Rachel Lark and the Damaged Goods had an early Valentine's celebration at Brick and Mortar Music Hall on Saturday, February 10. The evening was a fusion of comedy, music, dance, and auctioning off feminist bachelors to raise money for Planned Parenthood.

Bay Area comedians Wonder Dave and Dominique Gelin were joined by Kate Willet (who will be featured in Netflix’s new comedy series later this year) to start the evening. Pole dancer Seánmicheal Polaris, also performed that night with a gravity-defying set. In between the comedy sets and dance was the auction of six feminist bachelors, the most eligible of which started a bidding war to sell for $225. Overall, more than $700 was raised to support Planned Parenthood.

The evening was closed out by Rachel Lark And the Damaged Goods, with a rollicking set of unique, quirky indie-pop music that was simultaneously fun, feminist, thought-provoking, and highly danceable. Check out the gallery below for some of the scenes from a night of passionate fun!
