Party Radar: SF Bay Area Nightlife January 21-27, 2015
Hella Gay is hella fun.

By Marke B. 

PARTY RADAR Forgive me for this quickie — I’ve been a wee bit distracted this week. But that means that I am ready to party. Yes, I will probably be at all 28 hours of this one party right here, after I funk the funk out at this other party right here.

And then I will go to all these other parties below and then I will basically die RIP. But first I will dance with you! And we will do weird things in the back room, possibly. Let’s go!


>>> TONY HUMPHRIES


One of the undisputed masters of house, Brooklyn’s “Hunp-in-the-Homefries” Humphries has been wowing us since 1981(!). Lately his sets have taken a more hypnotically soulful turn, with glowing results — but that good ol’ vocal bounce still remains. With David Harness and Tyrel Williams
Fri/23, 10pm-3am, $20 Might, 119 Mighty, SF. Tickets and info here

 

>>> DERRICK MAY


Meanwhile, the Detroit founder of techno will ne at Monarch — so you’ll have to choose between legends, sorry. My good friend Derrick long ago devoted himself to mind-warping DJ Jedi tricks, so get ready. Lately he’s jumped on the DJ-meets-orchestra trend, but on Friday he’ll be giving you fast and deep.
Fri/23, 9pm-3am, $10-$25. Monarch, 101 Sixth St., SF. Tickets and info here.

 

>>> BRENMAR + SASHA GO HARD


Heady, filthy bass-hop producer (with incredible hair btw) Brenmar comes from NYC homebase with rap sensation Sasha Go Hard to blow minds at based-goth party 120 Minutes. There will be such styles at this party.
Fri/23, 10pm, $15. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. Tickets and info here. 

 

>>>PSYCHEMAGIK


If you missed the sweet, laid-back vibes of last weekend’s Fleetmac Wood party, here’s something in a similar vein: This UK duo gently twists should and psych rock classics inside out to for something beautiful and communal.
Fri/23, 9:30pm-late, $20. Public Works, 161 Erie,  SF. Tickets and info here

 

>>> RIOT GRRR! SLEATER-KINNEY TRIBUTE
The best riot grrrl band in the universe (sorry Bikini Kill!) has returned with its first new album in forever, so of course our monthly bear party devoted to the rebellious, handmade sounds of the ’90s is celebrating. You did not know that we have a monthly bear party devoted to the ’90s riot grrrl movement? Well of course we do.
Fri/23, 8pm, free. Lone Star Saloon, 1354 Harrison, SF. More info here.

 

>>> SEXITUDE

While nightlife workouts have become all the rage (especially early in the morning, ugh), this jazzed-up, leg-warmed, body positive, effortlessly glamorous, dazzling ’80s dance routine-oriented bit of wonder is something else again. Starting this Friday, D’Arcy Drollinger brings her energetic brand of nightlife sweat ‘n glitter to the new Oasis. Dress to sweat, Olivia Newton John.
Fri/23, $7 ($5 with sexy workout look), 10pm. Oasis, 298 11th St, SF. More info here.

 

>>> BRANCHEZ

We are well into the sweet and cuddly phase of trap music/post-dubstep soul, and NY producer Branchez (who is so cute!) certainly brings more Majestic Casual than 2 Chainz. Raise your hands and scream for him to whip off his — sensitive, world-weary, pop-oriented — shirt. With G Jones and Jayceeoh
Fri/23, 10pm, $20. 1015 Folsom, SF. Tickets and more info here

 

>>> HELLA GAY
Hella cute, hella fun, hella queer, hella diverse, hella Oakland. And now the Hella Gayers want to welcome straight people, “play assholes” (?) and expand internationally. Hella weird! I’ve loved this party for years; it will be interesting to see what new direction it all takes. DJs Gstar, Fela Kutchii (who I adore), Balthasar, and more preside with the hippity and the hoppity.
Sat/24, 9pm, $10. Oakland. Check here for more details!

 

>>> LA GENTE

A “multilingual blend of reggae, cumbia, hip-hop, salsa, rock, and world music,” Rafael Bustamante’s live band unflaggingly tours the world and brings a party. If you feel like something warm and smooth this weekend, this would be the joint.
Sat/24, 8pm, $16-$40. Great American Music Hall, 859 O’Farrell, SF. More info and tickets here.

  4. Do people here realize that Sleater-Kinney is named after a STREET & off-ramp in Olympia? I didn’t either till I took a recent road trip (was not going there actually but noticed the sign on the freeway). BTW, imho, the entire state of WA ouside of SEA seems to be Deliverance territory….but that is jmho.

  5. I prefer L7, Babes in Toyland and Bikini Kill to Sleater Kinney, which is why I saw those back in the day and not SK. We have SK tickets for May, so that should be fun.

    Played “Babysitter’s On Acid” by the Lunachicks this weekend while doing housework chores, good times!

    Also, heard that L7 would reunite if we clap our faerie hands loud enough:
