Go BANG! w. DJ Jerry Bonham, Celebrating The Trocadero Transfer!

**SAT/OCT/05 Go BANG! Presents DJ Jerry Bonham : One Night Only! A Celebration of The Trocadero Transfer!

Saturday October 5, 2019, you are cordially invited to join us for Go BANG!’s 5th Annual Tribute & Celebration of San Francisco’s legendary discotheque, The Trocadero Transfer, on the 41st anniversary of its opening! The Trocadero Transfer, launched in 1977, 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 Viteritti, Robbie Leslie, Lester Temple, and Go BANG’s Steve Fabus!

Additionally, one of the parties which inspired the creation of Go BANG! was White Light Productions' Trocadero Tribute party - Remember The Party - in which Legendary San Francisco DJ JERRY BONHAM provided the soundtrack for the evening. We’ve hoped and prayed to one day have Jerry on the Go BANG! Stage and this dream has come true! We are beyond honored and excited! For this special occasion, Jerry will be your DJ for the whole evening. Be sure to be there for liftoff all the way through to landing, on this amazing once-in-a lifetime journey with us!

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 our disco balls!

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 also be celebrating SERGIO’s 43rd Birthday! He asks that people come decked out in their favorite “disco ball”/”mirror ball” ensembles! No cake! Presents are accepted in the form of his favorite dish, chicken ala king. Also, pay the door cover! Give him lotsa hugs!

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 Disco nightlife, with a respectful nod to New York & Chicago.

We have been lucky to do so - for our friends - every 1st Saturday for the past 10+ 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!"

==Enjoy Trocadero Tribute Mixes from last year :)==
