Weekend Party Preview: Dirty Birds and Bassment Booty

Claude VonStroke with some bird.

People need to stop taking themselves so seriously when it comes to partying. Honestly, little is less fun than watching some straight-faced DJ and stoic club patron have a staring contest while your new favorite song blasts over the sound system. Music is great and all, but what use is being out at a flashy club or comfy dive on the weekend if no one is going to have stupid, crazy, what-the-hell-just-happened fun? So that's what these two parties are about: throwing caution, inhibitions, and dignity to the wolves, all in the name of having a fucking blast.

Friday, August 20

What:  Dirtybird presents Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Christian Martin, and Worthy

Where: Mezzanine
When: 9 p.m. – 4 a.m.
Why: San Francisco's resident house and techno badasses, the party-starting Dirtybird crew, know quite well how to throw an awesome dance party. If you've been to any of their other residencies at Mezzanine, you'll know what we're talking about. If you've never experienced the overwhelming bass grooves and head-smashing dance beats coming from the likes of label head Claude Von Stroke, brothers Justin and Christian Martin, and associate DJ/producer Worthy, well then now is your chance. And you could wonder to yourself, whatever would make this bombastic mini-rave any better? The answer: it goes until four in the morning, and it's free before 11 p.m. if you RSVP.
