La Crème de la Disco Dancing 

Wednesday, Oct 14 2009
As another enduring San Francisco warm season filled with gay-ish festivals draws to a close, party people hang up their threadbare technicolor tanktops, their adventurous jean cut-offs, and their sultry summer jams in favor of more subdued autumnal affairs. One such to-do is Bring Your Own Queer, a one-day fête featuring lovely local music makers and stage performers of the mincing indie persuasion. Carousing on the concourse unfolds to the beloved dance-inducing disco of queer DJ collective Honey Soundsystem, along with house music varietals by Rainbow Death Pony and DJ Black. Along with all of this bim-bom and booty-shaking is a fancy spread of live acts, including Excuses for Skipping, praised for brooding, pensive indie-rock; the Cartographers, dishing up glitchy pop electronica; and fun-loving queercore Lucky Jesus. From this alone you could faint from delight, but the revelry gets even more ripsnorting with ensemble burlesque from Diamond Daggers and an appearance by piñata-fisting provocateur and performance phenom La Chica Boom. Five hours knee-deep in an artsy showcase and dance party with independent-minded local tomcats and faygeles? Only in America!

  • 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.'"
