Your Saturday Guide for September 6, 2008

Wow, with no more Frisco Disco, and no more Drunk and Horny (yep, not even as a monthly), the Saturday night listings are starting to look a little sparse! And that's even before I start cutting out the stuff that I wouldn't go to in a million years.

Bistrotheque with Ken Vulsion at Cafe Flore
I've been remiss in not previously mentioning Ken Vulsion of Honey Sound System's Bistrotheque at Cafe Flore on Satuday evenings. A great place to go have a bite, warm up with a couple drinks, and groove along with Ken.
6PM - 12AM
Cafe Flore, 2298 Market Street x Noe

Bearracuda at Deco Lounge
For bears and those who love them. With DJ Rotten Robbie. This week: "underbear" party (really, will the puns never stop?)
9PM - 3AM
Deco Lounge, 510 Larkin x Turk

Monthlies and One Offs

Kontrol at the End Up
With special guest Dan Curtin from Berlin. Check out my recent review of Kontrol.
10PM - 6AM
FREE before 11, $20 after
The End Up, 6th x Harrison

Trans Am at Club Eight
Rock/punk/indie music from resident Dirty Knees, usually with a band performing as well. Check out my review of Trans Am.
10PM - 2AM
Club Eight, 1151 Folsom x Eighth.

Bob Mould and Rich Morel present Blowoff at Slim's
Okay, this is how it's described in an event listing elsewhere: "Bob Mould and Rich Morel bring their indie dance club with a bearish clientele to San Francisco. " Personally, I think San Francisco needs another bear party about as much as it needs another diva pop/hip hop party, but I'm much more interested in what they do for the music rather than what kind of guys show up for it. These parties have been huge in DC, and the one they brought to New York tallied up 1200 people, so this could be quite an event that's well worth checking out.
10PM - 2AM
$15 (buy tickets online through the Slim's site)
Slim's, 333 11th Street x Folsom

Curious how Blowoff turned out... it seemed like there was not quite the buzz they needed, and they shouldn't have scheduled on the same night as Bearracuda. I didn't see people out flyering for it at the Hairrison bear street fair the week before.

yeah, I'd like to know myself. I was at Bearracuda to support my friend DJ Donimo, and while I'm not a regular attendee, it seemed to me that it was a pretty decent-sized crowd (so to speak), though there was talk of it being a smaller turn-out because of Blow-off.

I didn't know about Blow-off until about Thursday myself, didn't see any flyers or anything for it in the Casto, and it seemed pretty expensive to me ($15) for a four hour party (10PM - 2AM). Anybody go who can give us a report? I'd really like to know what the music was like.
