What: Dirtybird Fall Classic
When: 9 p.m. – 4 a.m.
Why: Going on for six years now, Dirtybird is one of San Francisco's most prolific labels. The brainchild of Claude VonStroke, Dirtybird is famous for putting out a ton of chart topping singles like VonStroke's own “Deep Throat.” Though the label is loved throughout the world, nowhere supports it better than its hometown. These quarterly parties command a loyal following of open-minded partygoers addicted to the label's genre-crossing tunes. This season's edition features Claude VonStroke, Worthy, Christian Martin, and Justin Martin. As is the case with these things, expect to hear a lot of new and unreleased material from the Dirtybird camp, as well as plenty of old favorites. Also worth mentioning is the Funktion One sound system at Mezzanine, which makes it easily one of the best clubs in the city for electronic dance music.
