Wondering what to do tonight to celebrate the vernal equinox? Well, apparently the question is what NOT to do, as there appear to be a plethora of amazing options.
Mr. Scruff and Kraak & Smaak @ Mighty SF:: Despite their dubious monikers, these two European acts (from the UK and Holland) deliver some supremely-polished jazzy beats. With supporting DJs Motion Potion, Malarkey, and our buddy Vinnie Esparza, this looks like a night not-to-be-missed. $20 at the door and going until 4am.
Loose Joints @ the Make-Out Room SF:: Legendary DJ and friendly neighbor Tom Thump delivers a weekly dose of funky dance grooves one short block away from fabric8, alongside fellow resident DJs Centipede and Damon Bell. This party happens every Friday from 10-2, so if you don't go tonight then consider it in the future! $5.
Darondo and Nino Moschella @ Shattuck Down Low Berkeley:: Ubiquity Records presents an evening of wonderful live music with 70s soul legend Darondo as well as Nino Moschella, the keyboardist everyone seems to be talking about. 9:30pm. $12.
Society of Saints and Sinners @ the Holy Grail SF:: J-Boogie and M3 take over for Toph One this week at the up-and-coming hotspot on Polk @ Fern, brought to you by the one and only Mark Herlihy (Future Primitive). 10pm-2am. $5, if that, at the door.
Spindig! @ Butter SF:: DJ Stef of Vinyl Exchange has moved her monthly Happy Hour to this funky spot so you can enjoy tater tots, beanie weenies, and junkyard dogs along with your beats and cocktails. 6-9pm. No cover.
