nothing can stop us

Dear Friends,

Thank you for making last Thursday SOOOOO amazing...Everything was perfect and everyone was so happy. You really made my night...OUR night, I should say. See proof here:

Our friend Fred really felt it in those photographs - stay tuned for the black and whites by Mark Brecke!

That said, I wanted to tell you that I will be taking a little break. I have some things I need to attend to. I won't be long, and I definitely won't forget about you. Please come see Tony and I this Sunday at Laszlo on Mission! It will be cinematic and lovely, just like all of you.

Thank you for all your support and love!

Last January, Josh approached me with the idea of doing a weekly Thursday night at the Beauty Bar. Prior to that, I dj'd Friday happy hour there during the party Errrly! which was really successful. I hadn't dj'd a weekly for a long time in SF - since probably the days of Fanclub at the LiPo Lounge in Chinatown with Jason, Trinity, and Tee. I was a little apprehensive, but after consulting a few close friends, I decided to go for it.

For those who don't know, Jessica came up with the name, Noel came up with the logo and initial flyer - Micke with the subsequent flyers. I brought in Raul, and later Ari, to be the regular djs along with me. We did our first gig on Feb.19, 2009. Omar guest dj'd and it was a great success due in large part to the support of our friends and the great staff at the Beauty Bar - Josh, Lee, David, Candice, Matt, Bama, and Aaron.

Over the past year our success was also aided by the MANY guest djs' who have been so kind to share their music with us both here and at Errrly!. Eug, The Selecter Dj Kirk, Anthony Gordon, Dusty DiMercurio, Liz Baca, Rob Matus, Doug Martsch, Paul Allen, Green Figueroa, Amedee Ito, Greg Morantz, Noel Tolentino, Alex Restrepo, Stacy Rodgers, Kylee Swenson, Bootsy Harput, Micke Tong, Matt Stout, Dan Phifer, Helen Jordan, Blue Figueroa, Nathalie Roland, Jessica Gruner, Bryan Ranere, Johnny Landmine, and Michael Caputo. Et cetera, etc. (My apologies if I misspelled your name, I'm frantically trying to get this out.)

Dear friends,

I am still excited about the new year but I am even more excited to dj this
Thursday in celebration of all our beloved Aquarian friends!  Aquarius is my
most compatible sign, so it's no wonder I have so many around me - Blue,
Green, Sheila, Ken, Noe, Fidel, and so many more.  I love you all!

Dear friends,

Once again, you've shown that rain won't get you down.  Thanks for coming out to support Rob aka Vinyl Richie at his L/S debut last week.  You danced and danced some more and that always makes us happy.  His sets were filled with forgotten classics, underplayed genres, and little bit of humor.  Great job!

As most of you know, we've been working hard on LIFE/STYLE's 1 Year Anniversary Party.  I'm really proud of what we've accomplished over the past year.  With very little publicity except for this email and facebook, and us placing a flyer in your hand, our success has really been one fueled by a love of music and you guys showing up and spreading the word.  It's very humbling for me to think about.  We've had lots of guest djs - most of them first timers - guests that just love music and have lovingly shared their selections with us.  That's one of the things that makes our party truly unique.

Here's a quick preview of next week's blowout on Feb. 18: Eug, Kirk, Greg, and Amedee guest dj...  Jessica is making caramel corn...  Josh and Bama have come up with a couple of free drink specials.  Something vodka based and possibly champagne...  Candice will probably be in the house giving manicures...  Decorations + balloon drop at midnight...  The Life/Style Crew dressed to the 9's and kicking out the jams!  It's gonna be special, and I hope you can make it out.  Look sharp!  Try and come early for the free drink specials and the sweet treats.  We start at 9pm.  If you haven't RSVP'd yet, please do so HERE.  This will help us with any last minute planning.

Next week, I''ve got a little write up about L/S' history and thank you list for everyone that has made L/S possible.  Thank you once again.  Now...

Let's practice by celebrating our Aquarian friends' birthdays on Thursday with Ari dj-ing.  It's always amazing to hear her selections, and it will be doubly amazing to celebrate our awesome friends' birthdays. 

See you soon.


ps. Susan, I'm excited to see you!  Welcome back to SF!

Amaze-balls! The Specials w Terry Hall are finally coming to the US!

Via No-no via Shockhound.

I'm not really one for festivals like Coachella (although I attended the first one), but I was tempted to go this year because The Specials w Terry Hall (one of my all time faves) will be playing.  But then Noel brought this Terminal 5 to my attention and now I'm gonna try and make that.

See you in NYC at Terminal 5 on April 21st?

Dear friends,

Wow!  You guys came out in droves last week.  A few highlights you may have missed...  Anthony from Loquat played some of his best sets yet, Raul singing Lou Reed's Satellite of Love to close Life/Style, Amedee rocking some serious new wave jams, Clay making his dj debut (amazing job... he's better than a lot of djs who been playing for years... really), and a crowded Laszlo gasping at the razor wire pit scene in Suspiria.

This week, Rob aka Vinyl Richie makes his debut at Life/Style.  The man is a skilled and prolific dj who you have probably caught rocking dance floors all over the Bay Area.  Currently, he's been doing some one-offs and holding it down with the Eddy Bauer at Upgrade, Sweaterfunk crew at LiPo Lounge on Sunday and Triple Crown on Wednesday happy hour.  Expect him to stretch out and give his interpretation of the L/S sound.  Come on out and show him some love.  And while you're at it, check out his blog, Hear The Sounds - you'll probably learn something rad.

On Wednesday at the Makeout Room, Raul's latest installment of Penny Arcade happens.  This month's awesome line up includes


And lastly, save Feb. 18th on your calendars and plan on coming out in full force.  It's our 1 year anniversary party.  We'll be starting early at 9pm so drop by early for sweet treats by Sugartits and complimentary vodka cherry cokes.  Eug (Face), Kirk (Concrete Jungle, In-N-Out, Sweaterfunk) Rantz (Fallout) and Amedee dj with the L/S regulars.  There is also an awesome giveaway which I'll talk more about next time.

Have a great week, remember to support SF night life, and see you soon.
