated to Mable and in honor of Chebiji.
