Hard French @ El Rio This Saturday

Jorge P. sent us a note about the inaugural event for a cool dance/BBQ party he’s throwing at El Rio:

The idea behind the event is that we want to modernize, takeover, revamp, trick out, revive, do up, the Outdoor Afternoon Dance Party Scene in the Mission… We want a party for everyone, a party, where drag queens mingle with lesbians, leather daddy’s soul dance with cholas, sharps share hot dogs with activists, jocks make out with twinks, brown meets white meets purple meets gay guy meets ladies meets q and everyone leaves with excited feelings for the next party.

The party is being Dj’d by Resident DJ newcomers and soul music wizards Dj Carnitas and DJ Brown Amy. They along with the rest of the Hard French crew are our music curators and throughout the summer, promise to bring it! with live bands, guest dj’s, performers and the like. All in the spirit of the maximum that is Mission SOUL Afternoon Dance and Food.

BBQ and Soul music! A bunch of subcultures which I’m not familiar with!! Sounds like a cool way to spend a Saturday. See the flyer for details.

Only thing is, I don’t know what the French have to do with it. Some say that the term “barbecue” comes from the French “barbe à queue, meaning “beard to tail” which sounds like how you would grill a hipster furry. That’s right, I made a crack about cannibalism, hipsters, and furries! If you were offended by all three simultaneously, we’d like to hear from you.

    I have no problem with this, aside from the whole DJ-[adjective]-[noun] thing, which I find repetitive and tedious. Carry on.

    since when have drag kings and lesbians not mingled?

  5. I’m offended that you think a hipster furry would settle for just one tail.

    Dang people, stop slingin the hate, check it out before you rag on it. It could be fn, and if it isn;t you still shouldn’t rag on it go out and do something that you think is better. What a waste of time. I’m there, and I think its going to be a great time.

    s.f needs more positive vibes.
    lighten up s.f. and dance
    or at least do something.

    this sounds like fun. i wished they would tell me what kind of music i’m going to be silently judging though.

    (i kinda feel like her name should be DJ Brown Army.)

    Soooo, this event turned out to be so much fun, that I am trolling the nets trying to find out if it’s gonna be on again this weekend.

    The music was fun (old school funk and soul, perfect for an afternoon); the company wasn’t too hip to let loose n’ dance; and who doesn’t love a BBQ?

    Done and done.

    I love this party! I went to the first one and then last month, had such a great time. Its been close to a DECADE or something since I had a good time like that. I just moved from Brooklyn after three amazing years there, the only hang up was howLAME the girl parties were in NY.

    the immediate differences worth noting back in SF:

    3.) The music is so good! I dont have to get trashed to help block out the fact that the music SUCKS!

    2.)I also like its not so HOMO and MALE CENTRIC. There is room for the ladies to breathe and for my hetro and homo flexible crew to just be.

    1.) Public Tranny is good! No parking issues or tickets!!!
