Sunset Shines On The Vestry

VestryToday Sunset Shines on The Chapel’s restaurant, The Vestry. It’s is a Mission destination in its own right. The restaurant’s seasonal menu is influenced by cuisine from regions of France, Italy and the Mediterranean. The bar incorporates a range of spirits, house-made syrups and fresh ingredients to create exceptional handcrafted cocktails. We love The Vestry because their food is not only delicious but their location is so convenient for an outstanding array of live music next door at The Chapel. Also, they do a damn good brunch and bottomless mimosas. Don’t miss The Real BlockheadElaquent and Yppah at the Chapel on 9/13.

Sunset Shines On Yppah

yppah

Joe Corrales Jr. takes the name and shape of Yppah (pronounced “Yippah”) to create lush mix of beautiful electronica, breakbeat drums and samples with washed out melodies. Sunset loves Yppah’s ability to evoke a memory and veil your eyes with sweet nostalgia. He draws on his electronic music, psychedelic soul and rock influences to create ethereal soundscapes that capture our ears and our imagination. We want to shine a light on Yppah for his uniquely blended tunes that include a variety of techniques including guitars mixes, massive reverbs/delays, keyboards/synthesizers, live drums, and other techniques! We can’t wait to see him live at The Chapel on 9/13 with Blockhead and Elaquent!

Sexy, sweaty, six hour Scruff set!

Mr. Scruff @ Public Works 8/16

 

Mr. Scruff comes to town! 

Mr Scruff swims through currents like a ninja tuna. Known for extended sets of the rarest vinyl, Scruff will play a SIX HOUR set at Public Works on August 16, kicking off to an empty house at 9pm and playing until the sweat drenched masses fall down at 3am. Along the way you may hear every type of music under the sun, all from wax, and all expertly mixed by one of the most uncompromising perfectionists ever to stand behind the decks. Scruff will reconfigure entire DJ booths, rebuild turntables, and EQ a club sound system, all during sound check. Then for 6 hours he will reprogram our minds. Oh yeah, and he will design his own posters in that “Potato Style” stick cartoon fashion that has brought comedy to dance music since he began his journey. Supporting him are some of SF’s finest Scruffheads, including J.BOOGIE, PLATURN, DJ DIALS and ROBBIE “MOPO” KOWAL.

Sunset Shines On Diego’s Umbrella

 

rsz_1526960_650637388330840_478426795_n

Our intern talks to Diego’s Umbrella about their tour, protein shakes and near death experiences!

How has the tour been so far?
Every day is a new experiment, wherein each member of the band is both Scientist and his own Subject. The scientist adds or subtracts a given amount of sleep/pills/food/booze/sex/laughter/rage/apathy/etc and logs the results.

Are there any crazy stories you want to tell us from the tour ( insert German ponies and magical llamas stories here)?
One word: Protein Shakes.

What was it like putting “Proper Cowboy” together? 
It was like a near-death experience without the white light.

Has the tour inspired any new material while you’ve been on the road? 
It has inspired me to create a new series of self-help flip books. We also have some new music.

Anything you’d like to add?
We would just like to say thank you to the wonderful people of San Francisco for all of their support over the years!

 

We’ll always support good music! Big ups to these guys for making time for us during their tour!

This Single is Worthy..

worthy

Worthy just dropped his latest single and it’s freaking sweet! This isn’t at all a departure from the Dirty Bird Records regular who has been very consistent in producing quality tunes. What we like about the track is how Worthy creates a low key but well crafted ambient house track. If we are fortunate enough to hear him play it Friday at Mighty it’ll just spill out onto the dance floor real well. It’s deep and frankly sexy. Wherever he sampled that vocal track from too is great, very much a throwback to something you might hear in Detroit or Chicago in the early days of house. If you’re in the bay area be sure to come by Mighty tonight where Worthy will be opening up for mainstay Krafty Kuts, sure to be a great show!
