Aunt Charlie's Tubesteak Tenderloin

Really, the only place to get royally fucked up on Thursday nights is at Aunt Charlie’s Lounge where DJ Bus Station John’s weekly worship service, “Tubesteak Connection,” throws down ultra-rare ’70s and ’80s disco and alterna-beats in the bowels of the Tenderloin.

Whether posing at the bar, shaking ass on the dance floor, or jonesing in line for the single-occupancy bathroom, you might want to get there early -- John’s night gets crowded right-quick. Arriving sooner rather than fashionably late might help you take advantage of the abnormally cheap booze, catch possible Bambi Lake (§ion=24953) sightings, and enjoy the brief calm before the greasy gay hipster storm rains down come midnight. ($3, 9 p.m. – 2 a.m.)


If risking your precious life in the ninth circle of the Tenderloin isn’t your idea of fun (snob), then you might want to check out Club Six’s reggae-infused “Give Thankz” -- that is, before the places bids us adieu, mon. ($5, 9 p.m.-2 a.m.) --Brock Keeling (photo courtesy Julica da Costa via Wikipedia Commons)

  • 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.'"
