YAY! My favorite time of year is here. October always means Indian Summer in San Francisco, Decompression, my birthday and Halloween all rolled up into one busy action-packed month. After a brief summer (Burning Man) break, it’s business as usual with getting back in the studio with Ground_Control, we have a wicked new tune that just needs some vocals and cooking up another fun bootleg on the heels of our “Rhythm is a Dancer” hit earlier this summer. I’m also meticulously working on a long overdue new mix for my Weapon of Choice series, planning another Illeven Eleven mini-tour and training for another half marathon in November. Music + Fitness 4 LIFE!
This is a massive weekend in San Francisco with Decom, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, America’s Cup, and America’s favorite waste of tax dollars: Fleet Week. On top of that, everyone is in a frenzy because the Giants and the A’s are in the MLB playoffs for the first time since 1989, which is also when we had our last major earthquake!
Gonna keep it short this week but wanted to plug a few events. This Sunday I am playing the Cocomo stage at Decompression. Although many of your favorite sound camps aren’t participating in the daytime event (ask me why if you want to know), Opulent Temple is still doing our annual after-party at Mighty. If you aren’t going down to Indiana Street, save up your energy because we’re getting started an hour earlier this year! Lastly, my 32nd lap around the sun is approaching faster than I can say “Uncle”. I hope you will come celebrate with me at Masquerotica on Saturday, October 20th at the Concourse Exhibition Center; this will be the second year of having my birthday party here. I’ll be playing alongside Stanton Warriors, Syd Gris and many other live acts and DJs. So don your finest fetish/burlesque fashions and let your inner (or outer) freak come out and play!
All info on events are below, so much love and gratitude for your support…

You won’t want to miss the 2nd Annual Masquerotica… a ‘big tent’ sex positive only-in-San Francisco affair, a Halloween costume party with a sexy twist, a chance for a certain kind of benignly fun and freaky expression with like minded party people of all stripes. A great opportunity, to shake some booty, and more …
– STANTON WARRIORS (UK)
– Syd Gris (Opel / Opulent Temple)
– DJ ICON (djicon.com)
– RON KAT’S KAT DELIC (Live Electro FunkaDelic)
– Action Jackson (Disco Funkn’ Soul Revue)

Though OT will be joining most of the staple collectives in skipping the Day portion of Decom this year, once night falls, it’s time for us to heat the streets (and the dance floor!) at our annual After Party at Mighty. Come deep into your party arch, or come fresh for one of the most vibe-tastic insta-parties we throw every year. With OT rezzies and friends alike, Sunday night action at it’s best.
With Opulent action from:
+ friends and guests
Loomer (Cruz Coalition / DISORIENT, LA)

This is a 100% benefit for our future endeavors!
