Treasure Island Music Festival
After all the press (we're looking at you Bold Italic), you might be surprised that The Treasure Island Music Festival is actually happening this coming weekend. One of San Francisco's premiere musical events for mainstream indie, one of the more paradoxical music descriptions, takes place on the Windy Island for a two day period. Whether you're arriving on the illusive 108 Muni Bus, driving over with your friends, taking the free shuttle from Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, or taking that boat cruise, you'll sooner or later be dancing on Treasure Island to the likes of glitch producer Zedd, R&B sensation Janelle Monae, dream pop's wunderkind Washed Out, as well as triphop icons Massive Attack, to name only a few. While the festival is decidedly geared away from techno and house, there will be appearances from Disco Knights' DJ M3 and Anthony Mansfield. For those festival-obsessed of you out there, its good to know that festie season doesn't have to be over - especially when you live in the city where summer doesn't seem to happen at the appropriate times of the year. Don't forget to look away from your favorite stars onstage to catch one of the best views of the city skyline! Date: Oct 18-19 , Time: noon - 11pm, Place: Treasure Island , Cover: $90-$300, link More Info (ML)

Event: Housepitality 4 Year Anniversary
Venue: F8
DJs: Jeno Void, Sean Murray, Blue J, Tyrel Williams & Bai-ee
Music: house, tech-house
Cover: no cover b4 11pm w/out RSVP, otherwise $5, $10 after 11pm


For over 20 years Jeno has been one of the most sought-after DJs in San Francisco, bringing his psychedelic and funky house sound to generations of partygoers, from warehouses to beaches, under full moons or hot lights. For those who don't know, he's one of the founding members of the Wicked crew, along with fellow British adventurers Garth, Thomas, & Markie. These gents traveled over after falling in love with the 80s warehouse scene in London. They were looking for something a bit more groovy and found it in San Francisco (despite having to bring much of it themselves). This Wednesday you can experience a piece of SF's history on the decks of F8.

Event: Morning Gloryville - Rave Your Way Into the Day
Venue: Inner Mission
DJs: JOill, Rachel Torro
Music: tech-house, deep house
Cover: $15-25


For those of you that are morning songbirds (or maybe are just looking for some motivation to become one) San Francisco is now providing your answer! Going from 6:30am until 10:30am, Morning Gloryville is an opportunity to rave BEFORE you even have to go into the office - or whatever it is that you crazy ravers normally do during the day. Aside from music and a dance-encouraged club environment, the event provides you with all of your morning needs like free high-quality coffee, wake-up massages, fresh pressed juices and other breakfast items, not to mention the great music and costumed and pajama'd co-ravers (totallly better than co-workers, amirite?). The party also happens at one of San Francisco's best, yet most underused venues (in this writer's opinion), which is easily accessible from and to downtown and the Mission. Get ready to rave into the day. (ML)

Sunset and Blasthaus will host South African dance chart wunderkinds Goldfish this weekend for one of their world renowned live performances.

Goldfish's diverse range of styles traverses through house, funk, pop, and the sounds of earlier trip-hop groups like Massive Attack and Portishead. The two are perhaps most well known for breaking into the iTunes dance charts in 2010 with their single "Fort Knox", which was featured worldwide in a frustratingly cute music video for Kia. Goldfish is is joined by Brooklyn house DJ/producer Bit Funk, Los Angeles based electro artist Baron Von Luxxury, and San Francisco's own Matt Haze. (DF)

Event: 10 Year Anniv - Summer Sundays

Music: house
Cover: no cover b4 4pm
2004 is when David, Keith & Jenny took on this little corner bar, added all their love and created a home for an ever increasing family of pranksters, jesters and house-loving dancers. We like to call it our happy little tree house - with no secret knock required.

Event: DTE 3 Year Anniversary
Venue: Audio
DJs: [a]pendics shuffle, Bryan Zentz, Nikita, DTE residents
Music: techno, tech-house, deep house, minimal
Cover: $10-20
Can you believe its already been 3 years since Direct to Earth has been creating techno havens for the fans new and old of this sometimes distanciating sub-genre of electronic music. To celebrate this milestone, they're bringing a techno tradition to the Bay Area in a way that makes us scratch our heads as to why no one has done this before. Following in the footsteps of legendary techno club, Berghain, instead of offering just a Friday or Saturday party, DTE will have an entire day affair on Sunday, from noon until 2am on Monday morning. While it won't go to 10am Monday like it does in Berlin, we love the idea that you can party all day - which might be the only way to really allow your mind and body to get into the groove. The lineup is par for the course for DTE, with an emphasis not only on visiting talent from the upper echelons of techno and tech-house, but also on local talent that can rock the dancefloor as well, if not better, than some high profile DJs. Come see Max Gardner, Patrick Gil, Brian Knarfield and Bob Campbell tear it up as they always do. And as always, in the words of DTE "here's to techno, and here's to you". (ML)
