NOTE: Dear friends and supporters. Our co-founder and one of our inspirations for starting the Underground Nomads Tuesday nights has passed after a 2.5 year fight with cancer. The music and support of all of the people from around the world who stepped up to help him with his medical treatments and filled the dancefloors is what kept him going longer than the doctors ever believed possible. He was still coming out and DJing until just a few weeks ago. Holistic treatment kept him healthier for the time he was here than chemo ever would have. He chose the right thing so he could be present rather than slowly fade away. His message to all who love him is to send him off with meditations wishing him well on his journey into the next realm, instead of being sad. Thank you all who joined us in person or via live stream for our Meditation / Prayer Session for Chebiji on Tuesday 11/12/13 in his honor, celebrating his life and music. If you wish to see and hear the live feed, links are at on the Cheb i Sabbah Page. Underground Nomads nights from now forward will be a tribute to the life and music of Cheb I Sabbah.

Tue 9/30: Underground Nomads w/ Amar + Rafael (DJ)


( ( (HOUSEPITALITY) ) ) loudly and proudly turns 4 as we represent the full spectrum of our sound with an amazing, top flight talent from Hamburg and a host of our talented, veteran residents (and some friends): LOVEBIRDS (Freerange, Buzzin Fly, Winding Road | Hamburg) MICHAEL TELLO & MIGUEL SOLARI (Housepitality, Touch of Class | NY/SF):: BAI-EE & SHARON BUCK (Housepitality, SS Records, Touch of Class, | CHI/SF) Groove Lounge: CHUG DEALERS (Housepitality | SF) (Mike Bee, Joel Conway, Jason Greer, JP Soul) Our humble weekly party-turned juggernaut of amazing professional midweek partying is turning 4, party people! (Though really it's turning 16, but more on that in a minute.) From humble beginnings in Kate O'Brian's bar and a stop along the way at a pizza shop, founder Michael Tello's dream for an amazing midweek weekly party has become a true juggernaut, an amazing community for party people of all stripes. HOUSEPITALITY (the HousePit) It's a place where anyone who loves real underground house, techno, and disco can come and dance on a Wednesday, knowing they won't be judged and knowing they can always find really amazing music and an amazing (sometimes TOO amazing) night. (A place that regularly makes Thursday mornings at work suck.) Housepitality began in 1998 but truly came to fruition in 2010 after a long hiatus. Founder Mikey Tello was joined by local Michigan (and Peruvian) transplant Miguel Solari, and the brain trust of Mikey & Miguel (plus their blood, sweat, and unicorn tears) that kept the weekly party going over the first tough year. Through their efforts, the party gained a head of steam (and collection of extremely talented and veteran residents) and folks started (slowly) showing up week after week, knowing that they would be subject to a Friday party on a Wednesday. House heads, party people, DJs, promoters, and industry people could all feel at home and party, know that they would see their friends, week after week... ...a place where they know, that every week: WE GOT YOU! On this, our anniversary, we feature an amazing talent from Hamburg whose name you may not have heard (unless you're a DJ) but whose songs you've definitely heard. He's released on Winding Road Records, Freerange, Buzzin Fly, OM records, Liebe*Detail, Defected... the list goes on. We can't wait to share this talent with you, and we're backing him up with resident and local talent that run the spectrum of what we love here, from classic, acid, vocal, (with Secret Studios) to deep, techy, and fun (Mikey Tello & Miguel). We've got house represented in all flavors and in the back, we've got an SF crew made of of residents and friends who play the epitome of our Groove Lounge aka back room sound: disco, Balearic, funky, groovy, anything-goes-if-it-chugs sound of the supergroup CHUG DEALERS (Mike B, Joel Conway, Jason Greer, JP Soul). Come get some. We'll have lots of treats and surprises for you... come party with us... because you know... we gotchu. xo -THE CREW (Mikey Tello, Miguel Solari, Bryan Bai-ee, Tyrel Williams, Sarah Tedder, Sharon Buck, Fil Latorre, Victor Vega, Luke David Nasaw, Blaine Bleavings-Troxler, Mike Bee, Sean Murray, Joel Conway, Lea Camille) The details: FREE before 11pm with RSVP RSVP at otherwise $5 before 10pm, $10 after FREE champagne from 9pm-10pm $5 Jameson (with mention of Housepitality discount) Streaming LIVE at ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ LOVEBIRDS (aka Sebastian Doering) Lovebirds is the solo project of Hamburg resident Sebastian Doering. Following various excellent singles on much-respected labels like Winding Road Records, Freerange, Buzzin Fly, OM records, Liebe*Detail he found himself dominating all charts with his crossover deephouse soul anthem “Want You In My Soul” featuring Stee Downes last year. The first Lovebirds release appeared on Trax of Interest in 2000. Back then it was only a side project for releasing deeper stuff than what he was doin under his main project Kneedeep. In 2006, having built up a repertoire of unsigned material, he sent a CD to John Buckby, label owner of Winding Road Records and a mutual friend of Vincenzo. The Lovebirds sound is like a blast from the past with house steroids packing serious production muscle. Listening to Lovebirds is like taking trip back to the 70s and 80s - but riding in a gleaming futuristic spaceship. The first Lovebirds single on Winding Road was the ‘Modern Stalking’ EP, which came out in 2007. The EP contained tracks of mid-tempo house, each coming from a different musical angle and giving the world a taste of what he was capable of. It was received by the deep house and neo-disco community with open arms. Top-flight DJ’s such as Prins Thomas, Ashley Beedle and Jimpster went wild for it. Bill Brewster made the EP the Single Of The Month in iDJ magazine. Lovebirds had landed. Since then he was responsible for a huge number of clubhits including deephousemasterpieces like “M.U.S.I.C.” (on Vincenzos and his very own imprint TEARDROP), the modern deephouseclassic “In The Shadows” (on Winding Road) or dancefloor bomb “The Rat” (on Freerange) peaking in the modern deephouse masterpiece “Want You In My Soul”. More than a million views on youtube, best selling single on in 2011 … this track was and actually still is everywhere. Although the Lovebirds name has burst onto the scene only a couple of years ago, Basti is no beginner in the production game. Basti formed Kneedeep, together with old friend Toddie Freese in 1998. Knee Deep became a household name in the dance scene, leading to international DJ gigs and mountains of remix work. As Kneedeep, Basti has remixed Jamiroquai 3 times, as well as Bob Sinclair, David Morales, Brandy, and many others, even winning the prestigious “best remixer” category in the 2002 German Dance Awards in the process (beating Timo Maas along the way). Also their epic “Nassau Rules” was voted track of that year in DJ magazine. A few years on, Basti had achieved all he wanted to with Kneedeep, and was ready to move into more deeper, melancholy musical avenues. And so Lovebirds was born, which is now his main project. His production experience means that he is able to finish well-rounded tracks off in a matter of days, constantly building a repertoire of classy dancefloor and mellow sounds all destined to wow the world. The process is well on its way already. The cream of the dance world has its eyes on Lovebirds. Tom Middleton is a big fan. Jimpster has just signed up some tracks for his third EP on Freerange. Ben Watt is in regular contact and has signed a track for one of his recent compilations. Basti is involved in fruitful collaborations with Ben Westbeech, Holly Backler, Lisa Shaw and other artists. His Track “Falling” for Ben Westbeechs current album was chosen to be first single among big names like MJ Cole, Soul Clap, Hendrik Schwarz, MCDE … and was a huge clubhit including some stunning remixes from Deetron. -------------------------------------------------------------- MICHAEL TELLO & MIGUEL SOLARI Michael Tello Michael Tello was born in Hollywood California in 1978. The son of Latin parents with an eclectic taste in music, he was exposed to a wide variety of genres, ranging from the tribal rhythms of South America to the cutting edge, electronic sounds of the early 1980's. At age 12, Michael's dad Galo, purchased a DJ set up with turntables, mixer & microphone and asked him to hook it up. After the difficult but intriguing task Michael had found a new interest and love for the art of DJing. He began experimenting with his mom and dads Disco, Salsa and Funk 12” records and 45’s and has been rocking the decks ever since. At one of his dads legendary house parties in the early 90’s Michael’s cousin gave him a mix tape simply labeled “HOUSE”, he remembers playing it and loving the repetitive Disco / Alternative rhythms and seeing his older cousins and family dance all night. Soon after he decided to check out his local record store and picked up his first 12” records. Mikey is one of SF's greatest musical success stories. Originally from southern California, Mikey made SF his home, and, through years of throwing parties, DJing, and producing music, eventually used this city as a launchpad to an internationally successful career in music. As part of the band PillowTalk, along with Ryan Williams and Sammy D, Mikey's musical talent was finally displayed to a worldwide audience. The next step after successfully touring internationally was starting a label, and Mikey wasted no time in beginning his label "Touch Of Class Records," along with his friend and musical partner Ray Zuniga.
