Strippers, Escort, and New Year's Eve plans: Your Friday Morning Pre-Party

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2007 at 9:19 AM


So we survived the Turkey Holocaust, only to confront you, dammed reader and your voracious desire for news, culture and food entertainment this week. We gotta admit, our performance this post-Turkey Day week was a bit lackluster. So let's get trashed on Vicodin and tequila and forgot all about it, shall we?

Welcome to Your Friday Morning Pre-Party, I'm your host, Web Editor David Downs.

First off, this pre-party needs a coked-out, disco muppet vibe. So click on this youtube embed of the Brooklyn sex-funk 18-piece Escort, who play Mezzanine this weekend.

Feel that disco funk? Damn, that's stanky! Now, looking back on this week, we raise our pimp cups to :

--The Hustler Club, the San Francisco Firefighters, and their morally dubious way to help little kids. "Stripping for charity." Isn't that a repetitive statement?

-- Wu-Tang and their decent '8 Diagrams' leak. We got firsties, bitches!

-- And all the upcoming New Year's Eve parties that have been announced. Diplo vs Mars Volta vs Cake. Honestly, we'll probably end up at a house party doing crap Mission nose candy till dawn, but at least we have options.

Upcoming this weekend, SF Weekly's dance card has that filled-up feeling we just can't get from smaller, thinner weeks. We're stopping by:

-- Circus Oz, The Laughing at Gravity Tour at Cal

-- Iron and Wine at the Paramount

-- The Electric Art Gallery opening in SF

-- Comedians of Comedy at the Indy

-- Escort at Mezzanine

-- Coldhotcrash at Bottom of the Hill

-- Aimee Mann at Bimbos

-- Sharon Jones at Bimbos

-- Six Organs of Admittance at Amoeba

-- And Tegan and Sara at Zellerbach Auditorium

Which pretty much makes us the most happening kids in town, so suck it dry, Guardian and Chronicle. All your base are belong to us.

And that's a wrap for the pre-party. See you Monday with a wicked hangover. And keep those inane comments coming, you mutants! Every moment you spend with us is one less moment spent thinking about your own stupid, pointless lives. Because, hey, we're here to help.

"Ignorance is bless",

David Downs

Your Friday morning pre-party kicks off every Friday morning around 8 a.m. Because we are lushes. Send us your pics, videos, mp3s, events, and links if you want to be part of the party. If not, that's your bad.)

  • 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.'"
