Saturday night the great Grace Jones played a rare show to one lucky audience at the Fox Theater in Oakland before heading to L.A. to do another show at the Hollywood Bowl Sunday night. Jones is doing a small tour to promote her new memoir, titled I'll Never Write My Memoirs, and at 67 she is reportedly just as provocative, wild, and sultry on stage as ever.

As the Chronicle says in a rave review of the show, "she remains a remarkably relevant cultural figure," and describes a concert unlike most of the fare that the Fox plays host to. Singing renditions of her late 70s/early 80s disco hits like “Nightclubbing,” “Walking in the Rain,” “My Jamaican Guy,” an her cover of Roxy Music's "Love is the Drug," she wore Keith Haring-inspired body paint and swapped outfits constantly, revealing a parade of "elaborate sartorial creation[s] that made her look part insect, part alien."

She performed “My Jamaican Guy” wearing an open poncho and polka dot dildo, dangling her leg over the platform railing while bending her body as far back as it could go. During “Nipple to the Bottle,” she casually grabbed her bare left breast, shook it at the crowd and sang, “You suck too much.”

She also, naturally, pulled out her hula hoop for “Slave to the Rhythm,” keeping the thing spinning for the entire number, much like she did at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. And during "Pull Up to the Bumper” she got right down into the audience and wandered around.

As writer and friend of SFist Jack Shamama says, "All she wore (mostly) was a corset! Her outfit was very East Village circa Summer '95." And he says, it "was completely amazing and cathartic and beautiful and inspiring" and "It's definitely on the list of best shows of my life."
