Back in 1988, I hung out for a summer in West Berlin. Yep, this was before the wall fell, when West Berlin was a roiling, hyperactive, neon-crazy island in a sea of Communist repression -- kind of like the most exclusive nightclub in the world.
One of the things that took my breath away: high school kids and college students went to clubs before school. At least the few I knew would met their friends around 5-6am at the all-night club du jour and dance it out for a while before heading to class. "This is the best place in the world!" I thought at the time.
Also: "Why can't we have this?" Well, now we kinda do. Welcome to San Francisco, Daybreaker .
OK, OK, it has no alcohol, and you still have to be 21 to get in. (And it's $15-$20, so you may have to save up that pocket change.)
HOWEVER, this 8am-10am Tue/10 morning dance party at the beautiful Audio Discotech  -- hello, morning skylight! -- looks incredibly promising for what organizers Radha, Brimer, Steph, and Mustafa call "a little mischief." You get music from cutie pie DJ Bradley P. Plus it sounds like a damn fun morning workout! So much better than a gym.
See you there, bright and bleary. Press release:
Over a late-night falafel in Williamsburg a few months back, we mused over an idea. An idea about dancing before the day broke with people we love. About cultivating a community that values camaraderie, self-expression, wellness, immediacy… and mischief. About going to work with our brows slightly dewed from moving our bodies with reckless abandon, sans alcohol but with so much spirit, surrounded by the most amazing people we know.
DAYBREAKER is a morning dance party and community of good-hearted people, and on Tues, June 10th, DAYBREAKER SF will commence.
No more dreary treadmills. No more lackluster mornings. No more dancing only when the sun is down.
With your ticket, you get:
+ good beats by DJ Bradley P + fresh Philz coffee + delicious smoothies + live musicians & performers + occasional costumes + (no booze)
Be a part of something new and different. Daybreaker will set the tone for your day unlike anything has before :)
// Tuesday, June 10th @ Audio — 316 11th St. (btw Folsom and Harrison) // Dance Party: 8 am - 10 am
