Oh, the smell of playa dust is in the air! Three Burning Man-related events and fun in the Tenderoin are all on the schedule for this Saturday.
The Jaded Gay DJ Recommends: Funky Dust! Underground Fundraiser for The Opulent Temple
All your fave Opulent Temple DJs like Syd Gris, Smoove, Icon, Hoj, Dulce Vita, Nathan Vain, Jeffrey Allen, & Astro spinning dirty house, electro, and breaks at a secret underground location. Arrive early, as they'll be closing the doors when they hit capacity. First 250 to arrive will be entered into a raffle to win a free Burning Man ticket.
10PM - all night
$15 playafied, $20 normal
Secret location, check the website for more info the day of the event.
Precompression: Official Burning Man Kick-Off Party at 55o Barneveld
Artists, flames, DJs, the whole playa experience minus the heat and the dust, brought to one of the best venues in the city. My friend Aaron Neonbunny (Bunny Jam) will be spinning an early set in the main room, so get there and check him out.
8PM - 5AM
$10 before 10pm; after 10pm: $15 in costume; $20 no costume
NIIMBY Roots to Roof Fundraiser for the Steampunk Treehouse (Emeryville)
If you're in the East Bay this should be a total blast. Lots of performances, with beats provided by The Space Cowboys and the Unimog.

NIMBY Warehouse, 1649 28th Street, Emeryville
Green Gorilla Lounge Presents No Fucking Requests Ever at Club 222

FREE before 10:30p, $10 after
Club 222, 222 Hyde Street
Gun Club at Deco Lounge
I guess Ryan Poulson is just going to walk down the street after his set at Club 222. Super space, well worth it for just that alone, but I'm sure the residents will also lay down some groovy ElectroTechnoHouse sounds.

No cover mentioned
Deco Lounge, 51o Larkin at Turk
