"I drew energy from the Moon which filled my entire body with a sensational electricity." Damian Lazarus plays the apocalypse.


GO BANG

All the best parties at Deco Lounge are fleeing in the face of new ownership — which gives me a major sad, since I love that glowing Tenderloin afterhours hotspot. The warmest, loveliest disco monthly in the city, Go Bang, has now banged out to the Stud. I'm willing to bet it stays brilliantly mixed and vibrant, with DJs Sergio and Steve Fabus at the helm, though.

Sat/3 and every first Saturday, 9pm-3am, $7. The Stud, 399 Ninth St., SF. www.facebook.com/gobangsf

 

SESSION VICTIM

Tech-soul of the extra groovy and stylish variety from German duo Matthias Reiling and Hauke Freer, which comes with driving beats and quite a few shiver-inducing cuts and live samples that reveal the depth of their "staying up all night researching house music" aesthetic.

Sat/3, 9pm-4:30am, $10–$13. Public Works, 161 Erie, SF. www.publicsf.com

 

TIMMY REGISFORD

The real deal in soulful house is the wonderfully diverse monthly Mighty Real parties at, yes, Mighty — and you know the spirits above will reflect on the dancefloor when NYC's glorious Timmy Regisford of the Shelter polishes the decks. With fab DJ David Harness (happy birthday, baby!)

Sat/3, 10pm-4am, $10–$20. Mighty, 119 Utah, SF. www.mighty119.com

 

KID KOALA

Fantastic -- and fantastically fun -- turntablist is back, with his "12-bit blues" Vinyl Vaudeville tour, which sounds like a hoot. Using old school sampling tools and a bit of analogue magic, he's set to take us back to the good ol' days of all this hip-hop dance music stuff. With Adira Amram and the experience. 

Sun/4, doors 8:30pm, 9pm, $20. Independent, 628 Divisadero, SF. www.independentsf.com

 

DEATHFACE

Hardcore rave in 2012: thy name is Deathface, and thine origin is Brooklyn. A perfect capper to your two-week Halloween bender, the duo spaz out gabber-style with horror movie effects and post-banger freaking. Some of it's a little precious, but still worth your fist-pump.

Mon/5, 9pm, $10–$12. Elbo Room, 647 Valencia, SF. www.elbo.com
