Here, there, and everywhere with Mike Huckaby, Alland Byallo, Alexander Robotnick, Hercules and Love Affair, and more parties
I've been keeping an ear on this Detroit wizard for nigh on two decades now, and his mesmerizing techno-soul style is finally starting to gain major traction among dance aficionados. As the house DJ at beloved Motor City music store Record Time, his selections helped build many famed DJs secret arsenals. You can expect his influential deep-thinking, deep-reaching experience to shine when he takes the decks at the monthly No Way back party.

SUNSET SUMMER BOAT PARTY
Can I just give it up for the Sunset kids this year? Their seasonal gigs have blossomed into true mainstays of good ol' San Francisco love — no attitude, no trendy self-consciousness. Even the dis-aquatic among us will want to sign on to this floating blast, with classic Italian DJ Alexander Robotnick (of perma-jacking 1983 track "Problemes d'Amour") and Germany's Bruno Pronsato live. International wave!
Sun/15, 5 p.m.–11 p.m., $50. Pier 3, SF. www.pacificsound.net 2
