Ah, something for everybody this Friday, whether you're a breaks freak, techno monster, or loungey house head.
Bar Nights and Weeklies
Charlie Horse at the Cinch
Best place to go out and have a cheap drink while being entertained by drag queen antics. Recently voted Best Drag Show in San Francisco by the SF Weekly! Music by DJ Dirty Knees and Bearzbub is more rock and new-wave oriented, but at least it won't interfere with your conversation. Check out my latest review of Charlie Horse at The Cinch.
Fag Fridays at The EndUp
Reliable, if not all that exciting, but it goes all night, expect to pay around $20 to get in and to dance to pretty typical San Francisco deep house.
FUK Werk Fridays Happy Hour at 111 Minna
A new minimal techno happy hour in downtown, yee-haa! Check out my review of Fuk Werk Fridays.
One-Offs and Monthlies
Names, darling, names! Cut Chemist, Bassnectar, the Space Cowboys, the whole world of San Francisco breaks. . . if only it wasn't at 1015. $15 Pre-sales. Check out my reveiw of Club 1015.
The Jaded Gay DJ Recommends: Ritchie Hawtin and Magda at Mighty
Okay, seriously, there's not much that can really compete with this event. I'll be there with my buds fer sure.
9PM - 4AM, $25 pre-sales.
Garth and Jeno Back2Back at Club 222
So maybe you're looking for something a bit more chill for your Friday evening - then go check out two of San Francisco's finest DJs spining "leftfield disco" in a very cool space.
10PM - 2AM, $10
Lucky Pierre at The Stud
I've been trying to make it out to this event for the past three months since it has great MySpace pics, and I'm down with any gay bar night that stretches out beyond the typical musical fare of disco and poptronica (looks like there's some overlap here with the kids from The Workout and Lights Down Low). Unfortunately, Hawtin trumps anything else for me this time out, but this is probably your best bet for a fun night of gay clubbing if that's what you're looking for.
10PM - 3AM
