Upcoming Gig and tunes in my mind

I've been remiss.. should speak up/shout out the music I've been feeling the past months.

First and foremost: Disrupt, of jahtari. GO there. listen.
Also, many pleasures fromd dropping the tune Stagga Step, by MathHead - wicked wicked dubstep from an american cat who never stays still. I hear he's in folk-rock-land now.. Been feeling a lot of non-English dubstep and dubsteppish sounds, by Timeblind and other mad world-hopping geniuses too.. although Skream is bringin it all back home with his new tune Tapped featuring JME, nicely paranoid in keeping with the dubstep smoke-too-much vibe (thanks blackdown for the mention, btw).
Still rocking out on the decks and on my headphones to Com.A (Japan) and Cardopusher (Venezuela).

And finally another San Francisco gig, and in a club, so all the people who are wigged out by warehouses can come and chill over drinks and such!

Thursday, September 28th
9pm – 2am
Catalyst Cocktails
312 Harriet St (off Bryant btw 6th and 7th street)

Ed Flis (CockRockDisco, PA)
Merk (Apocalypse/Virus, NYC)
Ripley (Death$ucker, Havocsound)
Jack Clang (Havocsound)
Heartworm (5lowershop/DTrash)
R-Type (5lowershop/TeenSuicide)
Sour (Havocsound)

How happy am I that Havocsound are starting up bizniss in the Bay? I loved these cats back in New York, keepin it together at the beloved 23Windows warehouse space.. I remember when they helped me organize a benefit party for street medics, it was a perfect event on so many levels and they were so generous with their time and energy, and so good natured and solid on it all.. And then there was that party Nov 2001, it had been planned well in advance of the horrible events that took place about a month before.. THey went through with the event and it was a great moment where all of us warehouse peeps and electronic music peeps and neighborhood peeps kinda showed up to check in on each other. Lots of hugs, closeness, smiles, and some dancing to restore the soul.

so help me welcome the havoc sound to the West Coast on Thursday the 28th!
