La Crème de la Disco Dancing 

Wednesday, Oct 14 2009
As another enduring San Francisco warm season filled with gay-ish festivals draws to a close, party people hang up their threadbare technicolor tanktops, their adventurous jean cut-offs, and their sultry summer jams in favor of more subdued autumnal affairs. One such to-do is Bring Your Own Queer, a one-day fête featuring lovely local music makers and stage performers of the mincing indie persuasion. Carousing on the concourse unfolds to the beloved dance-inducing disco of queer DJ collective Honey Soundsystem, along with house music varietals by Rainbow Death Pony and DJ Black. Along with all of this bim-bom and booty-shaking is a fancy spread of live acts, including Excuses for Skipping, praised for brooding, pensive indie-rock; the Cartographers, dishing up glitchy pop electronica; and fun-loving queercore Lucky Jesus. From this alone you could faint from delight, but the revelry gets even more ripsnorting with ensemble burlesque from Diamond Daggers and an appearance by piñata-fisting provocateur and performance phenom La Chica Boom. Five hours knee-deep in an artsy showcase and dance party with independent-minded local tomcats and faygeles? Only in America!

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
