Nitevibe Buzz

Almost feel as though Decompression is a no brianer at this point. Much like The Burn itself: if you can, you should. Taking place in one of the most glorious areas of the city (both for aesthetic and that 'we're almost in Oakland, but don't worry we're not' weather) Decompression is the yearly post-Burn event that consistently brings out alllllll of the local crews be they involved in art, sound, or simply reveling and consciousness for a great day of outdoor delight. The event is full of expression, complete with Playa style and pageantry and interactivity. The performers, much like Burning Man, are numerous, varied, danceable, and never focused on big name acts over quality. With your favorite theme camps like Airpusher, Dancestronauts, and even official Burn stuff (including reps from Lost & Found), this will be thep perfect way for you to prepare for your upcoming year in the Default World while realizing the joy that can be found both on and off the Playa. Just like BRC, leave the neighborhood cleaner than you found it! Date: October 11, Time: noon-11pm, Place: 19th St. & Minnesota, Cover: $15 b4 3pm, $20 after, link More Info

Event: My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult
Venue: DNA Lounge
DJs: My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Striplicker, Night Club
Music: electro-industrial, EBM
Cover: $15-20


DNA Lounge is around for a lot more than just Booty SF and super late night pizza that also serves vegans. It also remains one of the final bastions of electro-industrial culture and music in a city that is slowly but ever-so-surely switching over to predominantly house or pop venues. DNA keeps the industrial apocalypse sounds alive for those in black. The harder styling sounds of My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult (or Thrill Kill Kult for short) feature often tongue-in-cheek allusions to satanic sex and the general aesthetic of B-horror movies. The band, in fact, was created to be the fictional featured band in one such film in the mid 80s, and it is the title of that film that never was that left the band with their long-winded yet evocative title. They were around for some of the most seminal moments of the industrial sound, and even toured with Ministry in their heydey. That said, TKK hasn't gone anywhere, and has only evolved their sound into a cheeky self-satire that has grown to encompass disco and psych while keeping things dark. Some things only improve with age. (ML)

Venue: Mighty
DJs: Worthy, Galen, Anthony Mansfield, Shiny Objects, Shane-One, Charisma, Phleck
Music: house, tech-house
Cover: no cover b4 11p w/ rsvp, $10 presale after 
For this installment of Disbehave, Disco Knights who have been a beacon of uplifting energy and entertainment on the Playa for the last 5 years will be taking over the decks. As one of Burning Man's dance music pillars, Disco Knights has provided exceptional sound and entertainment, featuring stacked lineups nightly with DJ legends from around the world.

Event: Hercules & Love Affair (live)
Venue: Public Works
DJs: Hercules & Love Affair(live), Wankelmut, Mike Gushansky, Ben Jorgens
Music: indietronica, synthpop, deep house
Cover: $22-25
The new musical landscape is an especially fertile place for new styles of dance bands that go beyond the usual electroclash sound. Main man of Hercules & Love Affair, Andy Butler, capitalizes on the rife territory of festivals and clubs that want to dance without just looking for a DJ and fills in the blanks with his live performances of synthy disco original tunes that would feel just as at home in the 70s, at a concert, or mixed into an electronica set. The group, perhaps due to Butler's particular affinities and history in gay rave in both his hometown of Denver and his adopted terra of NYC, has a fabulous kind of vibe. With the addition of Constantin Zeileissen, the Viennese techno producer of Haze Factory, the sound takes on a darker turn while still remaining true to the group's gospel-style techno and vocal diva stylings. The recent addition of Wankelmut, Germany's house producer who is so popular it's practically not underground, especially after his super-hit One Day, truly rounds out the lineup along with AYLI faves Mike Gushansky and Ben Jorgens.

Venue: Monarch
DJs: Juan MacLean, Nancy Whang, M3
Music: house

The next stop on the journey was 2010's Juan MacLean DJ KiCKS mix CD. True to the series' standard, it was selected by DJ Magazine as the #1 essential mix of 2010.

Luckily there will be time for it all at this bash as well as smaller stages featuring Mike Bee of Vinyl Dreams glory and the entire crew from Club Lonely (such as Vin Soul, DJ Primo, Jeremy C and more).

Event: Modular pres. Monkey Safari
Venue: Harlot
DJs: Monkey Safari, Human Resources, Pedro Arbulu, Jaime James
Music: deep house
Cover: no cover b4 11pm w/ RSVP, otherwise $20
Germans run deep house. Y'know the kind that existed before it took over entire stages at Ultra Music Festival and still holds the allure of bro-free dance floor at German open airs. Some of these acts, like Monkey Safari from Halle (hail from Halle seemed like too much), choose to come to our shores to bring the sweet, emotional, and danceable sounds to our ears and dancefloors. With credentials like their upcoming own lable, Hommage, and their work alongside Kölsch, Marc Houle, and Wolf + Lamb, you'll get the idea of what to expect when local crew Modular brings the talent and the fun. As always. (ML)
