This weekend is filled with all kinds of awesome. Friday night, I'll be hosting Pussy Galore. Don’t let the name fool you. Yes, it's a James Bond reference, but, more important, it’s a night dedicated to female DJs and, preferably, bands that have women in them.
Sorry, guys, you can dress in drag and spin, too. Its been done before.
But it has always been about giving the female of the species an opportunity to play. Don’t get me wrong: I do have bands with no women in them do their thing. I just prefer to spotlight the girl power in San Diego and beyond. I've been doing this night for over four years at venues all over San Diego, including the Beauty Bar, SDSC (now the Ruby Room), the Brass Rail, AC Lounge and its current monthly home for the past three years, the Whistle Stop in South Park.
This Friday, you get truth and lies all in the same night and it won't cost you a thing. Wendy Bailey & True Stores and Lindsay & the White Lies will be performing. Plus, I'll be spinning indie, electro, '80s and more throughout the night.
For something completely different, Saturday night, yours truly will be the mistress of ceremonies for Club Sabbat at the Flame, in Hillcrest. This is San Diego's classiest gothic, industrial and fetish night. The venue has been completely remodeled and looks amazing. DJs Liquid Grey and special guest Tony 909 (the Chamber) will be spinning everything from synth pop to EBM in the front room and Atom will keep the old-school '80s vibe going in the back room. It's your chance to win Nitzer Ebb tickets for the upcoming show (Nov. 3 at Brick by Brick) and passes for the advance screening of Paranormal Activity 2, which opens Oct. 22.
Cap off your weekend with Don’t Turn It Off at Eldorado on Sunday. DJs Mark E Quark, Le Chien, Holbach and Pavilik will get the ball rolling early at 6 p.m. and end just before you can say, "Got to get up early for work tomorrow." Have a drink, dance and support your local scene.

See you on the dance floor!
