Farewell, Sweet Lips! Plus: Singular Sensation, Dam Funk, Marques Wyatt, Janaka Selekta, and more nightlife
Bay homeboy Janaka wickedly melds classical Indian sounds to deep dub and dread bass, and new album Pushing Air is full of sweeping melodies and haunting breakdowns. He'll be supporting the rumbly nodding of our own Mighty Dub Killaz at one of SF's raddest weekly parties, Dub Mission.
Sun/4, 9 p.m., $8–$11. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. www.elbo.com
An annual July Fourth weekend tradition, Stompy and Sunset's 12-hour extravaganza on the patio of Cafe Cocomo brings together some of the best names in funky house and techno in town. This year, they're adding legendary deep house pioneer Kerri "Kaoz" Chandler as headliner. Could it get any better? Hell yeah, there's a BBQ before 9 p.m., too
