Kazbah's Holiday Cruise with H.O.S.H.
This Sunday - night of the Winter Solstice, The Kazbah returns with their 7th, and perhaps most unique fundraiser event - cruising The Bay aboard The San Francisco Spirit featuring two floors each with their own distinct sound, along with a level of production and signature vibe that you've come to expect from The Kazbah. Captaining the decks is German born Holger Behn aka H.O.S.H.. There are solid record labels and then there are recognizable musical collectives... brotherhoods who work together for the furthermost of electronic music. One such crew is based proudly in Hamburg; goes by the name of Diynamic and owes a large part of its success to H.O.S.H. First and foremost, H.O.S.H. considers himself to be a DJ, someone who prises the art of mixing records and sequencing journeys - preferably long ones - over anything else. Ask any of the people who have been lost in one of his residencies at the likes of Watergate in Berlin, Studio 80 in Amsterdam or Ego in Hamburg over the last few years, and they are unlikely to disagree. Local heroes Anthony Mansfield, Johnnie Walker, Bob Campbell, Papa Lu, and Mr Kazbah himself Ali will all keep both floors rockin'. Date: Sun 21st, Time: 5-10pm, Place: Pier 3, Cover: $70-80, link More Info

Fight For Your Right: A Beastie Boys Tribute Night
'Here's a little story I got to tell/about three bad brothers you know so well/It started way back in history/ with Ad-rock, MCA and me, Mike D." The San Francisco Jewish Film Festival is hosting a night dedicated to a group who truly made an impact on the music world. Back in the 80's, there were three Jewish boys who formed a group that would forever change the landscape of the rap world as we know it. These guys formed the Beastie Boys, a formidable rap trio who showed that yes, white boys do have rhythm and man can they rap! In their honor, the SFJFF brings together local musical groups to celebrate the Beastie Boys while also broadcasting landmark videos directed by fellow Jew Spike Jonze and the dearly departed Adam "MCA" Yaunch. Performing live is Felonious and Jazz Mafia, while DJ Cyclofunk spins rare Beastie B-sides, remixes and hip-hop beats. If you're a true Beastie Boy fan and like to fight for your right to party, then get to Public Works this Wednesday. Date: Wed 17th, Time: 8:30p-1:30am, Place: Public Works 161 Erie St, Cover: $10 presale, $15, link More Info (CQ)

Event: Black Magic Disko feat. Dance Spirit
Venue: F8
DJs: Dance Spirit, Jeniluv, QZEN
Music: house, techno, deep house, tech-house
Cover: $10-15
Dance Spirit are an upcoming duo that's been on fire these last couple of years. Hailing from LA, you can hear them on Mr. C's Superfreq label as well as the LA-based Culprit, putting out dancefloor-centric deep tech-house riddled with reflections on the more intangible things of life - all without sounding too cheesy, too. As an added bonus, QZEN, whose voice you've heard on 40 Thieves' "Don't Turn It Off, will be spinning along with friend and SF frequenter Jeniluv from LA, and in n the back room, you'll be treated to selections SF's very own Jason Greer and Mozhgan. The theme of the night is "Disko Punk Xmas", and costumes are encouraged, so if you did SantaCon this year and decided against it for the next, feel free take your suit to roll in the mud, get ripped and stressed - um, naturally, of course, ahem ahem - and perhaps adorn with some disco ball earrings or something.

Event: Dirtybird Quarterly
Venue: Mezzanine
DJs: J. Phlip, Justin Martin, Christian Martin, Worthy
Music: booty bass, ghetto house, tech-house
Cover: $10 b4 11pm, $20 after
Its that time of the year when San Francisco's arguably most famous collective takes to Mezzanine to give back to their local crowd what has made their crew so buzz-worthy over the past couple of years. A lot has happened between the free Dirtybird park parties, things like Claude VonStroke becoming a worldwide superstar, playing alongside Detroit legend Green Velvet (although VonStroke probably won't be at this event), J. Phlip closed out the Movement Festival in Detroit and began a world tour, Worthy seared The Playa once again with his hot jams, and whole crew took their parties on the go with events in places like Brooklyn and an upcoming New Year's event in the Chicago area. But what really makes these SF Dirtybird parties the best are the crowd of long-term dedicated fans who know just what to do four times a year when DB comes to Mezzanine: GET DOWN! (ML)

Event: Bananas
Venue: Underground SF
DJs: Austin Cesear, Leech, Guillame
Music: house, techno, deep house, tech-house
And Saturday's dose of local love will be brought to you by the new rave cave. This should be a night of warm but gritty house and acid vibes. Leech subscribes to the lovable, weird, left-field acid house sound of 100% Silk, something you can get a good taste for via his Winehouse EP - acid, jacking, and a bit euphoric at times. Austin Cesear, previously an Oakland local, now living in Brooklyn, has explored similar territory and has gone on to produce two albums and and a handful of well-received EPs, his live sets going especially hard. SF rez Guillaume will be laying acid as well, along with Ford Prefect and Steph Lee. Check it out! Should be good. Real good! (AO)

Event: Direct to Earth's Winter Wonderland Experience w/ Carl Craig
Venue: Monarch
DJs: Carl Craig, Max Gardner, Craig Campbell, Brian Knarfield
Music: Detroit techno, minimal
Carl Craig is easily one of the most important people in the global techno community. He is often hailed as the leader of the second wave of Detroit techno, following directly in the footsteps of the genre's forefathers, the Belleville Trio (aka Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson). Taking the formula of machines and future and adding touches of other genres, like soul and jazz, Craig began reshaping the sound of techno for years to come. The man never stopped, with his label Planet E Communications, and side projects like Innerzone Orchestra and countless worldwide tours. Such a techno stalwart is the perfect way for local techno outfit Direct to Earth to celebrate the holiday season. See luminary Craig play alongside DTE residents like Max Gardner and Brian Knarfield at this winter soiree that promises to turn the Monarch basement into a Winter Wonderland. Perhaps it won't feel too different from a Detroit winter.... (ML)

Event: On & On pres. Wankelmut
Venue: Hawthorne
DJs: Wankelmut, Rachel Torro, Eric Jacobs
Music: deep house
Cover: $15-20
Wankelmut is much more than a one-trick pony. Although his name has become synonymous with his ultra-hit, 'One Day/Reckoning Song', which spanned genres and appeared to appeal to just about all tastes, Wankelmut is more than just a one-hit wonder. Hi remix is simply indicative of his abilities to create emotive deep house that stems from his Berlin background and takes it to new heights. His sets, like his BBC1 Mix, are full of dance-friendly, heart-holding jams from artists familiar and strange alike. This former Groove Magazine Newcomer of the Year (2012) is carrying on, touring the world, and now making his first ever SF appearance at downtown's new Hawthorne club. Come and say "Willkommen"! (ML)

Event: Salted Holiday Party
Venue: Mighty
DJs: Miguel Migs, Julius Papp, Franky Boissy, Lisa Shaw on the mic
Music: house
Cover: $10 before 11, $15-$20 after
Salted is throwing down for the holidays this year with the familiar crew. They're back at the usual spot this time, Mighty. This time, they're doing it up extra special by bringing in Lisa Shaw to take the mic for the night. Residents Miguel Migs and Julius Papp will be throwing down, as per usual, and this time also alongside Franky Boissy, another San Francisco local with a penchant for classic house stylings. The holidays are a time meant to conjure feelings of warm and fuzzies, but sometimes that just doesn't happen! That unabashedly good-natured house that this crew likes to spin though, works year round, so you know where to go! (AO)

Event: WERD Solstice Toy Drive
Venue: Monarch
DJs: Joshua Iz, Kimmy Le Funk, Prehistoric Reptiles, Jesse Sizmo
Music: tech-house
Cover: no cover w/ toy donation
Giving can feel awesome in so many ways. Aside from the obvious joys of doing something nice for someone, especially in the holiday season, its great when you get rewarded for good deeds with a night of great grooves. Hand in your toy at the door and get ready for a night of adult play with sweet tech-house tunes from Chicago DJ Joshua Iz as well as WERD resident Kimmy Le Funk. It is winter solstice tonight, so add some light to the darkest night of the year.(ML)
