We had a break, looked at a new venue and decided we would hit the ground running.
Ecker returns with a new venue…
Kid Kameleon [Surya Dub, XLR8R Magazine, San Francisco]
Tinker [False Profit, San Francisco]
Residents: T-Polar, De-Twist, Bloom
After concluding their residency in the Menagerie in July with Submerse, Ecker returns with another belter of a lineup, a new venue and new soundsystem.
McHughs basement is the new venue and guests on the night will be two of San Francisco’s finest in the shape of Kid Kameleon and Tinker.
Kid Kameleon is DJ, promoter, writer, blogger, historian, archivist, and fan of electronic music. He’s been that way for 15 years. He’s from North Carolina, but ended up in New York in the late ’90s and early ’00s. He moved to the Bay Area in 2004, and currently lives in San Francisco. His performances are wild, eclectic, flamboyant, humorous, energetic and passionate, and he is a true believer in the DJ’s unique ability to be a curator and narrator. A prolific mixer, writer and journalist, he keeps one ear tuned to the new and cutting edge and the other to the glories of the past. He spins heads and feet the physical and digital world over.
Tinker is the resident laptop mistress of the long-standing and well-respected San Francisco arts collective False Profit. She has directed the chill stage at False Profit’s annual campout Priceless, curated a stage at Yuri’s Night Bay Area @ NASA Ames (for which she was also a founding creative visionary), and has thrown numerous other legendary underground parties in the Bay and beyond. Performing everywhere from the esteemed Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the Cal Academy of Sciences to dark and dank basement clubs in Berlin, she has shared the stage with the Glitch Mob, Tom Burbank, Deru, Eliot Lipp, Dr. Toast, Random Rab, EPROM, Kid Kameleon, Lazer Sword, David Last, and more. She is a fast-blossoming producer in her own right, creating tunes that are getting noticed within the fertile west coast music scene. Be sure to catch this mischief-maker put smiles on faces and wiggles in the hips of her listeners.

So....our next gig will be the 11th June. It will be the first residents night in a while and will mean alot of new stuff to drop.
After that we have Submerse playing for us. He has been on all our radars for a while now and we had to get him over as part of the Trans lineup.
Submerse has done a recent mix for Big Up magazine which is a great taste of what the man does. He also does a weekly show on SubFM you can check out a December show here

18th June - Acroplane & Ecker @ Mynt
3rd July - Caspa @ Stiff Kitten with Bloom
9th July - Submerse @ Ecker, Menagerie as our Trans event

There will be a few good shows this weekend:
Friday - King Cannibal in the Arts College marks the return of Diston. The last Diston in the arts college was Surgeon and that was one of my favourite gigs ever in Belfast
Saturday - Bloom and T-Polar play in the Empire as part of the Dirty Sanchez party.
Saturday - Boabinga is in the Oh Yeah centre for Pressure
Sunday - We will be playing a Green Party fundraiser in the Pavillion along with Deadman. £5 in and it'll be a right bloody laugh.
