Stephen Rey & the Slicks' new album is called "Old Fashioned Future."
This week flew by pretty quickly for me, and we have another fun weekend to look forward to.
I’ll be kicking off my Thursday night at the SoundDiego LIVE event at McFadden’s downtown. How could I pass up the double bill of Stephen Rey & the Slicks and Kera & the Lesbians? The Garage to Glory contest winner the Hero Inside will open up the night. Go here to get on the guest list. Then I’m thinking of heading to El Dorado for Saul Q’s Getting Too Old Birthday Bash featuring a Night of Motown, ‘60s, garage, surf, freak beat and psychedelic music. Stack-Aly, Kid Wonder and the Miguel will be spinning the tunes, and there’s no cover.
The Oceanside Museum of Art hosts after-hours events, and Art After Dark is back Friday, channeling a Night Odyssey theme. Inspired by The Point of View: William Glen Crooks exhibition, this winter edition will thread together technology, light and art through an LED art-board installation and a live-art showcase beneath a black-light display. Live musical entertainment by Starcrossed and DJ Carlo will treat guests to a cocktail of sounds of '80s electro-pop. Get more details here. Also on Friday, the gorgeous Pakistani-American singer Nadia Ali will make her way to Stingaree downtown. Don’t miss your chance to see this internationally known star -- best known for the hit song “Fantasy” with Morgan Page -- in such an intimate setting. Check out info via this link.
On Saturday The Whistle Stop is putting on a cancer benefit event starting at 5 p.m. with DJs Claire and Dubchops, along with a bake sale and raffle. Plus, happy hour specials and the MIHO Gastrotruck will be serving food out front. Then the Whistle will shift into party mode with Dimitri and Rob Moran for Booty Basement. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the I’m Too Young for This! Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that empowers young adults affected by cancer. Get more details here. Over at the Flame in Hillcrest, join me for Club Sabbat, San Diego’s classiest gothic, industrial and fetish event. We’ll be celebrating the birthday of Sabbat founder Linda Estep, who has been doing the night in San Diego for almost 14 years. Resident DJs Liquid Grey and Diskdroid spin in the front while I keep it going in the back room. Get more details here.
Other Thursday through Saturday events are listed on my blog. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on the dance floor!
