NO PARKING ON THE DANCEFLOOR
Before you groan at this party's title, know that fab club Mighty almost got shut down by an SFMTA proposal to ban all parking and stopping in its area. (I usually take the 22 Fillmore there, but still.) An online petition went admirably viral and Mighty's here to stay. This free "thank you" party features DJs Galen, Syd Gris, Ren the Vinyl Archeologist, and tons more SF biggies.
Fri/2, 9 p.m.-late, free. Mighty, 119 Utah, SF. www.mighty119.com
One of my favorite dance music producers of the past few years (not just because of his name), Birmingham, UK's Mark E. builds meticulous, entrancing grooves out of stripped -down 90s jam loops, redlight disco snippets, and '80s analogue overhears that teem with relaxed intelligence — and lots of sexy-sexy. Kids get down to him at this week's Honey Sundays.
Sun/4, 9 p.m., $5. Holy Cow, 1535 Folsom, SF. Facebook: Honey With Mark E
