Who's there? XXXY, Eats Everything, Beautiful Swimmers, DJ Lengua, Murk,  more

XXXY hits the Lights Down Low party on Sat/10

SUPER EGO Hey ya'll, here are some primo parties I'm digging this week (and I just added some more great shindigs here) -- remember to tap-tap-tap on the second stall door to the left and say, "Hi!" Just a wee reminder: for a lot more insanity, hit up where you'll find a huge list of my favorite weekly and monthly parties. Hi!




Lovely As You Like It techno party crew founder Jeremy Bispo's birthday means he gets his pick of talent: hard-driving Minneapolis minimal tech-soul jock DVS1, jazzy Israeli duo JuJu & Jordash, Carlos Souffront, MossMoss, Rich Korach. After party starts at 6am at 222 Hyde.

Fri/9, 10pm-5:30am, $10–$15, $5 all night for Pisces. Beatbox, 314 11th St., SF.




Canny duo give disco and rare groove samples a hallucinatory '90s feel that sometimes borders on sexily slowed-down tribal house, sometimes wormhole disco. Sapphire Slows, Magic Touch, and DJ Pickpockets round off the latest Donuts Party (yes there are donuts!) lineup.

Fri/9, 9 p.m.-3am, $10. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF.




Bristol, UK's Daniel Pearce really did eat everything with last year's delicious and ubiquitous "Entrance Song" that welded tech-house to bass drops, with a canny Maxwell bedroom-soul sample floated atop. Unsurprisingly, SF's likeminded dirtybird label signed him right away. here's his local debut.

Fri/9, 10 p.m., $15–$20. Monarch, 101 Sixth St., SF.




Salsa dancing, food trucks, Dogpatch love? Heck yes. This new weekly at cafe Cocomo offers salsa and bachata dance lessons, food tastings, and live music — the kickoff features salsa band Avance and some fiery flamenco on the huge back patio. Very summery. This party has a lot going on, so check out the website below for more details.

Fri/9 and every Friday, 6:30 p.m., $15. Cafe Cocomo, 650 Indiana, SF.




As noted above, 222 Hyde has reopened its doors after an extensive remodel (more about that after I black out there a couple times). New party series Realtime focuses on live electronic performances: this hot bearish dub techno South Africa-via-NYCer kicks it off.

Sat/10, 9 p.m., $10 before 11pm, $15 after. 222 Hyde, SF. Facebook invite




Heavy contemporary cumbia vibes from the LA remixer and producer, bassed-up with dub effects and hot sonic surprises. He's at the monthly Tormenta Tropical joint bringing some Latin heat to your cusp of spring.

Sat/10, 10 p.m., $10. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF.





XXXY at Lights Down Low is actually at Monarch not public works.
