SUPER EGO: Twirling around with Kenny Dope, SF Drag King Contest, Scuba, Bay Vibes Fest, Always Tired, and more parties

Dance around: Kenny Dope brings the classic Nuyorican sound to SOM


Reggae, funk, conscious hip-hop, and other blasts of musical sunshine hit Café Cocomo when more than 20 local acts — Afrolicious, Queen Makedah and the Sheba Warriors, FishBiteFish, Native Elements, and Frobeck among them — converge on two stages to turn this summer cold wave around.

Sun/22, noon–2 a.m., $25 advance, $35 door. Café Cocomo, 650 Indiana, SF.



I'm finally turning 21, which means I can go to bars now! So is my favorite bear chaser, DJ Peeplay of Honey Soundsystem. The rest of the homofuturist Honey boys are throwing us "a special birthday party for workaholics: Always Tired." They'll be spinning Detroit, Chicago, and acid classics, and there'll be juicy artwork from Primo Pitino and Johnny Ray Huston, plus fab tranny stylings by Kalisto and April Mei Joon and a mess of surprise guests. Work!

Sun/22, 10 p.m., $3. Paradise Loft, 1501 Folsom, SF.
