While many take some time in November to chill out, and prep for future holiday madness, we’ve never really been ones to follow the rules. Sure, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving Thursday RAGING with some turkey & boozing it up with our extended families, but come Friday 11/27, we’re picking back up, and doing what we do best, partying all weekend long.
First up, we’ve got CHILL HARRIS (aka Kill Paris). What a year this dude has had, from releasing his debut studio album, Galaxies Between Us, to running his own aptly named, independent label SEXY ELECTRIC, Cory Baker aka CHILL HARRIS has somehow managed to squeeze in a North American tour. On Friday, November 27th, Mezzanine will be taken over by CHILL HARRIS & FRIENDS (Illenium & Manic Focus) and they’re bringing their disco beats to the club, and for that, we are extra thankful.
Rounding out our T-GIVEZ weekend festivities is one of our ALL TIME FAVS and quadruple threat ANNA LUNOE. The DJ, singer, producer, and now Beats 1 Apple Radio superstar, makes everything look easy. Hundreds of festival appearances – check. North American tours with The Weeknd – check. Seriously, is there anything this chick can’t do? On Saturday, November 28th, she is bringing her endless skills to Mezz, but this isn’t just any Anna Lunoe show. This is ANNA LUNOE HYPER HOUSE. For one night, Anna Lunoe is turning Mezzanine into a 1200 person, glorified HOUSE PARTY, and bringing some of her fav up & comers (i.e. Sleepy Tom, Jeffrey Paradise, & ATLiens) along for the ride.
THANKSGIVING WEEKEND WILL BE ALL THE RAGE WITH CHILL HARRIS on NOVEMBER 27th & ANNA LUNOE on NOVEMBER 28th – tix @ mezzaninesf.com!
This October a stellar lineup is set to appear on the oceanic gem of SF, but it’s the night shows that really have us raring to go. On OCTOBER 16th APE is bringing the ever-elusive, perpetually-puzzling, experimental techno duo, AUTECHRE to MEZZANINE and we’re freaking out.
The infamous Warp Records duo has been preeeeetty hard to pin down in the States seeing how it’s been a WHOPPING SEVEN YEARS since they last toured over here. We have a strong feeling it’s going to be worth the wait. With the massive album Exai under their belts–fully ready to debut live over here–and the colossal four hour Dekmantel Festival mix just released, they’ve got a lot of momentum, and we’re ready for it!
Earlier this year, the duo known as Art Department made a massive announcement. After 5 years, and an unprecedented rise in the techno community, Jonny White (head of No. 19 Music) and Kenny Glasglow (Canadian electronic legend) announced their separation. While Glasglow’s departure was completely amicable- the news came as a shock to their nearly cult-like fans and followers.
In the 90’s, few artists showed greater promise than New Orleans native rapper Michael “Mystikal” Tyler. With a buzzing, eponymous debut album featuring his signature gritty lyrical chops and dope beats, it looked like the hip-hop world was his for the taking. But taking the easy route has never really been Mystikal’s thing.
