Check out the HOT PICS from last month by Go BANG! Resident Photographer GARETH GOOCH! ::


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 - for the past 8 Years! 

We are proud to call THE STUD our home!

Disco freaks, art school boys & girls, drag queens & kings, boogie-heads, fierce dancers, flashy dressers, sexy girls, hot boys, DJs, dancers, photographers, artists, fashionistas; gay/straight/bi/tri/whateva! Bring your flashiest, trashiest, classiest, sexiest, craziest style; but bring an open mind, big smile, and shoes that will allow you to dance from opening to last call! We will start with fire and end with fire!

Taking inspiration from the classic Dinosaur L. song, "Go BANG!":
"I wanna see all my friends at once
I'll do anything to get a chance to
Goooo BANG!"

John F*cking Cartwright (Save our Stud | House of MORE!)
John F*cking Cartwright is a San Francisco based DJ whose interests span underground disco, funk, soul, boogie, modern nu-disco, and the house that emanates from all of these directions and beyond. John is a proud family member of the House Of MORE! and his history is rooted with Pittsburgh's Edgar Um and San Francisco's Bus Station John. He is also a worker/owner member of the STUD bar in San Francisco, in addition to maintaining a day job in contemporary art. Most often when asked what type of music he plays his answer is "FUN!" and enjoys selectively crafting a set to the party and audience at hand to get all the bootys shaking on the dance floor.

Born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam, Bongz Nguyen aka Lotus Disco is known as the “new young Queen of Disco” and he literally was the biggest DJ out there in that forgotten corner of underground dance music.

After conquering Asia and smashing parties and festivals from Beijing to Shanghai and from Hanoi to Saigon, Lotus Disco took the leap of Disco faith and moved to San Francisco, a city yearning for a DJ jus’ like Lotus Disco. His sets are a ‘musical liberation’ but so much mo’, he is probably the most physical DJ you will witness anywhere.

Lotus Disco sees himself as a drag Queen without make up, he loves and lives the Disco culture and can even be found voguing behind the decks during his explosive and vibrant Disco sets. Now criss-crossing the USA most weekends to DJ, Lotus Disco has been head hunted by UK promoters and record labels alike and is set to take Europe by storm too in 2017. Kaiku Club in Helsinki, Finland invited Lotus Disco to play and the hallowed Horse Meat Disco nights in London also have had Lotus Disco grace their Disco drenched decks. His first compilation album#Love#Hope#Desire will be released by the UK’s favourite Soul stable, Expansion early 2017 and in January Lotus Disco travels back home to Asia to pop his Boiler Room cherry. We can’t wait for the newly crowned Queen of Disco to hold court at SSW and share his gems and pearls of vinyl goodness. Remember where you saw him first!
