7″ Party Tomorrow At Pops

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Every experience at Pops is always the same — I’m never there before midnight, I’m always wasted when I walk in and the bartender is often way too nice to me for the state I’m in. I heard about the 7″ Party through a friend of mine who went and spun records with her goddesses of metal, and it turned into a headbangin’, table dancin’ and shot pourin’ good time. No matter who you are, you can bring in your records and play some music, even if you don’t know how to work a turntable. I like the idea of a communal DJ. It insures that the music will probably not suck at some point in the night and that you don’t have to spill your drink all over the same person to get some Black Flag on the speakers. Show up early, since you must sign up with Jesse for the first come, first serve DJ spot. I said it was cool, but I didn’t say it was easy. Also, did I mention $1 Miller High Life all night long? That way you still can afford a quick cab escape route for playing Pat Benetar.

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
