Don't Stop Believing: You Are Invited to Ashkon's 30th Birthday Party

Posted By on Tue, Nov 16, 2010 at 3:54 PM

By now, everyone in San Francisco, Texas, and probably everywhere else has heard of Ashkon Davaran, the charismatic dude behind the "Don't Stop Believing" anthem that helped cheer the SF Giants into a World Series victory this fall.

Well, Ashkon is turning 30 this Thursday. And to celebrate, he's gonna sing you his take on "Don't Stop Believing" -- and release a new mixtape.

Ashkon's birthday bash goes down at Manor West the night after next. But it won't be one of those just-get-drunk-and-piss-away-another-year type things. Ashkon will be performing his stuff -- "Don't Stop Believing" isn't his only song! -- and releasing a new mixtape, entitled "In the Booth." DJ Method will be there spinning, and drink specials will be doled out at the bar.

Here's your chance to work up a little liquid courage and tell Ashkon just how much you appreciated his musical contribution to this magical S.F. fall. Because 1.8 million YouTube views probably haven't said it clearly enough.

  • 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.'"
