Death Guild Bids Adieu to Glas Kat, Moves to DNA at End of October

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2008 at 3:37 PM


One of the city's longest-running club events, Death Guild, is leaving its home of nearly 15 years. Although it originally started at long-defunct venue The Pit (where AsiaSF is now), in 1994 Death Guild moved to 520 4th Street and pretty much never left. Even after the venue was sold, remodeled, and changed its name from Trocadero Transfer to the Glas Kat at the beginning of this decade, Death Guild remained a weekly staple until its final night, which happens this upcoming Monday, Oct. 20. The following Monday, Oct. 27, Death Guild moves across SoMa to the DNA Lounge — where, ironically, it had held exactly one event before settling into its eventual 4th Street home. Special guest DJ for the DNA inaugural will be Ronan Harris of trancey EBM popsters VNV Nation; as at the Glas Kat, doors open at 9:30 p.m, the cover is $3-$5, and ages 18 & up are all welcome. (In short, the only difference will be the lack of a smoke-filled fishtank in which to get your cancer fix.) For more information, visit the websites for Death Guild or the DNA Lounge. — J. Graham

  • 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.'"
