IDP Flyer Intelligent Dance Party 004

The fourth event in the San Francisco-based Intelligent Dance Party series kicks off 2016 featuring a mix of live experimental and IDM performances progressing later into more dancefloor-oriented sets. On Friday, January 8, 2016 Glenn Jackson, KnobGoblin, Tony Manfre & Liz Revision perform at The Basement, 222 Hyde St, San Francisco, CA 94102, a multi-leveled 21+ venue from 9:30 PM – 2:00 AM.

Tony Manfre VINYL + HARDWARE [Forestville, Ca]

Liz Revision (San Francisco)

Renzo Gorrio was inspired to create a San Francisco IDM night from his experiences at the Miami-based label Schematic parties in his hometown. Often they featured live acts with an emphasis on electronic performance. DJs were used to warm up the crowd or segue into a more responsive late-night dance party mode. A similar focus remains in the San Francisco incarnation where the focus is on live performance in intimate venues that provide a unique opportunity to watch musicians perform their craft up close.

Previous IDP parties held at Underground SF were a success, featuring Romulo Del Castillo (Schematic, Phoenecia), bioMecanicoXanopticon (Hymen Records), Wake (Proximal Records) and  Alexandernaut (Gray Area).

Live experimental/IDM performances progressing later into more dance floor oriented sets. For your smart ass.

[Sa. 3.7.15] Liz Revision, BenmeR @ Emporium for Chiditarod 1pm-5pm #rodx


Fight hunger this Saturday and partake in the spectacle of “probably the world’s largest mobile food drive.”

Chiditarod is an Epic Urban shopping cart race based on dog sled racing, a charity food drive, costumed beauty pageant, talent show, fundraiser and chaos generator all in one. All proceeds benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the CHIditarod Foundation.

Donate at least $10 now to help SGC move up the leaderboard (currently 6th place).

This is a checkpoint for Chiditarod Chicago, so on Saturday there will be sweaty costumed people running around, food for purchase, arcade games to play, and an an actual race in progress. The soundtrack will be provided by real humans:

1-2:30: Liz Revision (Glitchy techno / arcadetronica)
2:30-5pm: BenmeR (Live visuals)

Catch the starting line at 12:30 pm at Wollcot and Hubbard to witness an effluence of creative costumed humanity setting off on their race courses. Racers will arrive at Emporium Arcade Bar around 1pm.

I’ll be playing an upbeat, dancable arcadely-themed set, with melodic minimal techno, 8bit, glitchy weirdness, IDM, etc. And playing some new Quantazelle tracks for fun. Yeehaw.

I’ll be at BlueBazaar this Saturday in Pilsen with some nerdy plushies and geeky gifties


Pop-up retail events are super trendy these days, and I’ll be part of one in Pilsen (through Fractalspin) on Saturday just to maintain my credentials.

I kid! It’s actually a craft fair called Blue Bazaar, a fundraiser for a neat entrepreneurial technology-slinging non-profit called Blue 1647. It’s a year-old nonprofit technology innovation center focused on “education, workforce development, business acceleration, and economic development in technology”-related things. What that means is they have classes, office space rental, a incubation program and three (3!!!) 5th generation Makerbot 3D printers, free computer usage for members, classrooms, and office rentals to entrepreneurs and budding organizations to aid in making their visions reality (as if the 3D printer thing wasn’t enough). Also, Harper Reed–who might have helped with a presidential thing a while back–is on the board, which might have helped make me aware of them. Pretty cool, right?

So, the cause is great, and I didn’t have plans that day, and it just so happens I have a bunch of inventory that I’d rather not have to pack when I move to the new place. I’ll put “magic stickers” (some people call them Sale Tags) on some neat things I sell that will give some lucky folks a sizable discount when they walk away with cool things like Circuit Board Luggage Tags, Cable Ties, Microcontroller Cufflinks, Goofy Plush Hearts,Giant Testicles, Magnetic DNA Plushies, and more.

If you’ll be on the South side on Saturday and you’ve had your eye on something, now’s the time to negotiate. Ask away!

Here are some of the other artist / vendors who are exhibiting:

Lucky Skye

No Rush Imagery

Tortoise Belly

Knock Down Barns wooden game

Come out and say hello, and check out neat stuff on a Saturday!
