Although celebrated in SF for close to 20 years and genuine music lovers at heart, the Triple Threat DJ Crew and Mr. E have both been wanting a club night and a venue free from playing songs that have long outstayed their welcome or have been forced into the heads of club goers via Clear Chanel radio. The yearn to do something a little different is what their party "The Foundation" is built upon.

Their commitment to music and staying true to their roots was a gamble but the bravery has paid off. On any first Saturday of the month hear Fela Kuti, Mayer Hawthorne, classic New York hip-hop, to soulful house while a truly diverse crowd of people dance and enjoy themselves. Watching people from all walks of life party together is a rarity in S.F.'s homogeneous nightlife and what's even more rare is that their only request isn't for something they heard on the way to the club, a shout-out on the mic, or "something good" but the simple and innocent question of "Why can't there be more parties like this?".

This month at The Foundation, we' d like to welcome two dynamite DJs from the SweaterFunk crew, Marky aka Proof and Mamabear! For those of you who aren't familar with the SweaterFunk movement, this is your chance to see, hear and feel the sounds that have been rockin' the Chinatown's underground spot, Li-Po Lounge. From funk, soul and boogie - the SF crew moves the party.

From the underground to the overground, we are very excited to have 2 members of the SweaterFunk family bless The Foundation. We'll also have our resident party rockers in the mix. DJs - Apollo, Shortkut and Mr. E will also be contributing to the Funkmosphere!

You might not want to miss this party. Dancing is mandatory. "We want the funk, gotta' have the funk!"

Remember, experience is everything!
