Party, Get Loaded, With the Supervisors -- For Haiti, For Haiti!

Party! Party! For Haiti! For Haiti!
  • Party! Party! For Haiti! For Haiti!
Come on, you know you want to get drunk with Eric Mar and tell him he looks like a Modigliani painting of a San Francisco supervisor. You want to get so fit-shaced that you can work up the gumption to make that quip you've been saving about Ross Mirkarimi's vest. And, yes, a little booze might go a long way in helping convince Sean Elsbernd to join you in holding Chris Daly's head in the toilet.

Well, here's your chance. And to make things even better -- it's all for Haiti.

The Board of Supervisors has announced a Haiti relief fund-raiser from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5. For a suggested donation of $20, you can finally live your dreams of drinking your elected representatives under the table while helping earthquake victims (assuming that's the stuff of dreams).

SF Weekly's calls to the number the supes listed for

"information" led to Supervisor John Avalos' office. When asked how

Avalos became the host of party central, his legislative aide, Frances

Hsieh, noted that it's because "John throws the best party."

Just about every supervisor is expected to attend -- so don't tell your anecdotes too loudly; you never know who'll be listening in. Mayor Gavin Newsom -- who has been very publicly feuding with Avalos of late -- has also been invited to attend.

Our calls to Newsom's press office have not been returned, so it's unclear if the mayor will take the supes up on their invitation. He certainly hasn't deigned to drop in on them at work.

Finally, it should be noted that Avalos and Newsom are not Facebook friends. But, then again, it doesn't appear Newsom has any Facebook friends. He only has "fans." And that's nice -- but fans do not give you a ride to the airport.

  • 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.'"
