HONEY SOUNDSYSTEM (SAN FRANCISCO)
w/ special guests
DJ. D. Dee (Pacific Rhythm) + Jen Pea (Subversive)

Advance tickets available at celebritesnightclub.com & Little Sister's on Davie Street

Honey Soundsystem is a collective of disc jockeys, musicians, performers and designers. Co-founders Ken Woodard and Jacob Sperber formed in January 2006, after seeing severe gaps in San Francisco nightlife. They were inspired by pivotal gay underground parties, who offered a take on dance music in direct opposition to what was blaring on mainstream club speakers. Gradually they brought in other DJs with similar tastes before the group finalized its current roster: Jacob Sperber, Jason Kendig, Robert Yang and Josh Cheon. The group bond over a shared love of timeless sounds, iconic imagery, the complete look, indulgent behavior, and most of all, attractive men.



In 2008 they launched a weekly Sunday night party that would run for five years, before ending in October 2013. Their parties host DJ’s from around the world, including DJ Sprinkles, Todd Terje, Prosumer, Boris, Steffi, Horse Meat Disco, Discodromo, Eric Duncan, Derek Plaslaiko, Maurice Fulton, Kink, Ivan Smagghe, Traxx, Silent Servant, Daniel Wang, Hunee, Optimo, Derrick Carter, Portable, Hard Ton, Tim Sweeney, Kim Ann Foxman, Mr. Ties, Honey Dijon, Steve Fabus, Bobby Viteritti, and Mike Servito. Since then the crew has gone on to throw a steady stream of larger, one-off parties and the occasional underground. The crew is known to build massive, elaborate, party-specific installations to enhance their nightlife antics.



Musically, the existence of Honey has shaped and transformed all that was possible for each member. Record labels were formed such as Honey’s flagship HNYTRX, Discaire, and Cheon’s Dark Entries. Together the four resurrected the lost gay porn soundtracks of San Francisco’s Hi-NRG producer Patrick Cowley. Individually and as a team, the four have gone on to DJ critically acclaimed sets in New York, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles and Philadelphia as well as internationally, in Montreal, Vancouver, Berlin, London, Paris, and even the far reaches of Shanghai. Honey are constantly meditating on the historical past in order to inform the future. One can only imagine what the future will bring as the boys continue to grow, hone, and discover what is within reach and possible with their combined talents.

MIGUEL MIGS & LISA SHAW
w/ special guests
DJ Leanne, Yurie, Johnny Jover + The Snap Boys

Advance tickets available at celebritesnightclub.com & Little Sister's on Davie Street

Miguel Migs

Miguel Migs emerged from the 90’s deep house underground scene to become the kind of artist who transcends the stylistic limitations of a genre so very few can. His musical journey began after picking up a guitar in his early teenage years and his first outlet was writing songs and playing in Dub/Reggae bands. Although Migs always loved and listened to all different styles of music, in the early 90’s he connected to the soulful sounds of Deep House. By the mid ’90s he began experimenting with producing electronic dance music. And by the time the new millennium dawned, a string of releases and remixes on numerous leading indie dance labels earned him an enviable reputation among discerning dance music fans worldwide. As Petalpusher, he’d also become a stalwart of the hugely influential Naked Music stable with his original productions, remixes and compilations.

Despite achieving levels of success – both critical and commercial – Migs remains a genuinely humble, self-effacing individual. A globe-trotting DJ, nominated on a Beatport poll as ‘Best Deep House Producer’ who, rather than constantly follows the trends or hype, prefers to let his music do the talking. Thankfully, his music more than does the talking – it speaks to people. Just listen.

Lisa Shaw

Lisa Shaw’s warm, sexy vocals have graced many a house music track since 1995, but Lisa Shaw's name is still fairly obscure. She's a "house diva" -- owner of an anonymous voice that soars above crowded dancefloors at 3 a.m., enchanting listeners, only to disappear a few minutes later. Anyone who's ever gone clubbing has probably heard her -- possibly more than once. Shaw is nearly ubiquitous in the house music scene. She's collaborated with many famous producers, and has appeared on countless compilations.

Her Naked Music release "Always," on which she shares writing credit with Dave Warrin, earned global acclaim and eventually convinced the label to sign her as a solo artist. In 2002, she joined up with Warrin and Jay Denes to form Lovetronic, scoring another hit with deep house track "You Are Love." Naked Music's merge with Astralwerks propelled Shaw to the top of the electronic music heap. Her 2003 full-length debut was recorded and promoted under the Astralwerks umbrella. Other collaborations with Naked Music artists including Miguel Migs and Jay Denes are in the works.
