It's on and poppin' this weekend!

My monthly Spindig Happy Hour party is this Friday at 330 Ritch Street, from 6 to 9 pm. After listening to NegroClash twice yesterday (Thanks, Ryan), I'm definitely in an '80s R&B and electro mood.

The recommended after-Spindig event is the Sugar Pie De Santo benefit party at the Elbo Room, presented by Groove Merchant. From DJ B.Cause: "San Francisco R&B queen Sugar Pie DeSanto lost everything when her Oakland apartment burned down October 26th of last year. Her husband died trying to fight the blaze. Help us give back to a lady who's given us so much, truly a Bay Area music legend. She will likely be in attendance that evening. 100% of proceeds will go to the the Sugar Pie Desanto Fund. If would like to simply donate, please contact Wells Fargo to make contributions: (510) 597-4210."

On Saturday, January 13th, Mesh Magazine's Gucci Time party returns to the Rickshaw Stop. The last one was crazy fun and this one promises to be bonkers. (Sorry, I just watched "The White Rapper Show.") To get in the mood, watch Kirb and Chris's "New Wave Thuggin" video (please!):

And look for them on an upcoming episode of VETV.

Mr. Fives Reunion Party Fri. 1/5/07!

If you EVER went to Mr. Fives back in the day, you HAVE to show out for the reunion!

From Michael O'Connor's (one of the "Fives") website: "While attending CAL, I helped to create an incredible multi-use arts and music space called MR. FIVES. MR. FIVES was located in a beautiful space on Rose St opposite from the front door of Zuni Cafe. The small business featured dancing with a beer and wine license but also showcased emerging playwrites, lecture series, live jazz (MR. Fives was where, in 1991, the Broun Fellinis, Charlie Hunter and Alphabet Soup played some of their first shows in the City ... when there really were no outlets for young jazz in the city). The space opened a little after I turned 21 and was my first involvement with establishing a small business. The business was incredibly successful and influenced the shifting idea of what an entertainment space could be about in San Francisco. In total there were 5 partners, a couple of whom were leaving SF and the group decided to close the space at the peak of its popularity."
