In Brazil, five summers ago, I was chopping it up with a native Rio De Janeirian, aka a carioca, and I mentioned that I lived in the SF Bay Area. “San Francisco?!” he exclaimed, “That’s the most beautiful place in the world!”
Keep in mind, he lives in Rio De Janeiro, which looks like this:
So, after 8 years, almost to the day, I am leaving the most beautiful place in the world for LA.
There shall be more reminiscing posts to follow, but for now, I am celebrating (is that the right word?) my farewell this week at two events:
THURSDAY AUG 28:
DEVIL’S PIE – LOVELEE EDITION | 1-YR ANNIVERSARY
In August 2007, after quitting my job and touring Southeast Asia, I linked up with David, Dennis, Dan, Paul, Mayra, and the rest of the family at Namu Restaurant & Bar to start a party that I had dreamt of doing for several years. One year and six soul tribute nights later, we’ve come to the end of my reign as organizer, promoter, and resident selector for Devil’s Pie, my twice-a-month Soul party.
We’re celebrating our first birthday with a set from one of the Bay Area’s most important and influential tastemakers: DJ Lovelee.
FRIDAY AUG 29:
LIBRE – DJ PHATRICK’S OFFICIAL FAREWELL PARTY
This might be one of the last times you’ll see the Trick N Treat DJs (DJ Treat U Nice, DJ Phatrick, and emcee Do D.A.T.) rock a party together for a long time. If you’ve ever been to the legendary Hella parties, or any other party where Treat and I have spun together, you know that I know that you know that the world knows that Trick N Treat will keep you on the dancefloor for a solid 5+ hours.
