Burning Man 2014
I don't think anyone would stop me if I were to say that THE event of the season has finally arrived! If you can still see through the stress of preparations, you are all mighty excited to head back to the Playa, Black Rock City, the desert, Burning Man, Le Burn, Burning Mang, etc… It sometimes feels like we're preparing for this all year, and in a way we truly are. Some of our favorite parties from September-August will be represented here in full force - in the way they were meant to be enjoyed. SF's own Opulent Temple, Distrikt, Pink Mammoth, Disco Knights, and Bootie BRC . Other great soundcamps include White Ocean (with a different electronic music theme for each night), Camp ?, and the much-beloved and elusive Robot Heart. You'll hear trance, techno, house, beats, bass, psytrance up to 160 bpm, rock music, meditative music, goth/industrial, and on and on and on. You can pick up a cock-sicle (cock shaped popsicle), you can go to the Human Carcass Wash, you can eat miso soup, you can go to BDSM workshops, take yoga classes, and you can try to remember to take a couple of minutes to sleep. Don't forget to drink water. Its the time of your life and its coming up. Deep breaths until we get there, the time is nigh. Happy travels everyone and looking forward to saying 'Welcome home'! Date: Gates open Sunday Aug 24, Time: 8am, Place, Black Rock City, Nevada, link More Info

Noise Pop Block Party
For the second year in a row, Noise Pop will host a summertime block party blowout just east of the Mission. The free event this Saturday will host a variety of artists, musicians, performers, and some great cuisine a la the selection of the Ne Timeas Restaurant Group (flour + water, Salumeria). The music stages are filled with great local acts like Rogue Wave, Oakland's Bilinda Butchers, and Mattson 2, a psychedelic skate-rock band whose lineup includes both Ray Barbee and Tommy Guerrero. The block party also features a workshop tent where local chefs will be giving seminars on how to cook some of their favorite creations (there's also a butcher's auction going down at 3:30). Finally, Noise Pop is moving to Public Works at night, bringing out Canadian house producer Jacques Greene to keep the after-party rolling. Date: Saturday, August 23rd, Time: Noon - 6PM, Place: 20th St. Corridor, Cover: Complimentary entry, link More Info (DF)

Event: Adore Delano
Venue: DNA Lounge
DJs: Adore Delano
Music: downbeat jams, hyperactive hip hop
Cover: $22.50-40
If you are ready to party with sass, grace, and style, you are ready for Adore Delano. Adore, the drag persona of "American Idol" contestant Danny Noriega, took America by storm this year with her unique fierceness on "RuPaul's Drag Race." But if you think a pretty wig and amazing makeup is all Adore has to offer, you're dead wrong. Her new album, "Til Death Do Us Party," is an electro-pop romp through the party hard mind of Adore. The album is part Cyndi Lauper emotion, part Bruno Mars-esque crooning, part NSFW dance tracks, and it's all set to a wide range of catchy EDM styles. From downbeat jams to hyperactive hip hop to pop tunes that even Katy Perry would be jealous of, Adore makes sure there is something for everyone. Adore knows what cool is -- and she isn't afraid of arbitrary beauty standards. Her brand of punk attitude meets street couture princess is refreshing, no matter what part of pop culture you are entrenched in. Be ready to dance your wig off!

For four years, the crew at As You Like It have served as purveyors of the finest techno and house lineups in San Francisco. Month after month, it seems like the already eminent promoters at AYLI outdo themselves, creating a dance club culture and environment rarely seen outside of the European continent. To celebrate four years at the top, AYLI has brought out Norwegian disco poster boy Todd Terje, who after years of work on the scene, finally released his debut album It's Album TIme this past April on Olsen Records. Widely considered Scandinavia's top DJ/producer, Terje's sound is disco for minimalists, laced with the funky sounds of yesteryear's French house. Terje is joined by boogie kingpin Maurice Fulton, New Jersey industrialist DJ Qu, as well as all your favorite Honey Soundsystem and AYLI resident DJs. Presales have sold out for this show, so make sure to show up early! (DF)

Event: Beats by the Pound
Venue: Monarch
DJs: J. Phlip, Galen, Benjamin Vallery
Music: tech-house, beats
Cover: $10-20
Rising up in the Dirtybird ranks, resident Girl of the Moment (#ladiezwhorock) J. Phlip really upped her game when she was asked last minute to close out the Beatport Stage and pre-eminent technofest Movement in Detroit. As what is now legend would have it, J. Phlip killed her set, entrancing all around in Detroit and those at home listening again and again to the set on soundcloud. Now the DJ, a native of SF, isn't here all that often, more frequently travelling to Canada, Europe, the East Coast and beyond. But tonight, you'll see her in top form, headlining in the basement at Monarch for the Beats by the Pound series. She'll be preceded by local favorites like Sunset's Galen and Benjamin Vallery with the deep tracks. (ML)

Event: Behrouz
Venue: Audio

With Burning Man rapidly approaching, Behrouz is taking over Audio for a pre-burn event. Famous for his Pure Behrouz parties, where he'd play solo all night, gave him the opportunity to explore all kinds of house and techno beats. He brings that same vibe to Audio, offering a bit of what you can expect on the playa for those of us who aren't returning home this year. ELZ opens the night with her funky beats and bass-laden sound, so get to Audio this Saturday to help send Behrouz off properly. (CQ)

This Armenian-born LA transplant has been studying music for as long as he can remember, and his move to LA brought him esteem as well as signings to the top labels of Crosstown Rebels and Arjuna Deep. His music stands in line with the Canadian record label that hosts the likes of Art Department and Deniz Kurtel. Enjoy some stabbing melodies on your Friday night. (ML)

Propr stays true to their agenda of presenting extraordinary turntablism talent under F8's roof with this fourth installment of the series. This time we're treated to the able hands of none other than DJ Craze. While he's shown himself to be quite able in the studio both crafting dancefloor heaters and hugely popular battle records, it's on the decks where Craze truly shines. Three time DMC World Champion - a number that can't be matched by anyone else - Craze has gone on to DJ for Yelawolf and the Yeezus himself: Mr. Kanye West. He's really that good. The bill is rounded out by Whooligan, Starship Connection, Vinroc, DJ Napsty, and Kashmir, so quit that mantra that hip-hop is dead and get while the getting's good! (AO)

1015 will be packed this Friday when Four Tet and Jamie xx take to the decks for some back-to-back action. The two of them are nearly household names at this point, and this year has seen Four Tet working with Martyn and Terror Danjah as well as putting out two EPs under his more club-ready Percussions alias - which I really quite enjoy. This year has also seen good things for Jamie xx, of ever-so-popular The xx in case you weren't aware, with his tracks "Sleep Sound" and "All Under One Roof Raving" floating around the air almost everywhere I go. Support from Eug, Shawn Reynaldo, and more TBA. (AO)

He was behind what many call the first house record to ever be, "On and On" - Chicago, 1984 - and has moved into doing plenty of work completely outside the realm of house music as a film composer as well. Jesse's sets are fun, full of that light-hearted, fun vibe that so many Chicago DJ's curate so well. Catch him with local support from Robin Simmons and Buckner. (AO)
