Dear supporters, Please note that we are moving to a new venue at the end of the month.
We are excited to be moving to F8 at 1192 Folsom St. (@ 8th) in the SOMA area of San Francisco. The new venue has an awesome sound system, nice and still intimate dancefloor, great bar with some excellent drink specials, and an overall nice friendly vibe.
Kicking off our residency at F8, we will have more nights with Cheb i Sabbah – August is Cheb i Sabbah Month !
Moving forward, we are planning on having 2 DJs (or one DJ and one live act) each week. We will still have the dance performances. We are not taking anything away, just adding more. We plan to bring in occasional special guest DJs and music acts. We will also be starting a little earlier, so you can enjoy some Happy Hour drinking and snacking while we get the night rolling.
We have loved doing nights at Bissap Baobab, and will continue to do occasional events there, but this move opens up some amazing new possibilities us as well as for them. Please join us at F8 on any Tuesday on or after July 30th.
The resident DJs are on somewhat of a regular monthly rotation. Due to our tour schedules, we may be occasionally swapping weeks. For example, Amar and Dulce are switching nights for August, so Dulce can rock it out at Burning Man. Cheb i Sabbah will be traveling in October to work on his upcoming new album, so we will be filling in for his nights. You can always check the website for the most up to date schedule if you wish to see a particular one of us on a night. We plan to post our schedules at least a month out, and will post any changes as soon as we are able to.
Below is our schedule for our July 30 Launch and for the month of August. We will post all of the details once we confirm the lineups. Please check back in after the weekend or subscribe for updates. You can also find our updates on the facebook page. Help us spread the word by sharing this post on facebook and twitter and following us there. We thank you for your continued support.

The dancefloor: separated from the bar, nice wood floors, clean but not too fancy.
Our view of You from the DJ booth – nice and close 🙂
Some couches for you to lounge in, relax and have a drink, hang out with friends.
