Summertime in San Francisco, weather-wise, means never-ending phyllo dough layers of fog carpeting the city. Music-wise, it means even more topnotch techno talent gracing us with their presence. No matter if your taste in dance music runs more brain-tingling or more foot-stomping–this edition of the Party Blotter has something for you. See you on the dancefloor!
Something special is happening in the second half of July–there’s an onslaught of world-class talent coming through our city, with what will likely end up as some of the best parties of 2013 happening in the next two weeks.
Summer is finally almost here -- officially, at least. Summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is coming up this weekend, and to celebrate we have two very big names from the UK gracing our city with their presence. Rounding out this edition of the Party Blotter is a heavy focus on parties featuring local DJs and a spotlight on Oakland, which has been having something of a techno renaissance lately. See you on the dancefloor!
As we’re all now beginning to recover from Memorial Day weekend hangovers (and post-festival humdrums, if you made it out to Movement or Mutek), make sure to steel yourself for two heavyweight weekends, brimming with talented locals, as well as some rarely-seen talent from across the pond. See you on the dancefloor!
It’s holiday weekend time. What better way to pay tribute to the men and women who have served our country than by having a fantastic time for three days straight?

In music, as in life, all things are cyclical. In the last several years, there has been nothing short of a rebirth of so-called "minimal wave," a genre born in the late 1970s and early 1980s when artists who would have otherwise picked up guitars and drum kits began experimenting with synthesizers and drum machines instead.
What has gotten into you lately, San Francisco? Are you LA or New York? With the amount of top-notch world-class bookings we've been having lately, one could easily mistake SF for a global party hotspot.
Whittling down the gigs for this edition of the Party Blotter was difficult.
This edition of the Party Blotter brings you the five best parties to attend across this weekend and next, and this time around, there's quite a diverse spread.
