WHAT: Bassnectar’s Record Release Bash for “Underground Communication”
WHEN: Saturday, March 31, 2007, 10pm doors
WHERE: DNA Lounge | 375 11th St, San Francisco CA | 415.626.1409
WHO: Bassnectar (AKA DJ Lorin –, Zilla (, the Funginears, Adam Ohana (, Motion Potion (
TICKETS: No presales! $20 tickets available at the door
PROMOTIONAL PARTNERS: Sunset Promotions & Get Freaky
PRESS INFO: Scott Simoneaux | scott [at] | 323.969.04041
DETAILS: On Saturday, March 31 at DNA Lounge, Bassnectar celebrates the release of “Underground Communication” (Om Records) with a massive blowout party at DNA Lounge. More than a standard club show, this multifaceted event will be a “Live Experiment In Sonic Expression” featuring a unique 2-hour Bassnectar performance including dozens of dancers and performance art. The show will also feature live performance from Colorado next-tronica heroes Zilla, puppet masters the Fungineers.
Having already been named San Francisco’s #1 DJ in Nitevibe, the Bay Guardian and SF Weekly, Bassnectar’s national recognition is rising to new heights. Lorin Ashton has earned the love through a constant stream of groundbreaking releases and constant nationwide touring. In 2006 alone, he played more than 150 dates, including headline performances at Shambhala, Sea of Dreams, Symbiosis, All Hallows Eve, and SF Decompression, in addition to his annual pilgrimage to Burning Man. On the new album "Underground Communication" (due out in May on SF Indie Om Records), Bassnectar takes another step forward in his genre-bending blend of musical styles and emotions, combining the visceral melodic presence of modern listening music, with the force and volume of sound system dancehall devastation. Whereas the previous record featured collaborations with musicians and bands, the new record is more of an exploration of hip-hop culture, featuring scores of MCs and rhythmic poetics mashed atop a heavy, driving range of tempo and, of course, those signature throbbing bass lines. Rooted firmly in political conviction, philosophical intention and backed by a rabid fan base and dedicated following, “Underground Communication” sets a new standard for the possibilities of merging music, art, new media and social activism.
Boulder, Colorado trio Zilla has emerged like a Phoenix from the ashes of beloved rock group String Cheese Incident. The trio features drummer Michael Travis, bassist/guitarist Aaron Holsten and hammered-dulcimer wizard Jamie Janover. The music itself is a plethora of grooves, beats, and highly percussive breaks which cause the listener to become engulfed within a sonic vortex of sounds encompassing them. The band plays on pure emotion, so each night is different and varied, and no song is ever the same. As pioneers on the eternal quest for brand new kinds of fun, the Funginears integrate vocal percussion, puppetry, poetics, collaborative storytelling and (r)evolutionary silliness to create interactive extravaganzas for children of all ages. Grounded in the healing power of laughter and the visionary potential of co-creative play, Funginears utilize puppets to channel the musical energy of beatboxing and multidimensional soundscapes into a narrative flow, taking the audience on an epic journey through the realms of imagination.

The event is part of Corporate Accountability International's “Think Outside the Bottle” campaign, which raises awareness about the growing global water crisis, and organizes to protect water as a human right, instead of a corporate commodity.

April 7 - Burning Man Town Hall (actual name of event may be changing)


BunnyJam07 is coming up, Saturday April 7th.
It's going to be at the Porn Palace space in SF (mission, near the metreon parking garage).
Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more.
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme" Hop with it.
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year.
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam?
If so, send me a message or email me at sfaaron26 [at]
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.

BYOBW 2007 Sunday, April 8, 4:00 PM
the Bring Your Own Big Wheel race is back and curvier than ever!*
2007 will be the SEVENTH ANNUAL BYOBW, neighbors and police permitting, rain or shine ... there are always prizes, one year featured tighty-whities with custom denim iron-on Lombard Street Skid Marks and other years have featured paintings, string art, shellac plaques, and embroidered knit caps and t shirts, all made by me. Lombard Street is of course not the crookedest street, especially compared to Vermont Street in Potrero Hill, but with a built-in international audience and scenic landscaping, who could resist? Prizes are given for all sorts of reasons, occasionally for being first, always for being last, and as the race is designed for plastic children's toys which are prone to failure when carrying over 80 pounds, winning isn't the goal here - survival is. This is a free event!!!!
