With the dust just starting to settle from Burning Man and summer almost over, the fall quarter is upon us. So, in the spirit of the season, SF record label Dirtybird brought its quarterly showcase to Mezzanine last Friday.
The Dirtybird Campout in Silverado, Calif., may be just weeks away, but these dirty players had no problem slaying some sick beats for the masses. Kicking off the night was Dateless, followed by the adorably foul-mouthed J.Phlip and Sacha Robotti. Christian Martin was up next, dropping an eclectic mix of 70’s disco and trap before DJ Worthy closed things out.
Although the venue was crowded, entering Mezzanine was a lot smoother than it had been in the past for Dirtybird quarterlies. With a packed house, the club provided bottle service on the top floor, bartenders to keep the drinks flowing and a wonderful light show that synced with the beats being produced onstage. As the music continued to bump through the night, some recognizable artists like J.Phlip and Robotti were spotted roaming the floor.
The night was filled with positive energy until the wee hours of the morning as the crowd was made up of hardcore Dirtybird fans and those who were looking to kick off their weekend with some house-infused fun, with a faint chant of “untz-ah untz-ah” coming from a few audience members at one point during the festivities.
