Hanging out in the SOMA arrondissement this evening? Yes? Well, then, why not stop by Electric Works on Eighth Street for a photo exhibit by local photographer (and MOREboy) Brandon Norris. Known for his "outlandish and often debaucherous club photography, Norris has created a new body of work whose cast of characters is all too familiar" (that is to say, he snaps the shots of drunkards at Booty Call in the Castro), tonight "Norris ditches the constructed sets, the props, and the costumes in an attempt to expand on the deeper soul of his subjects."

You can check out some of his work at brandonnorrisphotography.com.

This evening's opening reception will also boast a performance by FACT/SF, a San Francisco-based contemporary dance-theater group. Which should prove interesting. And, sure, the place might be littered with stinky alteragays, but, God willing, there might be a little free wine to sooth the senses, not to mention the fine photography of Brandon Norris.

What: "A Sobering Affect: Queer Portraiture by Brandon Norris, Curated by Natalie Pavlovsky"
Where: Electric Works, 130 8th Street
When: Tonight, Thursday, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
