Pride was just last week and already things are getting crazy again, with Burning Man fundraisers and all-night techno parties, oh my!
Weeklies and Bar Nights
This new party at The Cinch features "electro-burlesque," "filthy go-go boys" and "circus acts." Well, that's quite a bit of entertainment right there. With DJ Malakai, I believe that they're going for an electro groove, and this is a fun place to hang out on the Polkstrasse, so go check it out for something different.
9PM - Close (whatever that means)

The Cinch, 1723 Polk between Clay and Washington
Drunk and Horny
Sorta like those high school parties you'd wished you'd had. Get drunk, flirt with boys, and dance to good-time party standards. Reliable, easy-going, and a short stumble home. Check out my review of Drunk and Horny.
9PMish - 2.00AM (with maybe an afterparty)
Underground SF, 424 Haight Street x Webster
Frisco Disco at The Transfer
This night just recently started up and I haven't had a chance to check it out yet, but with tunes provided by the likes of Jefrodesiac and Richie Panic, and Lady Meleksah as the cruise director, there's some great potential for a good time. This Saturday is even Richie Panic's birthday!

9.00PM - 2.00AM
The Transfer, Church at Market
Monthlies and One-Offs
Filter SF at Fat City
Another monthly installment of techno from the Bay Area Beat Drop crew, this time featuring Joel Mull and Seth Troxler. Marke B. of the San Francisco Bay Guardian told me that the last one was off the hook, so I'm going to try and see for myself what these kids are up to.
$15 before 11PM, $20 after, $10 after 2AM
9.30 - 6.00AM
Fat City, 314 11th Street at Folsom
Opulent Temple Fundraiser "Audible from Space" at DNA Lounge
Tonight Opulent Temple goes trance and techno with two rooms at the DNA, bringing in the likes of Syd Gris, Dutch, Atum, Sentient, and Spesh.
$10 in playa gear, $15 otherwise
10.00PM - 6.30ish AM
DNA Lounge, 375 11th Street (if you don't dig it there's FilterSF right down the street, and vice-versa)
Deep End Fundraiser at The End Up
For all the house afficianados this is definitely the place to be tonight. If you don't catch Syd Gris at Opulent Temple maybe you can catch him here, along with Aaron Pope, Shooey, and many others.
10.00PM - NOON! on Sunday (Jesus Christ people, what ARE you on?)
The End Up, Sixth at Harrison
The Grind at The Cat Club
Here's your gay guys dancing with their shirts off option. The Cat Club is a fun space, and guest Sam Labelle is the owner of Soundworks. I heard Sam DJ at the now-defunct Detour a couple times and he definitely goes for a harder, grittier beat. Sean Greene is resident, I only heard him once at Dirty when it was at The Stud - pretty standard diva tribal house.
$10 before 11, $15 after
10.00PM - "late"
The Cat Club, 1990 Folsom at 8th
