FALL ARTS PREVIEW: Nightlife wobbles, glows, and explodes in the fall
Deviants Anything goes at Folsom Street Fair, of course, but what if you just want to dance around for a bit after you've been righteously whipped? get your extra kicks (and slaps) at Deviants, the 11-hour post-fair block party for those with a little wiggle left in their post-fair chaps. Party rulers Honey Soundsystem, Hard French, and Some Thing give it all to you, plus special live performances and guests. Sunday, September 25, 4 p..m.-3 a.m., $15–$30. Outside and inside Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com
Amon Tobin: ISAM Live The glitch-samba pioneer has taken an awesome left turn into mega-technological WTF with this enormous live spectacle that includes one of the biggest moving electronic music stages to go on tour. Basically, the visuals will take you over while the music lures you in. October 1 and 2, 8 p.m., $30–$40. Warfield Theatre, 982 Market, SF. www.blasthaus.com
Rebel Rave The Crosstown Rebels label is known for its smartly intricate and smoothly funky house productions, but its roster of talent can certainly whip a crowd into a rave-like frenzy, too. The Rebel Rave parties give you the hot dogging and the bun — this installment features Damian Lazarus, former Red Circle radio duo Art Department, Droog, and local stunner Dead Seal. Good stuff all round. Friday, October 1, 10 p..m.-4 a.m., check website for price.
