Kosmetik with Steve Fabus

This week Kosmetik welcomes the San Francisco legend Steve Fabus to join us at the forever iconic Stud bar. A person who has contributed greatly to SF's queer dance music culture, Mr. Fabus was a cutting edge DJ within the disco and Hi-NRG scene, DJing popular SF clubs like the I-Beam, Trocadero Transfer, and the End-Up, as well as the legendary NYC club the Palladium. Although Steve Fabus isn't an unfamiliar name to us SF faeries, his history and involvement within dance music and club culture might not be known to most.

San Francisco has a diverse disco scene that often crosses over but not often enough! The goal of Go BANG! is to bring the crews and their devoted dancers together in a mixed, diverse, exciting environment, with a nod to the diversity and freedom of the 70's/80's San Francisco/New York/Chicago disco nightlife!

We have been lucky to do so - for our friends - every 1st Saturday for the past 9+ Years!

We are proud to call THE STUD our home!

Kosmetik Pride with Infinite Jess and Christopher Orr

**The library is OPEN, henny** Come get schooled by Bay Area bosses Infinite Jess and Christopher Orr.

Infinite Jess (Vinyl Dreams) will be kicking the evening off with her selection of rare grooves and classics. An avid vinyl collector and dance music enthusiast, Jess masterfully mixes funk, disco, and house music into a cosmic odyssey. Our guarantee is that the dancefloor will be filled with long-time fans and new fans of this badass babe *clack clack** (plz no excessive clacking of fans)
https://soundcloud.com/edgyatbest

Christopher Orr (orriginal.com) knows more about music than you! Seriously, the man is a walking encyclopedia of dance music history; his knowledge of disco, the orgins of house music, and the beginning of techno is, to say the least, dizzying. Chris was an early ambassador of techno music and contributed greatly to the Bay Area's adoption of the music style through his writings for XLR8R Magazine, cementing him as a local treasure. Honestly, we're embarrassed that it's taken us so long to book him but we feel like the wait was worth it!!!

The Broni Mitchell Show: The WitCHERs of Eastwick

SNAP OUT OF IT! This month, JUST in time for Pride Week, The Broni Mitchell Show Chers their most provocative show yet - the in-depth exploration of the life and artistic career of the original reinventor, muse to Bob Mackie, American TreaCher and the most objectively talented musician of all time, the one-word enigma;


CHER.


In a sleepy Rhode Island town, three best friends, Cher, Cher, and Cher are brought together by fate when they make a deal with the devil (Sonny Bono). From there, it’s a twisting, turning, time-traveling journey through the decades, as Cher, Cher, and Cher meet up with Cher and Cher and Cher in a grand recollection of Cher’s greatest triumphs and most devastating blows.
