Upcoming events!

In what is getting to be a charming bay area tradition, dj kid kameleon and myself are djing the Electronic Frontier Foundation's birthday party... for the third time!

the EFF are a group you should know about, whose news you should follow, and you should probably join or at least support. They are involved in so much kick-assery on so many levels, and their definition of the public good is pretty unassailable. Who's suing at&t and The Government over wiretapping? the EFF are. Who's working to make sure weird entertainment-industry-created requirements aren't skewing our access to education funding? the EFF are. Who's fighting for educational use, fair use, remixers, public access to knowledge, privacy rights, freedom of speech (blogger's rights!) and the freedom to tinker? These guys. (not alone, of course).

Plus it is seriously the nicest group of people. I have certainly never been in a law firm as filled with cameraderie, humor, good nature, and good taste in TV shows as these guys.

Anyway it's their 17th anniversary, and it's time to get down. This year we have some extra-special guests, in the likes of Bootie's DJs: Adrian and Mysterious D! These folks have been holding down a hysterical mash-up party for years now (check out their hilarious flyer archive), and they know whereof transformative use, lemme tellya.

Also on the decks will be Jimmy Tones and dj Qubitsu.. I hear rumors of nerdcore hip-hop and cracked house..

plus, free CHOCOLATE. I've had it, it's good.

It's $20 donation to EFF at the door, but sliding scale - nobody will be turned away!
so there's no excuse not to come out on
