(Note earlier hours starting in September – we will start at 9 or 9:15pm every week).

Normal weekly schedule – New hours!
– Over the next few weeks, our schedule will be transitioning to slightly earlier hours. We will post each week’s schedule on the website, so check in every week to see Show times.

STARTING IN SEPTEMBER, WE WILL END AT 10PM in the main room. Doors 8, Show 9:15PM – We will have one longer set of performances instead of 2). Following the performances, we will continue the back room after 10pm for open dancing.

F8 – 1192 Folsom, SF. (Folsom & 8th St) 21+

$5-10 sliding scale donation at the door.

NOTE: On 3rd Tuesdays, Peep Show (Drag, Burlesque, Variety show formerly 3rd Wednesdays at Codeword) has taken over the Underground Nomads stage. Look for more themed Tuesdays including ROOTS & RITUAL on 2nd Tuesdays starting in October – curated by Wendy Marlatt, and Dark Fusion on 4th Tuesdays in November, December and January – curated by Ariellah.

With our new scheduling format, nothing has changed for the early part of the night, except we will be transitioning to starting our performances a few minutes earlier. So plan on coming by 9pm for the first set in the coming months (Each week’s Show Times will be posted in the weekly update). Following the show, F8, will be taking over with a new late-night club called VS. All are welcome to stay, and if you all are wanting to continue listening to the signature Underground Nomads global beats into the late night, we’ll move it to the back room for an intimate party.
