Underground Nomads is 1 year young this week!
Well. it creeped up on us without notice. We kicked off Underground Nomads with Cheb i Sabbah‘s Outernational mix on Tuesday June 4th at Bissap Baobab Village. 364 days / 52 weeks later, we are still going strong at F8 – 1192 Folsom.
The intention of Underground Nomads was 3-fold: To resurrect the “Outernational” vibe that Cheb i Sabbah had created with his legendary Tuesdays at Nickies BBQ in the Lower Haight (his weekly that ran 17+ years); To bring him back out playing for his fans for as long as he would be able to (following the Nickies Flashback event, we realized that his “happy place” was playing for his fans – which he continued to do until his last days here); and to preserve the integrity of truly eclectic world music and dance performance art – a torch that the next generation of DJs, dancers and musicians who were inspired by his music would carry in his honor.
Tuesday nights continue at F8 with a growing roster of resident DJs and dancers. This week, we feature a dancefloor DJ set by DJ Suresh with performances by resident dancers Laila Astar and Sadira, plus special guest Lisa Hyde.
Join us on any Tuesday (see calendar page for weekly lineups) at f8, 1192 Folsom St, SF. We begin at 9pm with music to set the tone for the night, dance performances at 10pm, and dancefloor DJ sets following. F8 has a great bar, awesome sound system and nice wood dancefloor. Note that this is a 21+ club. Cover is $5 at the door. Free before 9:30 if you ask.
