Sunset Campout 2017
Campout season is in full effect and that makes me one happy girl. What's better than frolicking in the sun or in the river while your favorite DJ gets downright dirty on the 1s and 2s? If you ask me, NOTHING. Sunset Soundsystem hosts their annual campout, taking over Belden Town with their bright outfits, banging beats and tasty treats. Not to mention the massive amount of art and clothing creations that your fellow artists and designers have created just for this. Check out our special Sunset - Hall of Fame Photo Gallery . Featuring everything from clothing, to art for your walls and everything in between, the Sunset Campout has something for everyone. And since this is three days of awesomeness, we will only highlight a few DJs from the lineup, as this one is intense, but I mean that in the best way possible. Remember, there are various stages, even one down by the river, so plan accordingly! There've been a few additions since the lineup was announced, including Rothmans going b2b with Stacy Christine. Junior, Daddy Differently and Evilweavil are making the trek up north to rock Sunset, while Paranoid London, Talaboman and Young Marco show you how it's down with their banging bass-heavy beats. Of course your Sunset Soundsystem residents will also be throwing down, but like I said, this is just a taste of those playing, for a full list, you have to get to Belden. Date: Fri-Sun July 21-23, Time: 7.21 noon to 7.23 7pm, Place: Belden Town Resort & Lodge 14785 Belden Town Rd, Belden, Cover: $195+, More Info (CQ)



Nicolas Jaar
Nicolas Jaar might be one of the most critically acclaimed electronic music composers of the current era — an artist on tier with Philip Glass, Igor Stravinsky, and John Cage. Following his breakout hit album Space Is Only Noise in 2011 when he was only 21 (and oh, so cute), his wildly skillful compositions and accompanying collage-like live sets at festivals worldwide and on his widely revered BBC1 Essential Mix made him an electronic star of this decade. He continued his work alongside Dave Harrington with their duo Darkstar and finally returned to his own solo work with an album in 2016, Sirens. Jaar continues to work within the realms of noise, transcendentalism, bricolage of sounds from his history, including many nods to the local music and sounds of his native Chile. His work is always poetic, whether it is on his produced and recorded work or his live sets that he brings to festivals and now here to The Warfield. It is avant-garde, it is poetry, it is electronic, it is a complete embodiment of what it is to be music today. Date: Wednesday, July 19, Time: 9:30pm, Place: The Warfield, Cover: $34.50-45, More Info (ML)

Event: Dom Dolla
Venue: Halcyon
DJs: Dom Dolla
Music: tech-house
Cover: $5-20
Dom Dolla is a commodity appreciating in value. His name has become synonymous with soulful hooks, jackin' drums and big basslines and at the tender age of twenty four, he continues to establish himself as a future world beater. His remix of Go Freek's seminal record 'We Can Ride' banked over three and a half million streams and caught the ear of heavyweights Diplo, Tchami, Anna Lunoe, AC Slater, Oliver Helens, Bixel Boys, Mark Farina & many others. Last year, Dom was invited to mix Ministry of Sound's Platinum selling 'Annual' Compilation, an invitation he took to task, putting together an eclectic mix that pushed the rigid boundaries of modern dance compilations.

Event: Don't Try This At Home w/ Monkey Safari

German brothers Monkey Safari are the prototypical German house festival boys whose summer deep house send has set a standard for festivals like Fusion in Germany, Lightning in a Bottle, Robot Heart's Further Future, and Desert Hearts here in California, as well as Booom Ibiza (to name a few). Luckily they're taking time this summer to play at some clubs including tonight at The Great Northern alongside their Desert Hearts friends Porkchop and Benjamin K. It'll be a lot of sunny festival vibes inside the Potrero club for those who weren't able to make it out of town this weekend. (ML)

Venue: 1015 Folsom
DJs: Motor City Drum Ensemble, Dam-Funk, Sassmouth, Mike Gushansky, Carlos Souffront, Taravel, DJ CZ, Sweater Funk crew
Music: house, tech-house, funk
Cover: $20
Arguably the wildest lineup for the Sunset weekend anti-migration is this rare sighting of Motor City Drum Ensemble in our humble city. MCDE's name hails not from Detroit (although his music sounds like it does), but rather from Stuttgart in Germany, also a producer of many automobiles. Prominent on the supreme house scene since 2008, his sound comes heavily from his influences in jazz, funk, and soul, often from the 60s and 70s. His sound is often vintage, rare, and perfectly imperfect.He'll be joined by a wildly impressive crew from the likes of As You Like It, Detroit's Interdimensional Transmissions, Sweater Funk, and Surface Tension for a wildly varied San Francisco meets Detroit meets Germany sound that will bring you the soul without having to leave the city.

SET welcomes John Digweed to the decks in the main room at Public Works. If there's one word I can use to reflect Digweed, it's longevity. He's been in the DJ game since 1989, taking over the musical world with his collaborations with Sasha and their release of the first commercial compilation from the Renaissance Nightclub in Mansfield. Then it was his label, Bedrock Records, that exposed the world to new and different sounds. Also holding it down in the main room are Travis Groneman, who'll be going b2b with Matthew J, and Beau Kelly, each getting down with some funky sounds. Amber Cox, Jean Philippe, Yaz and Jordan Epperson keep things popping in the loft, so don't forget your dancing shoes. (CQ)
