ODYSSEY in the Public Works Loft (161 Erie St., SF)
Friday July 26, 2013
9:30pm - 3:30am | 21+ | $10 | Payment Optional before 1030pm
█ We're Baaack! █
It's been a minute. But we're here, we're (mostly) queer, and we're ready to set sail on a voyage of unbridled music, dance, art, and hedonism. It's been a while, so I've set things up to make sure we knock it out of the park! :)
The rotation this time will feature Sunshine Jones (of Dubtribe Soundsystem), one of the finest acts ever to grace the Odyssey stage (and a longtime dance music innovator who happens to be located in San Francisco). The other spot on the rotation will be a tag team between two of my favorite Odyssey DJs, Stanley Frank and Robert Jeffrey, whose Monday night party at Underground SF, Viennetta Discotheque, is one of the best kept secrets SF has to offer, and seems to only be getting better with time. I trust these three individuals with the reigns and I can't wait to DJ with all of them.
We will have face painting (and possibly also decor/art) by the amazing Kate Cleaves (more info below), and as always, non-stop psychedelic visuals by the hometown hero and master, Donovan Drummond.
The Loft at Public Works is my favorite LEGAL venue in San Francisco, these DJs are some of my favorite DJs, and we all know YOU are some of my favorite people on the planet earth.
LETS THROW DOWN!!
█ Sunshine Jones ( Treehouse Muzique ) █
Sunshine has been producing electronic music since 1985, he lives in San Francisco, and frustrates us to no end because he insists on calling absolutely everything and anything you can syncopate “house music” and closes his eyes and smiles when we start dividing everything up into sub-genres. He performs live worldwide as a King Street Sounds recording artist, broadcasts a monthly digital transmission called Sunday Soul, and never stops touring with Dubtribe. The best gig of his life was at Deep Space in New York City, at Cielo, with FK. The second best gig is a tie without about 20 other amazing nights.
His discography includes production credits on more than 200 12″ singles, 25 full length albums.
His remix, rework, and re edit credits include more than 100 titles.
He has released 9 full length albums with Dubtribe Sound System and 3 solo albums as Sunshine Jones.
I think it's worth adding that his last appearance at Odyssey was maybe one of the best night's of music we've EVER had. His closing set was one of the best hours of music I've heard in my life and I'm INCREDIBLY LUCKY to have him back.

█ Stanley Frank & Robert Jeffrey (Viennetta Discotheque) █
If you haven't caught these guys around San Francisco, it's time to reconsider your nightlife plans. They have been DJing up a storm, whether it's Fag Fridays, Ms White, Bearracuda, Daytime Realness, or their own party, Viennetta Discotheque, at Underground SF in the lower Haight.
They bring music, energy and flavor to their DJing that few can match. Which is why they have each played Odyssey multiple times on their own, and once together.
They are amazing, and not to be missed. You can check out some video of Stanley tearing up Odyssey here:

█ Donovan's LightsOut Lightshow █
Donovan Drummond is one of the longest running and most cherished lightshow artists in the history of dance music (and especially extra-legal dance music events), doing the visuals for legendary parties such as Wicked, The Gathering, and tons more, including nightclubs like Townsend, and more recently Monarch and Public Works.
He's a creative force of nature, and a master of color, light and mood. He has been my in-house lightshow wizard for dozens of parties, and I couldn't be luckier to have him.
█ Facepaint and Otherworldy Art by Kate A. Cleaves █
Kate is a serious talent -- her distinctive hand and artistic vision can be recognized quickly and at distance.
She is a VORACIOUS and amazing facepainter, and we will have her decked out with a booth to paint the faces of our fabulous party people at their leisure during the night.http://www.katecleaves.com/
Don't miss it!
