Et voila! DJ Dimitri from Paris steams up Mighty's ballroom


MAYER HAWTHORNE

Don't call him a "throwback" — the young soul-funk revivalist prefers to count J. Dilla among his influences, even while he's nicking inspiration from Holland-Dozier-Holland. The Stones Throw label favorite's DJ set should span a spectrum of mood-bending, rootsy sounds.

Sat/16, 9pm-late, $10–$15. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com

 

SON'Y RAYS

Kind of freaking out about this one. Some of the deepest, most intellectually soulful —-- and danceable! —-- tech-house future beats are being made in Oakland right now (and for the past few years) by the Deepblak crew. This showcase will bring together most of the major players at SF's SOM: Diaba$e and Nasrockswell, Blaktroniks, Aybee and Afrikan Sciences, and Damon Bell. Do not miss this night of exquisite hometown, hand-crafted live machine vibes.

Sat/16, 10pm, $10. SOM, 2925 16th St., SF. www.som-bar.com
