Rhythm & Booze

rhythm

Blues for the Soul and Soul for the Blues. That’s what it’s all about This Thursday at Pops Bar with our new event RHYTHM & BOOZE. DJs Booker D and Slopoke play the records we love to hear: Blues 45’s, deep soul, hard funk and then some. These DJs pride themselves on life long collections of hard to find records. Join us for a night of powerful Soul Sides and Boozey Blues 45’s. Make it a double.

Don’t miss Alex Cameron opening for Thee Oh Sees tonight at the Chapel

He and his band totally stole the show last night. (But Thee Oh Sees ruled too.) Watch this video:

The show has been sold out for a while, but I’m sure you can find a way in.

It should come as no surprise that resident DJ Sonny Phono is starting up a night featuring the music of the California. Equal parts Northern and Southern California, local man on the go Sonny is known for throwing parties up and down the state. In SF you can catch his double header of The No Theme Super Dance Jam at Pops Bar on 5th Fridays as well as 5th Saturdays at Madrone Art Bar. We can’t wait to see what this seasoned DJ brings out for Friendly Fire, a night of all Cali Independent and Underground Music, this Thursday at Pops Bar!

Here’s something new! It’s Stinky’s al Fresco, a weekend-long block party just outside the Mission, starring some of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands ever! I mean, THE GORIES. (Your beloved Ty Segall masqueraded as them for Halloween in the Mission a few years back.)

Here’s the Saturday lineup:

  • The Gories

And a little bit about the Stinky’s team:

From the debased and deviant heads that devised that shotgun-marriage of rock and sleaze called Stinky’s Peepshow comes the next step in the evolution of live entertainment in San Francisco!

Naturally, the more evolved among you will select to attend Stinky’s al Fresco, where you can expect to enjoy smutty back-room scenarios dreamt-up by our city’s pervert avant-garde, and be smitten by the next generation of large & lovely go-go dancers as they shake their leg-meat to the jungle beat of rock n’ roll, punk, and soul.

Saturday (and weekend-long) tickets here. Sunday tickets here. SEE YOU THERE
