I take San Diego for granted way too often. We live in such a beautiful city, and sometimes I’m running around like crazy so much that I miss out on how much this town has to offer. You know what I mean … those scenic destinations and secret spots that only the locals know about. I’ve been told on more than one occasion to stop and smell the roses, but when it comes to nightlife, I definitely don’t let that pass me by.
Anyone who ever says there’s nothing to do here is sorely mistaken, yet I hear that quite often. Maybe those people just don’t know where to go. Well, seek and you shall find. No matter what style of music you are into, there is something you’ll enjoy when it comes to going out to clubs and getting your dance on.
My two picks for starting the party early on Thursday are Bag Raiders at Voyeur and Dutch techno/trance DJ/producer Sander Van Doorn at Fluxx. This is Bag Raiders’ first international tour. The Sydney, Australia, house duo is well known for its remixes and live shows. Take a listen here, and don’t miss this great opportunity to see them so up close and personal. The beautiful L.A.-based Brazzabelle will be doing opening honors, so make sure you get to Voyeur early. Down the street, Fluxx EDM is back, and you are in for a good time with Van Doorn. Word on the street is that his set at Ultra in Miami was amazing. This will be his third time DJing at Fluxx, so if you haven’t seen him before, now is your chance at this amazing venue. Plus, Cowboy Mike, Jason Ross and DJ Flo will be warming up the crowd.
This weekend I’ll be putting my host and DJ hat on for two fun events: Friday after work will consist of running around and getting ready for Pussy Galore’s monthly night at the Whistle Stop in South Park. It’s an awesome neighborhood hang. Not only is the crowd super chill, but the staff there is always friendly and makes you feel welcome. I’ll be spinning electro, indie, ‘80s and more with Terryn S throughout the night. Plus, you’ll enjoy live performances from the Hot Moon, Martian Horses and Vanja James. It’s free and always a fun night. If you need more info, go here. I always like to try and get to the Whistle early for the MIHO happy hour.
Saturday, Club Sabbat celebrates 13 years of being one of the hottest clubs in the San Diego scene with its gothic, industrial and fetish flair. Sabbat was born in April 1998 at Shooters in North Park; its current home is at the Flame in Hillcrest. Come and join us for the celebration -- I’ll be DJing with Atom in the main room while Liquid Grey keeps the old school vibe going in the back room. The event will also feature a live performance from Grindesque Burlesque and Beijo Collection by Kari merchandising. For more info, check out this link.
Other Thursday through Saturday events are listed on my blog. See you on the dance floor, and remember to always stop and smell the roses!
