Weekend Party Preview: Disco Love and Cosmic Dance
This weekend we suggest you get soaked in the potential sauna of Underground S.F.'s oft-smokin' dancefloor with a handful of disco's most dedicated lovers, and go on a cosmic journey with a few of San Francisco's retro-minded music-makers. Just remember: Having fun is all up to you.
Saturday, August 7
What: Gemini Disco w/ DJs Derrick Love, Vin Sol, and Conor
Where: Underground SF
When: 10 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Why: San Francisco's premiere monthly disco jump-off is back to help San Franciscans celebrate their extroverted selves. To properly do so, No Way Back resident DJ Conor will be guest mixing classic tunes alongside residents Derrick Love and Vin Sol. Patrons can expect the usual quality decor and a dancefloor full of our city's brightest and hottest. In the Gemini crew's own words, "YOU COULD SAY IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZING OR GREAT BUT I PREFER USING MADE UP WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE LIKE: BALALLZORS, XASTHRATATASTIC, STUPERCULOR or maybe BALLS TO THE WALL CRAZY." Uh, yeah, that's what we're saying.
What: Autobahn w/ The Beat Broker, Jonas Reinhardt, and DJ Tristes Tropiques
Where: KoKo Cocktails
When: 9 p.m. - 2 a.m.
Why: As its Kraftwerk-referencing title implies, the recently christened Autobahn party is a celebration of vintage, electronic-leaning dance genres such as krautrock, Italo-disco, post-punk, and all retro-futuristic explorations beyond. Certainly, there are no better local artists than The Beat Broker and Jonas Reinhardt to bring out such illustrious jams. And with resident DJ Tristes Tropiques calling the shots, this Sunday-night shindig is likely to become one the city's best monthlies.
