As legend has it, in 2006 the Mayor of San Francisco, one Gavin Newsome, unwittingly dropped the world into the dastardly klutches of klowns by declaring April 1st forever to be recognized across the universe as ...
Even more amusing, there was no coercion, payola, strong-arming, exploitation, sexploitation, malevolence, surreptitiousness, etc & so forth, in the making of the kommercial. Or so legend has it.
Be that as it may or may not be, as March 31st oozes into April 1st a most bombastic, barred-holds-none banquet of bubblebouncing beatitude with the original bohemianite Kings of Klown-Fi and their konspiring kompatriots SHALL ensue, like or not and back again! Your most favorable outcome will be realized if and only if you take it upon yourself to don your finest and filthiest of formal folly wear and join us for a rare and celebratory episode of absurdity in absolution!

Behold Gooferman, an ever-morphing micro circus of klown-fi and wanton circus performers built on an entirely unique bedrock of breakbeat, funk, drum & bass, reggaeton, rock, hip hop, and whirled beat, all parlayed to the audiences of the world by a new-fangled, super-styled breed of klown.
Gooferman’s performed throughout the US — including festival appearances at Outside Lands, Electric Daisy Carnival, Bumbershoot, Symbiosis Gathering, Lightning In A Bottle, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Vegoose, Download Festival, Burning Man, Lagunitas Beer Circus, and the 2008 944 Superbowl VIP Party — while purveying their signature klown-fi through endless locally and regionally slotted high-octane, micro-circus spectacles both above- and underground (including SF’s acclaimed Bohemian Carnival, with co-host and frequent collaborator, the Vau de Vire Society). They’ve opened for 50 Cent and Wyclef Jean, performed with Paul Oakenfold, collaborated with Angelo Moore (of Fishbone), and shared billing with the likes of Primus, Spoon, Ween, Flaming Lips, G Love & Special Sauce, Dave Matthews, Gogol Bordello, Beats Antique, and Devotchka, among others.
