Two: the Pretty City crew is throwin’ a Wayne’s World themed eve at Laszlo on February 8th.














There will be costumes, and there WILL be giant licorice ropes. You will be ours, oh yes, you will be ours.

Thirdly, if you are a facebrookerer: here’s a link to the all lady fronted warehouse party I’ll be spinning at on Feb. 4. Also, a link to my new professional sports team.

Double Barcie Waite (costume designer extraordinarre) and double Willis! I’ll be spinning records at Laszlo over in San Francisco while Barcie Waite’s costume design shines up on the wall. I’m projecting Death Becomes Her and Hudson Hawk.

Check out some of the excellent outfits Sandra Bernhard rocks in Hudson Hawk:









silk shorts onsie open on the sides (photo is not doing it justice)









turban magic












spiderweb hat?




Amazing. I’m really into her odd shapes and textures, as I remember Death Becomes Her has a similar vibe in the incredible gowns the ladies wear. And Bruce Willis sports a little mustache.

Ahhhh Pretty City! How I love thee–come visit me at Laszlo this eve (click for directions), I’ll be there 9-2 and Gail will be your amazing mixtress on the bar. She makes a mean cocktail and likes it. Feel free to dress up if you’re inspired by Ms. Waite’s vision. I’m bringing all vinyl and I’ve got some great new stuff to groove you with as well. See you tonite!

As you know, I am making a creepy Babe Cave party happen on the 31st with my friend Sirbo Turbo (aka Robert from Kreamy ‘Lectric Santa)>>here is the frightening flyer my friend Melissa made for the occasion:

The aforementioned M will be in the house painting faces and on hand with various costume items to help you prepare for the evening. Same as usual, 12-4pm at Laszlo (2534 Mission Street//SF)

There are going to be all kinds of things going on Saturday over in the Oaklands as well. I am going to be throwing down some vinyl at one and maybe TWO house parties. Details to follow—for now, here is a sneak preview of my Hiphoctopus costume I have been working on.

Special thanks to Natalie for her sewing help. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

Oakland, another reason to love you and your mysterious ways. Plus that Fred hoodie is almost blowing my mind as much  as young Miss Kreayshawn (and her video-texting) herself. Almost.

and West Oakland is apparently having underground raves? Whaaa?

Someone take me to this magic land where both the black kids and the white kids hang out and get down dancing in my neighborhood!

Let’s not forget the turf dancing that’s happening over in East Oakland

OMG, Janelle (aka Ginger) sent me the base for our new flyer for next week. I told her I was looking for big 80’s plaid and floral>>she really delivered. I added some new faces to the mix AND our movie of the evening and VIOLA! >>>

Killer, right?? We are going to be showing Almodovar’s ‘Women On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” which is FILLED with amazing 80’s pattern fashion. Encouraging you to dress up accordingly. We’ll have some kindof drink special (possibly gazpacho-based???) –Plus, I’ll be playing records ALL NIGHT LONG.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Last night was my first 1st Tuesday over at the Layover—right after comedy night. It’s looking like 1+3 Tuesdays are gonna be funny AND dancy, thanks so much to everyone who came out last night. Come visit me there again in two weeks! First song of the night:

The boys and I (two bar fellows and one doorman) are lookin for a name for our night>>give a shout if you have an idea.

Apparently things got crazier on the dance floor than I realized. Leave the taco eating for the taqueria, madame.

Item #2:

The Local 123 Opening for Christian DeFilippo was great–thanks to Sam for bringing his excellent amp help. I love that spot, coffee and yumminess galore! Plus they serve beer on tap now, and make a lot of their foods right in house. I had a great time, and the art is worth checking out. I dressed up as a figure I thought he would’ve painted, which means I got to wear my favorite black wig AND play records. Score.

An example of his work:

And lastly:

A friendly reminder while we’re on the dj-tip is I am still doing the Babe Cave every Sunday as well. Four hours of brunchy-goodness (Foreign Cinema style–except you eat it with us in Laszlo while I play records–riiiiiiight?? in the CAVE), and right near the 24th street Bart for you East Bayers. Plus FREE DONUTS.

Saw a movie last night I LOVED and decided to base the next Pretty City basically around the amazing patterns and fashion in Almodovar’s Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. Watch the trailer but prepare yourself for the rich color and giant projection on the wall of Laszlo as I spin all kinds of 80’s electro funky records and you sip Super Gail’s rad cocktail of the evening.

All while wearing a pattern>>think PLAID, GINGHAM, LARGE ROSES, 80’s print blouses and pastel business suits with mini-skirt bottoms. AWWW YEA I WANNA SEE IT.

Thinking the second movie might be Who’s That Girl? But taking suggestions…

Pretty City is a thing I’m doing every 2nd Tuesday over in Laszlo (aka the Babe Cave when it becomes evening-time) with my pal Super Gail. She’s on bar, I’m on decks, Ginger brings the fashion and we all have fun. Movies drinks and dancin. 10-2 October 12. GET READY.
