2. As You Like It presents Tiger & Woods and Lovefingers @ BeatBox

Friday, Aug. 31, 10 p.m. - 4 a.m

Disco heads are in for a dose of euphoria this Friday at As You Like It's latest offering. This week's edition is a special celebration -- a birthday event for co-founder Jeremy Linden -- that will feature some of the party's favorite previous guests. Headlining the night is Tiger & Woods, the shadowy golf-flavored disco re-edit duo that lit up dancefloors last year with its loopy debut LP Through the Green. Listen to "Gin Nation" and read our write-up of the outfit's floor-shaking debut appearance in S.F. last year. Also on the bill is DJ Lovefingers, the musical curator behind the phenomenal -- but sadly, copyright-neutered --Lovefingers.org, ESP Institute label, and Black Disco parties in LA. As a DJ he doesn't stray away from the weird; in fact, he revels in it, with an eclectic style straight out of the Balearic/disco-not-disco/cosmic leftfield. Check out this mix he recently recorded at Aoyama Tunnel in Tokyo.

1. Lights Down Low presents Body High @ 222 Hyde

Saturday, Sept. 1, 10 p.m. - 2 a.m.

"The Ritual is Complete. All the crystals are charged. We laid down upon the alter [sic] and entered the Astral Plane allowing the spirit of...." Er, I'll just stop quoting right there and let you click on over to the event's Facebook page for the full boilerplate. But don't let the New Age terminology turn you off -- this one's a must-do event for dancers and club kids addicted to the shuffling sound of "bass" music. The L.A.-based Body High label/collective is made up of some of the genre's most dedicated practitioners, with an overall style that stays skipping while weaving in a subtler vein of old-school club cool. If that sounds intriguing, then this party ought to offer a near-full spectrum of the label's direction, with sets by DJ Dodger Stadium (aka label heads Jerome Potter and Samo Sound Boy), LOL Boys (rising stars in American dance music; check out "Changes Ft. Heart Streets"), and Floyd Campbell (listen to "Multipass" and "Taped"). Support, as always, comes from the full roster of LDL residents.

  • 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.'"
