The American Tripps Two Year Anniversary with a Daft Punk vs LCD Sound System Dance Party

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Fuck. I can’t believe American Tripps is celebrating its two year anniversary! I remember going to Allan’s 30th(?) birthday party at ATA and seeing him and all his friends running around in circles while playing something that resembled ping pong. Now he’s got a goddamn cottage industry on his hands (not that I actually know what “cottage industry” actually means). Anyways, here’s all the info from the FB invite:

The first weekend in August marks our 2-year anniversary of throwing Berlin-style ping pong parties in San Francisco, so we wanted to do something big to celebrate. Then we caught wind of North American Scum, the acclaimed LCD Soundsystem cover band based here in SF, and we figured it’d be awesome to book them and use the occasion to pit LCD against Daft Punk, their mentors — and current kings of the airwaves.

So: dance party, DJs, live band, Berlin-style ping pong, drinks, food truck out front, foosball and skeeball upstairs in the mezzanine. We’re getting a TaskRabbit to drive us home so the whole American Tripps crew can party hard without a care. Please join us!

Tickets are for sale here. Don’t forget your dancing shoes and ping-ponging wristband…if such thing exists.
