Well, that went by fast. A year ago, a couple dudes behind DJ/promotion outfit Epicsauce started Push the Feeling, a low-key party at the gritty, unheralded Lower Haight club Underground S.F. The monthly aimed to showcase some of the new dance and electronic music burbling up from outside of the regular club scene. A year later, the party has hosted the likes of Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick (spinning as his DJ alter ego, Les Sins), Thrill Jockey act High Places, and notable locals like Blackbird Blackbird and James & Evander. Next Friday, it celebrates its one-year anniversary with a headlining DJ set from one of the most reliably fun acts on the DFA label, YACHT.

Yes, that YACHT -- the L.A./Portland/Marfa, Tex., foursome who started a sleazy dance party at Outside Lands this year, and then came back a month later to open for Hot Chip at the Fox Theater. After such large billings, it should be interesting to see them DJ a dark, tight club like Underground S.F. Epicsauce residents YR Skull and the Epicsauce DJs will also be on hand to open things up as usual.

Unlike many editions of Push the Feeling, next week's isn't free -- but at $8, it's not exactly pricey, either.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
