Last weekend, I got an education in commuting to and from the parties in San Francisco. I live about 35 miles (56 km) south of the city. On Sunday, I headed up to Devotion
, a weekly at The End Up
, at the request of a friend. Turns out she had plans to stay in the city (instead of heading south like she usually does), so I caught SamTrans 397
home. Not only was the bus on time, it was pretty fast (I thought it would be 2.5 hours). Armed with the knowledge that I can catch the bus at 20 after the hour through the small hours of the morning, I can go out whenever and wherever I feel like. So, without further ado, here is what I might do this weekend.
Friday night (September 10)
I’ve been invited to a party in San José, which I might attend. Christian Intrigue
and Danny Evans
are spinning at a place called Blue Monkey
at San Fernando and South First.
It looks like Om
is returning to Remedy
with monthly in October and this Friday’s party features Ben Watts
in a special event. Expect this cover to be about $20 a head, but also expect it to go off.
Saturday night (September 11)
In a strange stroke of circumstances, the party I’m most interested in this weekend is on Saturday night. This party is called Fool Us Twice?
and is at DNA Lounge
. A politically-oriented party, this shindig features a serious line-up — Ming & FS
(live), Miss Honey Dijon
, Michael Tello
, Ren the Vinyl Archaeologist
, and more. This party will go into the very wee hours and only costs $5. I know where I’m gonna be.
So, where are you gonna be?
