What do you people do on Friday nights these days?

I always used to think of Thursdays as the “local’s Friday” in the Mission, since on actual Friday the neighborhood is inundated with revelers from other parts of the city and Bay area vomiting on sidewalks.  Of course, that was also back when Jack’s would host karaoke regularly on Thursdays, and just by walking around the Mission you would run into a friend who was on their way to a dance party or something and invited you along for the fun.

Thankfully, there’s a few places that have managed to retain their Friday magic, and the Knockout is definitely one of them.  Speaking of which, if you need me tonight, I’ll be swigging whiskey and sweating to the oldies on the dance floor.

Jello Biafra guest DJing Oldies Night this Friday

If you’ve always wondered what a soul version of “Holiday in Cambodia” might sound like, now’s your chance to find out!

Oldies Night tonight at the Knockout!

It’s the first Friday of the month, and you know what that means! And no, I’m not talking about some silly art walk.  It’s time to break out those saddle shoes and get your butt over to one of the best dance parties in town going off at the Knockout tonight!

Sadly, I just sprained my MCL playing soccer last weekend and the doctor said NO DANCING for 6-8 weeks, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fun!  Don’t forget to RSVP and invite your friends here.

Knockout gets KO’d

Someone must have been so amped to see DJ Avalos at Oldies Night tonight that they couldn’t bother with finding a parking space. Well, that and they also crazily reversed into the building and very nearly caused several instances of vehicular manslaughter. Of particular intrigue is the fact that no substances seemed to be involved.  No, this was sober driving at its worst.

According to our own Mike Chino who was one of those almost struck, “it came out of nowhere, very suddenly.” We’re very happy that Mike’s knees are still intact, and we implore the driver, who drove away 30 minutes later after a lengthy conversation with police, to please learn how to drive a car.
