Chasms tonight at Warm Leatherette

Chasms record release party tonight at subMission!

Set to be released on Dream Recordings, Chasms is “the dark, swirling project of San Francisco-based songwriter Jess Labrador. Alongside collaborator Shannon Madden, Labrador crafts mesmerizing percussive dirges carved out by damaged percussion and hypnotizing guitars. Drawing upon influences like 4AD’s 1980s roster and Creation Records shoegaze classics, Chasms douses each melancholic track with blistering heaviness, making nods to doom, drone, black metal and industrial music.”

Warm Leatherette danz partie tonight at SUB-Mission


Tonight the Mission’s only dance nite devoted to dark dirges and subaltern urges returns to Sub-mission. Here’s what they’ve got to say -

“For our April edition, Warm Leatherette is firing up its body machinery for an all-DJ night of recorded synth bedlam. Your Warm Leatherette Resident Selectors will present mixes of the finest minimal electronics and synth punk, while inviting you to gaze long and hard into the inky depths with a guest DJ set from BIXU, Chief Curator at kindred spirit party H O LES.”

Rsvp or something if you want right here.


Black Marble rolling into the Mission tonight

















As we transition from crystal based bands to marble based bands, Brooklyn’s hypnagogic heroes, Black Marble head over to Warm Leatherette tonight for some synth driven post-punk, perhaps reminiscent of SF’s early 80s Voice Farm. Catch them this evening at the SUB/Mission venue on Mission and 19th.

Retro resto blast from the past and more from

Here‘s a blast from before the bust of ’01. When Slanted Door used to be on Valencia and places like Mangiafuoco on Guerrero used to offer basic Italian grub and grog (“It has chianti and what else do you need in an Italian restaurant”).

Benders was Sacrifice, serving up rum ribs and voodoo pasta in a tiki setting (“Don’t ask about how this purgatorial “tiki lounge” fits in, it just does”).

Booze was referred to as liquids and Amnesia charged a whopping $2 for live shows. Over at The Uptown a good jukebox was defined as one stocked with Dylan and Morphine, but beers were $3 and the dude next to you could probably tip you off on a well priced nitrous tank.

The current de-gentrified Club Veintiséis on Mission near 26th was the gentrified 26 Mix, a “sound bar” offering up a high quality listening experience while you sipped on your suds à la Tokyo style bars which feature a premium soundsystem and choice djs.

Bonus interview with dj Spesh aka “dj Special K” of club QOÖL fame right here, who will surely get a kick out of this decade old frosty picture we’ve unearthed.
