Sure Thing: Wata Igarashi (JP) & Aaron J

Join us in a vision of techno that reaches for the skies.

We are proud to welcome the debut of Japan's Wata Igarashi (Midgar, The Bunker NY, Time To Express), an artist whose vibrant and hypnotic output has placed him at the forefront of contemporary techno. Emerging from a background of improvizational jazz and classical composition, Igarashi's productions and performances warp and evolve in beautiful and uncanny ways, often leaving us breathless. Witnessing his debut set at Berghain was a moment of revelation for us, and from that moment onward we knew this event needed to happen. In the spirit of the journey, both Wata and Aaron will be playing three-plus hour sets to carry you through the night.

We are also excited to partner with The Stud, a queer co-op venue we admire greatly for their history and mission, and Society Sound, who provided the pristine sound for our anniversary party with Marie Davidson and Takaaki Itoh. Above all else, we are working with both groups to ensure an inclusive and immersive environment for all of our guests.

This event falls on a particularly busy weekend for San Francisco and The Stud, so we will have fewer pre-sale tickets than usual and prioritizing room for everyone to dance. If you choose to purchase tickets at the door we highly recommend arriving as early as possible, and we will be opening earlier than usual to help you beat the rush.

We're excited to be back. See you on the dance floor!
