DJ Wam Bam Ashleyanne returns to American Tripps tonight at Pop’s!

S/W Ver: 96.B0.0AR

That’s a pic I took of Wam Bam Ashleyanne the night she deejayed our first ever American Tripps Halloween party, at the Secret Alley way back in 2011. It was one of the best parties ever!

Tonight she returns (for the first time in a while) to American Tripps (the “Berlin-style” ping pong night), which is now every Monday night at Pop’s, and it sounds like it’s gonna be a fun one:

I’m bringing only jammers tonight, spanning 60′s Soul & R&B hipshakers, French Psych stompers, and even some good time favorites like The Mummies, The Okmoniks, Tullycraft, and more! It’s a trash bag full of goodness!

RSVP and invite your friends!

Is this the most expensive pizza slice in SF?


To be fair there’s a LOT of stuff on that slice, and slices at Serrano’s are really more like two slices.

Anyway is there a more expensive slice in the city?

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
