Full details for the show here.
Almost exactly two years ago, a Beastie Boys cover band from Texas or something came through SF and played a set at the Knockout. They were okay, but the real star of the show was DJ Jamie Jams of Debaser, who opened and closed the proceedings with selections from his exhaustive collection of songs famously sampled by the Beasties. This Friday, he does it again.
Plus, the American Tripps crew has some other reasons for a Beastie Boys party:
We’re doing our first party in NYC later this month (May 31st) at PIPS in Williamsburg, so we thought what better way to get in gear than with a BEASTIE BOYS NIGHT right here in SF? No sleep ’til Brooklyn!!!!!
So we booked the award-winning DJ JAMIE JAMS of Debaser (’90s night) and Last Nite (’00s night) fame, and he’s spent the last few days putting together the perfect Beasties-themed set, full of hits by the boys themselves as well as lots of the songs whose *samples* provide the backbone for many of the most beloved Beastie jams.
And then we booked special guest bartender JAY BEAMAN (of Dear Mom and Thieves Tavern), and he’ll be slinging Beasties-themed drink specials!!!!!!! (Including BRASS MONKEYS and A BOTTLE OF CHATEAU NEUF DE PAPE!)
Into it! Click here to RSVP and invite your friends, and listen to some tracks Jamie’s thrown up on the wall as a preview!
Love that Wam Bam! (Ping Pong Nite is: “2 ping pong tables, soul DJs, every Thursday at El Rio, 9-midnight, free.”)
Mostly it’s about Mikal and his songwriting process, and the making the of the new album (which is streaming now on NPR). Watch:
Also, the video accompanies a newly released compilation, produced by Dr. Pepper and Adult Swim, which also features Thee Oh Sees, the Gories, the Black Lips, King Tuff and more.
If this looks like a blast to you, and I can’t imagine why it wouldn’t, consider attending this month’s Haçeteria, tonight at Slate Bar.
For this edition of our monthly party in the Lower Haight, we asked DJ Tristes Tropiques (Haçeteria SF) to put together a Manchester-themed set (featuring New Order, the Smiths, the Fall, and other acts from those heady dayz).
If you’ve never seen one of the best live shows the city has to offer, tonight’s your last chance. Get thee there.
