Its a big week for Housepitality as they rock a full lineup to lead us into the last official month of summer. It's Wednesday now, so even if you thought you were still tired from campout or other shenanigans, this lineup will make you think again. Tonight's lineup is full of some of San Francisco's most famous natives. Tone of Arc is a producer/vocalist duo who produce mixes for Fabric and play favorite SF events like Stompy + Sunset New Years parties. Dave Aju, another local hero, has now moved to Berlin, and is using the city of techno to his advantage as he has since joined the roster of Noze's French label, Circus Company and regularly hits up spots like Berlin's Weekend club to showcase his hip-hop influenced vocal style of house. The fun doesn't stop there, with Pillowtalk's Sammy D in the mix and Housepitality friend Michael Tello filling out the bill, its hard to believe this is a Wednesday night show, not to mention OUR Wednesday night show. See you there. Don't sleep yet. (ML)

Event: Magda & Vincenzo
Venue: Public Works
DJs: Magda, Vincenzo, Mossmoss, Mark Slee
Music: techno, house, tech-house
Cover: $13-20
Magda's visits to San Francisco always excite me - she's an excellent DJ, and it's no surprise why. She grew up in Detroit, Technoland, USA, opened up her career by touring with Richie Hawtin, and ended up living in Berlin, Technoland, Germany. These days, she's known for her longstanding contributions to the Minus crew - key innovators of the minimal techno sound - and for her own much-respected label, Items & Things. Last time I saw her, she was playing an underground like she owned the place. I'm sure this time it'll be no different. Excellent support on the main floor provided by none other than Mossmoss. In the loft will be Mobilee Records artist Vincenzo, laying down beats on the housier side of things, and Mark Slee. (AO)

Joining him will be DJ Eworc, from Celtic Chaos, as well as DJ Dutch and DJ Brian Williams from White Ocean. Also worth mentioning - Celtic Chaos sets up camp on the playa with a castle.

An absolute anthem writer, Julio Bashmore rose to fame quick as can be with hits like "Battle for Middle You", "Au Seve", and his more recent work with Jessie Ware. Though his solo work has slowed down a bit in more recent years, his skills haven't gone away anywhere if my hearing him at a TV Lounge afterparty in Detroit is anything to judge. Nick Monaco promises to lay down some of his sultry house sounds as well, which you may have heard if you've ever found yourself at one of his WERD parties. Also laying down the grooves will be your host DJ Dials, Tyrel Williams, and Richie Panic. Lookin to be a night of some good talent! (AO)
