A Digital Detox w/ Salami Rose Joe Louis, Foxtails Brigade & MPHD

On Thursday, August 1st, Everything Ecstatic is putting on another show and this time, we’ve teamed up with Yondr to make it phone free! That’s right folks…dude who puts his phone up the second the music starts and records the whole first song? Gone. Homegirl who scrolls through Instagram instead of watching the bands. See ya!

If you’ve gone to a Dave Chappelle or Jack White show recently, you’ve probs seen what Yondr does. They make these little sleeves to pop your phone into at a show so you can’t pull it out ’til it’s over. I know, I know…this is what it’s come to, to ween us away from our phones at live events, but damnit if we don’t need it sometimes. They’re also based out of the Mission and I’m stoked to collab with them on this show…And what I love about booking this showcase, is that it illustrates how it’s not just major acts that benefit from a phone-free experience, it’s local and emerging artists as well (and it’s also just $5 at the door at Amnesia on Valencia St; full details at this link)

With that, here’s a bit about the all-Bay Area lineup!

Salami Rose Joe Louis

Recently signed to Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder records, Salami Rose Joe Louis is the project of producer/multi-instrumentalist Lindsay Olsen. Her music is a trip into outer space for people who are standing on their own two feet. Dig it.

Foxtails Brigade

A total fucking staple in the Bay Area scene, Foxtails Brigade are a baroque-pop group helmed by singer Laura Weinbach. Collectively, they’ve been putting down one of the strongest live performances in the Bay for a minute.

MPHD

A tech-house producer at his core, MPHD is a shape-shifting DJ who’s a staple in SF. We premiered his Repetition EP last year and it’s a short, but steady slap.

Analog Time Machine: The Warriors (40th Anniversary) at The Roxie

Well this is exciting… Everything Ecstatic is presenting a movie at the Mission District’s iconic Roxie Theater! And not just a plain old movie, but a full-blown “cult classic party” celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Warriors, with an immersive evening of film, music and beer. We like to call this little endeavor, Analog Time Machine. 

Here’s the gist: Analog Time Machine is a film, a DJ set to start the evening featuring music from and inspired by the film and themed beers from our friends at Local Brewing Co.

The Show: Thursday, May 23rd at the Roxie Theater on 16th St & Valencia. Music at 845, film at 930. Sharp. Tickets are $15 here.

The Film: Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic, The Warriors tracks a New York subway gang on a mythic 30-mile journey from the north end of the Bronx to their home turf in Coney Island. Their only obstacle is every street gang in all the five boroughs.

The Music: A 45-minute DJ set by our boy DJ Nutzeffekt, with music from and inspired by the film. Think Joe Walsh’s iconic “In The City” and old school soul-sample-addled Wu-Tang cuts.

The Beer: SOMA’s Local Brewing Company will have fresh cans of their Chasing Haze IPA (a double hazy IPA loaded with Citra hops and a touch of Mosaic and Hollertau Blanc hops too) and Honey Punches of Oats Pale Ale (A Spring seasonal pale made with honey from the beehives on the Fairmont Hotel’s rooftop hives…seriously)

RSVP to the event on Facebook, scoop your tickets and see y’all in the Mission on May 23rd! Caaaaan yoouuuu diiigg ittt!!!!!

Classic Simpsons Trivia at Cafe Du Nord: Space Coyote Edition

Everything Ecstatic is bringing a very special evening of Classic Simpsons Trivia to Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco on Sunday November 18th! And this time around, it’s the Space Coyote Edition, celebrating the finer points of El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Homer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer), you know…the Carlos Castaneda-inspired episode where Homer eats a Guatemalan Insanity pepper and goes on a quasi-peyote trip? Yup, this is happening. Themed menus, killer prizes and more…here’s the scoop:

Trivia: Four rounds of Classic Simpsons Trivia (seasons 1-10 only!) Your hosts are local media oafs Adrian Spinelli and Zack Ruskin.

We’ll be showing episodes in between rounds!

Prizes: The grand prize is a special one… We teamed up with cannabis brand Space Coyote, who make the delightful Hash-infused pre-rolled joint to give away a really snazzy Space Coyote embroidered denim jacket. I mean…take a look at these beauties! ❤

We’ve also got a ton of vintage Simpsons swag to give away, concert tickets to shows at Du Nord, bar tabs and maybe an extra something something from Space Coyote (which you can btw, order online here or get at Sparc dispensary in SF.)

The Food: Not gonna lie, this is the best part. Chef August Schuchmann of West of Pecos restaurant on Valencia has put together an awesomely outrageous Simpsons-themed menu. Check it:

– Carnitas Tacos w/ Merciless Pepper Sauce from Quetzalacatenango (or without…but the inmates who grew the peppers deep in the jungleprimeval of a Guatemalan insane asylum worked really hard to make it, so give it a shot!)

– Chief Wiggum’s Hearty Chili – Chili Colorado style with thick beef chunks and “rich creamery butter” (not really on the butter, but at least you won’t need to coat your mouth with candle wax for this one)

– Little Lisa Simpson’s Vegetarian Enchiladas – (Butternut Squash Enchiladas topped w/ queso fresco & fried sage) Paul and Linda McCartney approved!

– Psychedelic Green Chile Mac & Cheese – (It’s very cheese-diddl-diddly-iddly-doodl-y) [begins tripping out]

– You Don’t Win Friends w/ Harvest Salad – Actually, it comes with butter lettuce, jicama, corn, queso fresco, avocado, crispy garbanzo beans and and green goddess dressing….so maybe you DO win friends with this particular salad?

– Follow The Tortoise to Chunky Guacamole & Chips. (Please don’t kick the tortoise, you’ll still get the guac & chips)

Drinks: Cafe Du Nord bar manager Jean-Luc Cardenas is creating a Flaming Moe shot this time around! The ingredients are of course a secret. He’s also crafted a “Space Coyote Cocktail” (we’re really hammering the theme home here…I know) with Mezcal, Serrano Chile, Lime, Honey-Chile Syrup and a Black Salt rim)

 

That’s it y’all….Sunday, November 18th from 6pm-9pm at Cafe Du Nord (2174 Market St. in San Francisco) Doors open at around 5:30 and GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!
