Two fun, fun, fun one-offs for you this week, with each one being so potentially fun I had difficulty deciding which one to make my recommendation for this week. Eventually techno and art won out over psytrance, but I think you can't go wrong with either choice this week.
The Jaded Gay DJ Recommends: I'm Out at the Gray Area Gallery
The Gray Area Gallery is one of those little secrets I just found out about, and this blowout party to close their old space before moving to the 'Loin promises to be a gathering of some of the grooviest techno kids in San Francisco: Safety Scissors, C.L.A.W.S., and the kid Marke B. of the SFBG SuperEgo column tells me is the guy to watch, Jason Kendig, among others. New works by artists John Blanco, Alex Heilbron, Peter Petroschko, Anthony Desimone, and Sarah Wylie Ammerman will be on display as well.
