Go BANG!'s Trocadero Transfer Tribute! w. Steve Fabus & Friends!

**SAT/OCT/06 Go BANG! Celebrates The Trocadero Transfer! Starring Trocadero Resident DJ STEVE FABUS & Arc Light Diva CARLA! Guest DJs Andrew Deloza & John "JC" Carollo! With Go BANG! Residents Prince Wolf + Sergio Fedasz! DISCO Action!**

Saturday October 6, 2018 you are cordially invited to join us for Go BANG!’s 4th Annual Tribute & Celebration of San Francisco’s legendary discotheque, The Trocadero Transfer, on the 40th anniversary of its opening!
The Trocadero Transfer, launched in 1977, more recently known as The Glas Kat and The Grand, played host to more than three decades of San Francisco’s dance music history. Under its famous disco ball cluster, legendary disco parties ran all night long, guided by selectors like Bobby Vitteriti, Robbie Leslie, Lester Temple, and Go BANG’s STEVE FABUS!

Trocadero Transfer Resident DJ (& Go BANG!’s own) DJ STEVE FABUS will be taking you on a journey deep into the night! The Trocadero Transfer's very own Arc Light Diva CARLA ANN NICHOLSON will be working **DOUBLE** Arc Lights all evening, providing unforgettable ambiance in tune with the music played through the night, reflected upon the disco ball cluster she has created!

The Arc Lights are courtesy of the legendary RANDY SCHILLER, another beloved friend of the party and San Francisco Legend! Randall Schiller Productions is the sound, lighting and video company which built many legendary discos including the I-Beam, the Kennel Club (the Box), Trocadero Transfer, the Detour, the Badlands, and so many more clubs.

We will be welcoming - for their Go BANG! Debuts

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!

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!

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!"
