This SF tradition has always been a collaboration between great artists, excited and friendly promoters, and jovial dancers who love to party sans Hosen. Recently relocated from Supperclub to Harlot, it feels like the party has really found its home. The no pants party is a way to make yourself more comfortable and happier while you shake your behind, although of course your personal boundaries are always tantamount. To get you grooving, NPP is bringing out Phonique, one of the deepest doods to come out of the current roster of German house stars. I don't know about you, but to me this collection of artists like Solomun and Dixon are the true bastions of deep house. We know you're out there, so join in the fun. (ML)

Event: Felix da Housecat
Venue: Audio
DJs: Felix da Housecat, Papa Lu
Music: house, techno, electro-disco
Cover: $15
A DJ who truly needs no introduction is coming to rock the decks at Audio. Felix da Housecat is no stranger to packing dancefloors. In fact, his main goal when throwing down banging beats is to make people dance, and throughout the years, he's done just that. His blend of techno and house, coupled with that signature electro-disco swag, keeps fans wanting more. Since discovering house music in the 80's in his native Chicago, da Housecat was born and the rest is history. Steadily releasing music since the 90's, he only took a break to leave his "mezcal persona" behind and re-emerge as da best Housecat version of himself. He may have reinvented himself personally, but his music remains the same: always evolving and full of risks, just the way you like your Housecat to sound. Papa Lu will open the night, warming up the decks and dancefloors for the one they call Felix da Housecat. (CQ)
