the awesome disco and house loving kids at Honey Soundsystem are bringing NICKY SIANO to San Francisco - next Saturday night!

I, for one, will be there. surely I'm not the only one representing the bay area on this board - let's meet up! I'll be the pink haired chick on the dancefloor with the "disco" tattoo.

the 411:

Paradise Lounge
1501 Folsom Street (x 11th)
doors at 9:30 - club goes til 4 - Nicky will probably be going on lateish
$15, 21+ only with ID

c'mon guys, who is in?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Pete, if you actually do show up, I will buy you a drink!

I'm really looking forward to this! too bad I have to work the How Weird Street Fair the next day - but that won't stop me. that's why we have coffee!

anyone else - I would love to meet up!

Wish I could be there as this is his farewell tour and he is retirering from the dj booth.
He was over hear in Manchester England in April of this year and he blew the roof off the Joint!....

Did you know that Nick is a member of The Dark Side.
Mermaid, you think he'll use vinyl?

I will report back and let you know. as long as he rocks the party, he could sing and tapdance as far as I'm concerned! :-P

Soulboy - maybe it'll be like one of Cher's (many) Farewell Tour(s) and you'll get another chance!

I will definitely report back.

this is TONIGHT! I'm getting very excited... better grab a disco nap while I can!

tomorrow in SF is the How Weird Street Fair (Howard Street) which is *the* street fair for the club kids and party people. there are a ton of DJs scheduled, as well as afterparties going all night. I'm working in my company's booth (bunnywarez) all day, and looking forward to some yummy house, tasty breaks, and maybe even a little delicious disco... if I'm lucky.

thanks Mikey - Egypt! how exciting!!

will definitely review Nicky S tonight (assuming I find my *wallet* in time - o noes! I'm 42, but that doesn't mean anything without the appropriate piece of plastic in my pocket...)

some day I will post a mix. I'm here to learn, right now I am so far from being up to snuff on my disco mixing... it may be a while. but, some day! ;-)

have a great trip!

oh, the vagaries of Clubland. we turned up well within the advertised time for the party, and found ourselves out on the street, faced with a locked door.

we ran into several other peeps who were also there hoping to hear Nicky Siano - including one couple all the way from London (!) - so we knew it wasn't that we got the date wrong.

so... home again, home again, jiggity jig. :-/

at this point, there's no way to tell whether it was the fault of the venue (Paradise Lounge SF) or the promoters (Honey Soundsystem). frankly, I really REALLY want to love these kids, because they seem to be into disco and deep soulful house music - in a nutshell, the music I love the best. but right now, they are acting like a bad boyfriend - promising the world but falling far short.

I will give them one more chance. Honey, please, come back to me!

What? A non-event? The party got cancelled and no-one was told?
Did you buy tickets for it? What a bummer! I hope you made the best of it.
You returned home and had your own event, lol.

so the word on the street (actually my BF emailed Nicky's label) is that this will be rescheduled. I certainly hope so! I'll update here when I know more.

Last time I saw Nicky live - must have been 1,5 yrs ago now - he once again simply threw on pre-recorded cds and tweaked the knobs a lot. Having paid 20 euros I wasn't the only one who expected a real dj set for my hard-earned money. Is tweaking pre-mixed, pre-recorded cds - containing f.ex. a tekkno edit of a Barry White track - deejaying? According to everyone who left messages to a popular clubbing site after Nicky's gig, it's not.
