Radioactivity (P)recap

Radioactivity on SFWEEKLY!!!

Radioactivity @ 222 Hyde (Fri.) For those looking to kick start the weekend as soon as Friday happy hour hits, Radioactivity fills the early evening with lots of good tunes. At 222 Hyde, DJs Tristes Tropiques and Robots.In.Heat spin a mix of Krautrock, post-punk, cosmic, minimal synth, Italo, and other "weird and funky shit" between 6 and 9 p.m. Radioactivity is free, and it comes with a happy hour special: $8 for a pepperoni pizza and a beer.

Upcoming Things

annual philly pilgrimage @ medusa lounge:

From Philadelphia CityPaper:

"So it’s the day after Christmas and your all full of cookies and candy canes and whatever other over-indulgences you’ve shoved down your throat. Your broke cuz of society’s pressure to consume excess nothingness (and ya know that recession thing people talk about). But damnit, you still want to go out to drink and dance! I’m sayin’ you could probably mosey on over to this spot for some cheap beverages plus nice sounds, and have ya self a grand ol’ time. San Francisco’s Tristes Tropiques is bringin’ his unique and moody stylings of electronic post rock dance hybrids. Hopefully he’ll bring some of that west coast warmth with him."

Get ya afternoons poppin' with some grub, dranky dranks and smooth music vibes!
w/ Tristes Tropiques, Ed Blammo, No Arms

Funky Bongo Re-bop

Re-bop yr attitude dude! Nice clap-along, sing-along road trip jam on ZE. French sounding too adds to the alluuuuure. I think this band was a downtown party band at the time?

Funky Nassau. Proto-disco. Tropical sounding since they are Bahamanian.

Incredible Bongo Band, responsible for the famous Apache sample, tearing it up here with a BONGO SOLO. Lots of reverb in the bongo room.
