DJ Mark Farina Will Not Be Kicked Off the Decks at Mighty This Weekend
Following a June 2 incident in Las Vegas in which he was barred from performing a scheduled DJ set at the nightclub Marquee -- because, he was told, the crowd was sick of house music -- San Francisco club Mighty is showing its support for local DJ Mark Farina with this "Team Farina" flyer.
"My liaison said manager was getting complaints from table service crowd," Farina tweeted about the incident last weekend. He added in another message that he didn't get to even start his set before being told that he couldn't play. "Apparently too much house for this Vegas crowd," Farina tweeted.
Not only will Mighty make sure Farina gets to play his entire set this weekend, management will not even suggest to him what to spin. So what happened in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Farina is set to play with DJs Miguel Migs and Julius Papp at the Salted anniversary party on Saturday, June 9 at Mighty. Advance tickets are $20. But before that, he's ironically scheduled to return to Vegas today (June 7) to play at the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan as part of the EDMBiz Conference. Here's hoping that crowd lets this well-known S.F. DJ play whatever he wants.
