July 22: Dulce Vita | Laila Astar, Asharah, Sadira, Miss Kelly July 29: 5th Tuesday - Festival of the Silk Road Benefit with Miriam Peretz + more(Details on the way).

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. We will be on a regular rotating DJ schedule, with occasional changes due to tour schedules. Check the website for updates and latest schedule. We continue showcasing the finest and most beautiful dance talent available in the SF Bay Area and beyond, bringing a different mix of performers each week. -------- Underground Nomads features residents DJ Amar, DJ Sep and Dulce Vita - and Cheb i Sabbah (honorary resident, co-founder and inspiration) in spirit - 4 of the Bay Area's most eclectic DJs breaking barriers of genre and culture.

Tue 7/22: Underground feat. Dulce Vita


( ( (HOUSEPITALITY) ) ) brings you the flavor of the legendary Moontribe and Tropical parties directly to our dance floor with their most significant selector on this FAMILY TOUR: ::BEN ANNAND (Moontribe, Tropical, Listed | LA:: with 3 hour opening support from ::MARK SLEE (Cityfox, Listed | San Francisco):: In the Lounge: ::DIDJE KELLY - special St. Tropez Disco Set:: ::JASON CURTIS (Seattle):: The details: FREE before 11pm with RSVP RSVP at otherwise $5 before 11pm, $10 after FREE champagne from 9pm-10pm $5 Jameson (with mention of Housepitality discount) Streaming LIVE at ———————————————————————————————————————————————————— Ben Annand One of Los Angeles' top underground house and techno djs, Ben Annand has been an integral part of the electronic music scene since the mid-1990s. In southern California he has been resident at both Moontribe and Tropical for the past 11 years, and has played many a beach, boat, desert, mountain, and warehouse party. Internationally his credits include Wiggle at Fabric (London), Labyrinth Festival (Japan), Propaganda (Moscow), Festimad and Rave Goa (Madrid), and the Aca World Sound Festival (Acapulco), among many others. As long as he's been djing, Ben Annand has been involved in the organization of underground parties - chiefly Tropical, which has occurred 51 times in it's 11-year history. Like his dj sets, Ben's parties are meticulously put-together with the kind of attention that always leads to a quality result. He organizes for the love of throwing a good party rather than personal gain and has made Tropical non-profit: to date the party has raised over $5000 for charity. Recently Ben has been spending more and more time in the studio, and is most excited about making music in 2010. Although extremely accomplished for a dj with no production credits, he is ready to take his musical vision to the next level and hopes to have tracks released towards the end of the year. Together with his djing, event organizing and work as an ESL teacher, 2010 figures to be an exciting and busy year for someone often called a workhorse of the electronic music scene. His music style spans from house to techno and is much better described in music than words, so please check his mixes here: —————————————————————————— Mark Slee Hailing from San Francisco, Mark Slee has been known to wear many creative hats - but two of his all-time favorite fashions are that of DJ and producer. Since co-founding House-Heads in 2008, a collective combining forward-thinking music with a quirky underground vibe, he has gone on to join the Listed Bookings roster and host the monthly mix show Heron Sound on Proton Radio. He is also one half of Manju Masi, a collaboration with long-time partner in crime Atish. Slee’s sets have taken him far beyond his hometown - from Cape Town to Playa del Carmen to Robot Heart. More recently, he has become a regular at the Cityfox party series in New York, often along with his complex LED light installations. Over the course of an obsession with dance music now more than 15 years strong, Slee has evolved a style of deep house that reflects a unique personality, balancing intricate grooves, light dreamy textures, and playful whimsical bounce. Blending the technical with the introspective, he brings an approach to constructing sets that tickle both mind and soul. Rounding things out are his original productions and remixes, which have seen release on such labels as Cityfox, Tenampa, 5 and Dime, and Looq. —————————————————————————— Enjoy handcrafted cocktails by our very own groove lounge mixologist. World class acts, world class music, every Wednesday night.. We got you! Located at F8 1192 Folsom Folsom St. at 8th St., SF Streaming LIVE at 9pm-2am | 21+ | 3 Rooms/


Thur 7/24: Opio and Free the Robots w/ J Lately and Kashmir

F8 is excited to bring you this dope intimate show featuring ... OPIO - (#hierocrew ) + Free the Robots Tunes by: J Lately + Kashmir $5 guestlist before 10:30pm. $10 regular admission Opio: As a teen, Opio hooked up with local rappers Tajai and A-Plus, whom he met through Casual, another emcee who was Opio's classmate and neighbor. The three instantly clicked and began recording together, soon adding fourth emcee Phesto Dee, to form the group Souls of Mischief. Together with Del the Funky Homosapien, Casual, Domino, and Pep Love, the legendary crew Hieroglyphics was born. Opio has always done double duty for Hiero as both an emcee and producer. Opio's recent production credits include the track "Naked Fonk" from Del's recent 11th Hour. Opio's first solo effort, 2005's Triangulation Station, moved over 20,000 units. Vulture's Wisdom, Volume 1 is the first chapter of a forthcoming trilogy from Opio. Vulture's Wisdom, Volume 2 features the single "Bill Collectors" & will be hitting store shelves & iTunes soon. All three Vulture's Wisdom releases are produced by The Architect. Free the Robots: Chris Alfaro always has a new story to tell with his ever-evolving solo project Free the Robots. The next chapter, titled 'The Balance', is exactly that. The sound resonates somewhere between chaos and solitude, where Alfaro has literally found balance. As a musician, beat maker, DJ, and owner of the iconic restaurant / bar, The Crosby, he has always had the ability to jump in and out of other worlds inspiring a unique signature sound that hints at jazz, psych, electronic, and hip hop, while remaining un-genre-fiable. His open-ended imagination and tendency to break free from any boundaries keeps a steady flow of ideas running through his head, constantly moving him forward; away from robotic monotony, ultimately freeing the robots. Rooted in Santa Ana, CA, Free the Robots has spent over a decade taking his craft to audiences around the globe. Known as one of the pioneering artists to come out of LA's beat movement, he continues on building his line up of original recordings in directions still unknown. The energy and technical skill behind his live performances have landed him among the greats, sharing stages with the likes of Dj Shadow, Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, to Afrika Bambaataa. With the recent release of 'The Balance', Alfaro continues to demonstrate a consistent flow of freedom and diversity with his sound. From beginning to end, listening to 'The Balance' will take you on a cerebral journey through your inner world. While you're there, let go of your surroundings and let your imagination run free.

Thur 7/24: Opio and Free the Robots


After a month off to reanimate after Ital & Halal slew us in May, Haceteria returns to F8 in July with another cornucopia of Bay Area freak sounds! When we celebrated the release of the Jacktone Records compilation back in April our greatest regret was not being able to get down with Jacktone co-founder Jay Fields aka EXILLON or arpeggiator extraordinaire CALTROP— now we are righting that wrong by teaming these two nutters up with out sounds from Oakland’s AJA VISION. EXILLON… Fresh from destroying mountain raves with acid techno pulsations Exillon works primarily with Jacktone Records (SF), Katabatik (Oakland), Record Label Records (Oakland). He has releases on Detroit Underground (MI), Frigio Records (Madrid), The Centrifuge (UK), Ad Noiseam (Berlin), Terminal Dusk (US), Component (CT), Puzzling (Liège), and Zod Records (Milwaukee). (In the Boiler Room!) CALTROP… Perpetual voyager of step-sequenced stellar pathways Christoph Caominh is a Bay Area-based artist. Growing up in Munich, Germany, the exposure to electronic music came early in life with European synth hits by the likes of Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Depeche Mode and Jean-Michel Jarre. Being around a Disko B-affiliated record store and club night in the 90s also brought him a diverse mix of underground sounds from Chicago, Detroit, New York, to Cologne, Berlin, and Vienna. He has released originals and remixes on Nude Photo Music, Tigerbeat6, W.T. Records, and Jacktone Records. AJA VISION… Recent instigator of primordial cave raves After hours minimal experiments from Denver native Aja Archuleta (Believe) featuring Valerie Franz (Between Youth) on stylophone/synthesizer and Kim Lindale (Believe/Power Alter) on vocals/programming. Lucid club dreams bubble in the style of sweat drenched, industrial diva house that slowly churns into total empowerment. Join together, close your eyes and see the vision inside. You are feeling AJA VISION... (Live show at LoBot!) With BRAIN-BENDING support from: Nihar Tristes Trop. SMAÇ Jason P 9 p.m. - 4 a.m. Friday, July 25, 2014 F8 1192 Folsom @ 8th $8 About Haçeteria: Club Haçeteria was founded with a desire to bring to light dusty records that have for too long been denizens of the dollar bin along with cuts that have been perched upon a pedestal too far out of reach. Haçeteria also tasks itself with the aim to bring outsider tracks from today to a spotlight pointed on the dancefloor. What started as a nod to mid and late 1980s electronic dance music evolved to a hazy laser guided celebration of acid, rave, and more modern incarnations deeply vested in their analog origins. Situated in a rich and vibrant area, Haçeteria curates locally sourced talent to perform live analog hardware sets.
