This Saturday, London-based DJ/producer Jamie Odell, aka
Jimpster, makes a rare San Francisco appearance at
"Joypad," a monthly event hosted by Blasthaus.
Enthusiasts of electronic jazz, house, and techno will
all find something worthwhile in Odell's concoctions.
While he'll likely use his DJ set to showcase new and
favorite songs from the catalog of his 7-year-old label
Freerange Records, as well as bits of his forthcoming
Jimpster album, Odell is no genre snob or over-the-top
self-promoter: He shies from the spotlight by also
recording under another alias, Audiomontage, and by
playing keyboards for the low-key live-improvisational
electronic band the Bays. Despite strong credentials,
Odell never takes himself too seriously, so there's no
doubt he has some cheeky party jams planned.
"Joypad" takes place on Dec. 13 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.
at Milk, 1840 Haight (at Stanyan), S.F. Admission is
$10 in advance, $12 at the door; go to www.blasthaus.co
