There's so much going on in San Diego this weekend, but we're getting the party started early Thursday night -- and if it sounds like whipped cream, lace and silk sheets, even better.
With over 10 years of DJing in his belt, Ashley Jones, a k a Treasure Fingers, has rocked events from continent to continent. As a producer and a musician, Treasure Fingers has his hand in multiple genres. He is also part of the drum and bass act Evol Intent. Based out of Atlanta, he produces music in between touring. Mr. Fingers dabbles in electro, idm, downtempo, hip-hop and more. He's got remixes galore as part of his repertoire, as well as his own signature releases that others have remixed, such as "Cross the Dancefloor". That song caught the ear of A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, landing him a spot on the Fool's Gold Records roster. Your chance to check out his moves and grooves is this Thursday night at Voyeur, which is one of Treasure Finger's favorite clubs. Brady Spear will be doing an opening DJ set to kick things off.
Friday night, join me for Pussy Galore at the Whistle Stop in South Park. I've been hosting this monthly night at different venues all across San Diego for more than four years. It features an all-female DJ lineup and, sometimes, even bands that feature women in them. Terryn S and yours truly will be spinning indie, electro, '80s and more throughout the evening. Plus, you can enjoy live music from Hotel St. George as they celebrate the release of their brand new CD, Indian School. Scruffles will be opening the night. It's free and always a great neighborhood hang.
Saturday, it's Club Sabbat at the Flame in Hillcrest, San Diego's classiest gothic, industrial and fetish event. Linda Estep has been hosting this night for almost 13 years. You'll hear everything from darkwave to synth/future pop to EBM. I'll be DJing in the main room, along with Scott Savak (Bar Sinister, Distortion) from Los Angeles. Ladynoir will be keeping it old school in the back room. Go here for more info.
El Camino in Little Italy is celebrating its one-year anniversary. Friday features house music legend Julius Papp, and on Saturday, DJ Ikah Love will be heating up the floor.
Sunday, it's the big all-ages 91X holiday show Wrex the Halls -- can't wait to check out Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Eat World, My Chemical Romance, Bad Religion, Switchfoot, Anberlin and A Day to Remember at the Viejas Arena. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and the bands will start right away, so make sure you get there early. 91X will be broadcasting live and bringing you interviews with the bands, so tune in to be part of the festivities. The event after-party is happening at Side Bar -- you never know who might show up. I'll try and snap some backstage-photo shenanigans for you.
For more info about events happening Thursday through Sunday, go here. See you on the dance floor!
