Cherry Bomb!: A Rock ‘n’ Roll Pool Party at the Phoenix Hotel this Saturday

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

It’s the middle of September, which means it’s summertime and the livin’s easy in San Francisco. What are you going to do this weekend to celebrate those long awaited rays of golden light  finally shining down to warm your skin in the city otherwise covered in fog? How about lounging poolside at the coolest, kitschiest motel in the city?

This Saturday, Sex+Design magazine present Cherry Bomb! – a rockin’ rollin’ ALL DAY POOL PARTY at the infamous Phoenix Hotel. And you only have to pay $10 to hang out with a stylish bunch of trendsetters as you launch cannon balls into the pool and splash girls in itsy-bitsy bikinis. You may as well drink a few cocktails and dance to some bad ass tunes.

Enjoy special ROCK sets by:
M3 (Black Pancake Records, Green Gorilla Lounge)
Tasho (Stompy)

Stunner of the Month will also be present, so you can be sure to rock some shades that even the hippest hipsters don’t have yet. If you’ve never heard of them, check out For just $9 a month, you can sign up to receive a new pair of hand selected sunglasses just for you shipped to your home. Their motto is, “To change the way you see – and the way people see you.” I mean, you can never have to many pairs of shades, right?

The party is hosted by Veronica and Nico, the founders of Sex+ Design. If you ask them to explain why they chose the title of their ‘zine, they answer, “The word ‘Sex’ represents the debaucherous, messy, fun and impulsive side of life while ‘Design’ stands for purpose, articulation, sophistication and beauty.” The aim of their work is to find a balance between these two ideas that infiltrate our lives on a daily basis by showcasing racy art, photography and writing.

Yeah, it’s gonna be that kind of party. So, f you like sex, design, cherries, rock music, sunglasses, drinking and pools – see you at the Phoenix this Saturday. The only downfall is that you may have to hop over a few bums passed out on the street in the Tenderloin on the way over – but I have a feeling you can handle that.
