BASS: House, DNB, global beats among LoveFest 2008 Afterparties

DJ DeniseThousands of electronic dance music fans, DJs, and industry participants are parading through San Fransisco’s Market Street today (Saturday, Oct. 4) to the Civic Center, where the fifth year of a tradition that started with LoveParade continues through LoveFest 2008. When The City shuts down the gridlock of bass-bumping floats, there are dozens of afterparties taking place in San Francisco. Here are a few party announcements we received.

All parties run from Saturday night, Oct. 4 through Sunday morning and are in San Francisco. Age 21-and-up unless otherwise noted.

After a full day of House, Techno and Drum & Bass, a good way to mix up the day’s beats is had catching the LoveParade Afterparty with Hookahdome Burning Man Camp, where they’ll have globally influenced dance music with Karsh Kale, Janaka Selektra, Radiohiro, Global Ruckus, and more DJs performing at Club Six, located at 58 Tehama. The event features a separate chill out room with a full service Hookah Lounge. The party goes from 10 pm to 4 am with a $15 cover.

If you’re still looking to get your Drum & Bass groove on, MC Duh, Colonel MC and Manny Vibes host the Official Bay Area Drum & Bass Afterparty at Anu, located at 43 6th Street, just blocks from the Civic Center. Some performers include Bachelors of Science, Method One vs. Kuze, Aye’n, Canadub, and various other local DNB spinners. This party goes from 8:30 pm to 2 am and has just a $5 cover.

Armin Van BuurenThe Official Fifth Annual SF LoveFest Afterparty produced by Spundae & Skills happens at the Bill Graham Civic Center, where Armin Van Buuren (pictured left) headlines with several of the world’s biggest names also playing on two stages. The event includes performances by Above & Beyond, ATB, Colette, and many others just down the street from where LoveFest ends. This 18-and-up party has an $80 cover at the door.

A Breaks party happens After The Love at Mighty from 9 pm to 5 am Sunday, where Aquasky and Plaza de Funk headline a party put on by the Seismic Crew with Samira, Trav and Brett Pinkin also playing sets. Cover is $20 at the door until midnight, or you can get last second pre-sale tickets for $15 at the Seismic website. Mighty is at 119 Utah St at 15th.

Everyone please designate a driver tonight to ensure a safe trip home.
