Fine Cut Devils

Dear ravers, metal heads, hipsters, goths, hippies and non-labeled,
Amazing pride weekend!
Highlights included randomly running into my friend Spiro and DJing in his front yard right next to Dolores park, witnessing an engagement made out in green lazer, hanging with the east bay peeps (miss you!) and DJing my butt off on a Funktion 1.. again. ;)
Friday, July 2nd
Opulent Temple Under Ground (!)

We're back in the underground with a new twist. This is at the same vibey spot we've done a few sweet gatherings in SF South of Market area .
Intimate space, phat sound. This one's an open party (ie, no 'membership' required), only a $10 cover, but to prevent over crowding and preserve the vibe you DO need a pre-sale to get the address and get in.

The beat don't stop

Dear bad ass mother fuckers,
I am so freakin' tired still from the Feather River Campout but it was totally worth the energy, drive and time. I played a dubstep set and then a couple hours later played a funky breaks set on Saturday. Sunday I played a 4 hour house set starting with techno, tech house and minimal and then moved to electro cuz it's so easy. I impressed some Friends and Family which is good because I would love to play their main campout.
In other news I just started a new job at an organic pie an ice cream shop called Chili Pies some come on by! I needed a little steady job and I'm still working as a stage hand with Stage 2 Design as well.
And on to the fun:
Lots of gigs are randomly popping up which is awesome because things had slowed down to almost nothing earlier. Here is the down low low down:
