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.

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.
