 Paradise Garage 30 Yr Anniv.
Has it really been 30 years? (And, wow, how old does that make me?) Paradise Garage was the original night club focused solely on dancing and the DJ's talent (unlike other clubs around NYC, where the crowd was the focus). The King Street Garage, where the party was held, was not open to the public, no alcohol was served, and there was no opening and closing time - it was just the place to be if you were among those in the know. Out of this party came the garage sound - a disco-inspired, deep, soulful mix of vocals and beats - and some of the biggest DJs with roots in today's house. Tonight is our homage to where it all started, so throw on your disco attire and party with New York DJ Danny Krivit, along side our own DJDreamteamer David Harness, and Franky Boissy. Date: Saturday 10/20, Time: 10pm-?, Place: Pink, Cover: $25, linkMore Info. (KW)


Stiletto - Warhol Superstar Party
It’s high time you acquainted yourself with Stiletto, a third Friday dance party held at AsiaSF that gets theme-happy every single time. Each month, a synthesis of DJ dance music, photography, film, fashion, performances, and other forms of interactive art offers a fresh and innovative theme for night owls looking for something different. Tonight, Stiletto transforms into the Warhol Superstar Party, a manic, off-the-hook blow-out where everyone’s ready for their fifteen minutes. Ready for a night of art antics, dance mayhem, music from DJs Polocorp and Mykill, and overall Warhol-themed fun? Head here - and fast! Oh, and don’t forget your Warhol Superstar costume, because not only is there a contest, but a “candid” photographer will be lurking, so you best look your best! Date: Friday 10/19, Time: 10pm-3am, Place: AsiaSF, Cover: tbd, linkMore Info. (EK)

The Endup

Children's Art Ctr Benefit Auction Remember how much fun it was to paint and draw pictures in elementary school? The crazy shapes, the story behind the drawing, and that crazy way you'd color everything?

Now you can help make sure art is available to other children by attending the San Francisco Children's Art Center's 4th Annual Benefit Art Auction, which includes 29 Bay Area artists showcasing a variety of art media, including canvas and paper work from Gail Tarantino, photography, canvas and graphic art from Natasha Shannon and paintings and sculptures from Amy Cancelmo. DJ Ben Flowz completes the ambiance with his lounge and downtempo tunes. Come bid for a good cause! Date: Tues, 10/16, Time: 6:30-9:30pm, Place: 111 Minna Gallery, Cover: $25, linkMore Info. (CQ)
