Plucky 15

Tribal Funk celebrates what raves used to be, back when we still called 'em that
|

SUPER EGO When, oh, when, will someone acknowledge properly that Kinko's was responsible for rave — at least the good rave? So many legendary early 1990s parties sprang from adorable Apple IIe addicts frantically photocopying the two-toned fruits of stoned flyer-making labors at 3 a.m. onto Lift-Off Lemon and good ol' Lunar Blue.

Setting Prop 8 on fire at the hottest new underground homosexual dance parties
|
()

superego@sfbg.com

SUPER EGO Phew! I just adore being a second-class citizen again, now that Proposition 8 has passed. It makes me feel so edgy, so alt, so very underground. Thank you, Pope Pius the 5000th and the Angel Macaroni! I finally get to break back out my favorite little victim pumps — you know, the star-spangled ones with exquisite ruby handcuff heels — and shove my overwhelming gayness down those tender asshole bigot throats once again. Confrontational! Read more »

SUPER EGO Happy Slutoween, librul terrorists. Now that the Castro Street celebration has been officially buried, there'll be more terrific parties than tired Sarah Palin costumes haunting Halloween night. Below are 13 batshit surefires, all taking place Oct. 31, night of the living-undead pro-life governor of Alaska. Read more »

DJ Mark Farina shrooms, Umoja Hi-Fi booms, and NonStop Bhangra blooms

SUPER EGO Gurl, she 'sploded. Such as! LoveFest was killer; everyone's ready to party, yes to the hell. Fuck the Dow — we're riding high. And as I gingerly picked my glitter-stilettoed way over the limp bodies of the underaged strewn about the Civic Center pavement — bonjour, toxicity — I couldn't help but get a tad tickly at the sudden blast of youth, however wobbly and wide-eyed, tripping onto the scene. Do they teach Electro Appreciation in high schools now, right between Online Shopping and Intro to Twitter? Read more »

SUPER EGO "I don't know what's wrong with you, but I like it!" some hot soul shrieked at me outside the club. Read more »

Taking in the zentastically huge, newish Temple nightclub
|

superego@sfbg.com

SUPER EGO Gadzooks! I'm lunching with Sen-Sei at Prana, the nifty Thai resto attached to zentastic club Temple, Sen-Sei's hazel eyes reflecting the brilliant curlicues of my ginger-garlic prawns. No, I'm not assuming the lotus position. Not in these heels, Dharma.

Scenesters know Sen-Sei as the classically trained pianist who's been plugging his keys into mixers and tapping out sen-seitional "live house" since the early '90s. Read more »

Electro DJ Sleazemore gets graphic, Milano duo Crookers cook up fidget house
|
()

superego@sfbg.com

SUPER EGO "You've gotta have the graphics," 26-year-old party promoter extraordinaire, Floridian transplant, smart-talkin' electro DJ, and graphically explicit designer Sleazemore (www.myspace.com/sleazemore) recently whispered into my tender, somewhat incredulous ear. "The scene's gotten to a point where it's not only about who you bring in, what you wear, and who's there to document your clubs — it's also about the look you project in your promotions.

Springtime in Clubland looks gorgeous -- and bangers are seizing the day
|

superego@sfbg.com

SUPER EGO Springtime in Clubland's looking gorgeous so far: it could totally move covers and dominate the next cycle. A special double pinkies up to all the fab promoters throwing AIDS ride-run-walk-collapse fundraisers and shining limelight on the No on Prop. 98 campaign. I'd air-kiss you to death, but it would crust my Cover Girl Hipster Neutral No. 140 Lipslicks Lipgloss. Read more »
