TicketsEvent InfoLights Down Low


When I moved away from southern California, I thought the thing I would miss most (other than my family) was the consistent music scene in LA. But thanks to event producers like Lights Down Low, I’ve pretty much forgot about it. Although, I do miss the bigger LA venues, but I digress.


Lights Down Low have been at it for over a decade, bringing the most well respected underground acts to California for their entire tenure. Seeing as how they’ve booked heavy-hitters SKREAM & Jamie Jones for this Friday, their ten year anniversary will be no different. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll open up your schedule for this unforgettable night at arguably San Francisco’s best venue.

Back in 2012, Alex Young was well on his way to becoming a bright star in the trap scene. Still, his more emotively charged work like SWTRWTHR stood out among the black hole mediocrity of perverted brand management.


Fast forward 3 years, and the better part of 2015 spent in the dark soul searching, and 19 year old Alex Young has emerged anew. He has traded away the trap growing pains for an exceedingly poignant and vocal approach to music. Over the last few months he’s teased his debut album, Coming of Age, with 3 tracks and a short movie. Suffice it to say, Alex’s labor of growing up has definitely bore fruit.

Of all the first families of electronic music: The Brothers Lawrence, The Brothers Macklovitch, and The Brothers Martinez. The most influential and dynamic duo of them all has to be The Brothers Dewaele aka 2manyDJs. For the past 12 years they have been annihilating dance floors across the globe with their eclectic anything goes style. If you looked at a track list you would find Justice next to Journey, Boys Noize next to Blur, or Moby next to Mumbai Science.



An offshoot of the legendary group Soulwax who pioneered many of the grimy synths you hear in electronic music today, 2manydjs brings a lot of the heavy electro synths and style into their own performances. Likely to go down in the Sahara Tent, this set is a must-see. Old school and new school fans rejoice as this may be the most diverse and unique electronic performance of the weekend.


Goose – Synrise (Soulwax Remix)


Paul Chambers – Yeah Techno (Soulwax Remix)


Human Resource Vs 808 State – Dominator (Soulwax Remix)


Tame Impala – Let It Happen (Soulwax Remix)


Metronomy – Love Letter (Soulwax Remix)





RÜFÜS // RÜFÜS DU SOL consistently releases addictive emotive indie-house. New track ‘Say a Prayer for Me’ is no different. The trio are coming off their You Were Right tour and into their far-from-a-slump sophomore release, Bloom, out on Foreign Family and Sweat It Out, January 22. In the meantime, we’ve got 4 singles to sate us. And then Coachella. Our excitement is palpable.

RÜFÜS // RÜFÜS DU SOL – You Were Right

Several songs released over several months, Marcus Marr & Chet Faker’s Work EP signifies silky Chet over anything is certifiably sexy. Throw the soul of Marcus Marr on backing instrumentals and thus is one emotionally charged set. Next up: seeing them play it all live in its dancey passions.

San Francisco! Being in one of the best cities in the country comes with its NYE decisions…With so many options, it puts us, the fans, in charge of exactly how to bring in 2016. Another Planet Entertainment made this a no brainer. With a lineup that’s full of artists that could be headlining their own NYE show, we have THE BIG ONE!



We finally got to go see Bill Graham Civic Auditorium a couple weeks ago when Odesza sold out back-to-back nights at the venue. For such a large venue, it’s surprisingly intimate. There is no bad seat in the whole house. Whether you want to be in a wicked dance circle in the pit, or on the balcony dancing comfortable between the seats, you’re guaranteed to get an eye opening view of the city’s most grandiose venues! Sixteen artists. Three stages. One absolutely unforgettable night. Enjoy the playlist as you get hyped for the best NYE party in the country.
