Stroll past the crowds mobbed outside Ruby Skye and, hidden behind an unmarked door, you'll find Slide - so named for one optional method of getting down to the dancefloor area: back in the old Prohibition era, patrons visiting this address would ride a slide down to a hidden house of debauchery named Coffee Dan's. (Today's less adventurous souls can just take the stairs, if they so choose, and passively partake in the Coffee Dan's experience by watching Al Jolson's The Jazz Singer.) Lots of gleaming wood harks back to those speakeasy days when swells would sneak illicit drinks and dance a few Charlestons, but don't expect F. Scott and Zelda types swinging to Jazz Age classics. Slide is more Puff Daddy than Jay Gatsby, and the DJs' selections of Top 40, hip-hop, and house music reflect it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
