SantaCon 2017
It is time once again for that annual defiling of a pure and wholesome family-friendly holiday. Well, for some the connotations are different and those are the ones who don their best red n' whites and start drinking before the lazy freelancers even consider getting out of bed. The event wishes that you bring an unwrapped toy and wear full Santa or elf regalia to Union Square before the pub crawl commences. We like to believe that you Santas will do so. There's an official day party at Hawthorn near Union Square but we've known Club Six and Monarch to often host a bash as well as neighborhood-ly spots like Duboce Park and Alamo Square Park to be sites of debauchery and debateable good cheer. Just remember to respect authorities and non-Santas and we're sure you'll have a jolly good time. Date: Saturday, December 9, Time: all day, Place: Union Square (official), Cover: none, More Info (ML)

Event: Housepitality
Venue: F8
DJs: Beaner, C.L.A.W.S., Tasho, Guillermo
Music: tech-house, deep house
Cover: no cover w/RSVP, $5 presale on RA, $10 otherwise


Beaner is no stranger to San Francisco scenes. A friend of the town and a mainstay in the formative years of local clubbing and late nighting, he's moved on to Berlin where he was able to boast a residency at the (RIP) Bar 25 and the founding of his own label, La Mission (no relation to our warm SF hood) which is crowdfunded and political. While the songs released on that label can be about issues — and there are plenty of them to go around these days — he still plays a warm, deep tech house that will settle in perfectly at our weekly get down. Joining will be a bevy of artists from Squirells on Film, the local output from Solar and tonight's artist, C.L.A.W.S. (ML)

DJs: M.A.N.D.Y., Papa Lu
Music: tech-house, house
Cover: $10 presale
There is an air of mystery shrouding the true meaning behind the acronym of M.A.N.D.Y., an alias which embodies the mutual talents of childhood friends Philipp Jung and Patrick Bodmer. The pair readily indulges this curiosity by toying with various clever possibilities, including Me AND You, but the truth is likely a giggle under each of their talented breaths. P and P have carved a unique niche in electronic music by consistently selecting productions that induce their audience into a somatic frenzy. On the platform of their aptly titled Get Physical label, M.A.N.D.Y. has achieved massive success in colluding to create music that simply makes bodies move. Their foot stamping, hair flying passion is the ultimate expression of a dance music phenomenon for many years.
