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. Underground Continues in his honor.

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 rotating residents DJs Amar, Santero, Suresh, Sep and Dulce Vita – and Cheb i Sabbah (honorary resident, co-founder and inspiration) in spirit – a niche group of the Bay Area’s most eclectic DJs breaking barriers of genre and culture.

Some of the resident DJs will be spinning monthly (Suresh: 1st Tuesdays, Amar: 2nd Tuesdays, Santero: 3rd Tuesdays, Rotating residents and guests: 4th Tuesdays), with additional guests dropping in from time to time. We will also have nights where any one of us may drop in and crash the party to play a set too.

Resident Dancers include FatChanceBellyDance, Zoe Jakes, Calamity Sam, Verbatim, Kae Montgomery, Rose Harden, Surreyya Hada, Shanti Jourdan, Tatyana, Millie Maddox, Jennifer Faust, Masha and more. Special Guest dancers coming through over the next few months include The Lady Fred, Kami Liddle and the list shall grow rapidly as this new event grows.

We are excited about our awesome venue in SOMA, F8, with a great sound system and dance floor, awesome bar and lounge area, and friendly staff. Easier parking too, and BART access. We will be starting earlier in 2015, at 8pm. Come early for happy hour snacks and cocktails.

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.
