Loco Dice (born Dice Corleone) currently resides in Brooklyn but hails from Düsseldorf, home of original German techno robots Kraftwerk, an obvious influence on this DJ/producer. He's better known among other techno artists than among the general public; Dice's few spare yet wickedly bouncy singles have been released on the labels of genre stars like Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, and Josh Wink. Fans of those artists' epic dance floor tracks and DJ sets won't be disappointed when Loco Dice is joined by his production partner Martin Buttrich for a special performance on Friday, Oct. 12, at Mighty at 9 p.m. Admission is $12-15; call 762-0151 or visit for more info. — Tamara Palmer

When your family isn't around and church is no longer a realistic option, this city offers surrogate clans of sexual degenerates with whom you can while away your Sundays – or at least every second Sunday. At Jet in the Castro, BeBe Sweetbriar hosts "Launch," a rollicking, aviation-themed, midday party meant to smooth out (or extend) turbulent hangovers by plunging you right back into cavernous darkness with your queer brethren. Go-go boys and "flight attendant" Artemis Chase entertain guests, and DJ Strano drops gay dance beats while your estranged relatives in Topeka pray that you'll stop spending the Lord's day drinking with half-naked men and transvestites. "Launch" takes place this Sunday, Oct. 14, at Jet from 3 to 8 p.m.; visit for more info. — Evan James

  • 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.'"
