The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco’s Mission District is currently about  $3,500 per month. That means a renter needs to make almost $130,000 per year if she wants to spend just a third of her paycheck on rent. Singer-songwriter Candace Roberts doesn’t fall into that income bracket.

Shit & Champagne and Oasis.  Meet the man behind a show we can't name on public radio airwaves: Shit & Champagne - A Whitesploitation Comedy with Dance.  D'Arcy Drollinger is an actor, dancer, playwright, director and choreographer of many shows, and wrote and stars in Shit & Champagne, now at San Francisco's new bar and queer performance space, Oasis. Drollinger is also a partner in the new club, which opened New Year's Eve, and says its cabaret-style showroom and stage are "a dream come true" in this interview with Out in the Bay's Eric Jansen, 7pm PST Thursday 1/15. You'll also hear clips from S&C, and about D'Arcy's life, career and his weekly dance class for all ages, genders, shapes and abilities, Sexitude. (Eric goes, you can too!)
