We heart Blond:ish. No, really, we do. The Canadian duo has come a long way since their weeklys at Cherry in Montreal back in 2007. It was there that Vivie Ann Bakos and Anstascia D’elene first established their chemistry. Fast forward to 2015 and the girls have records on a number of today’s most revered imprints — from Get Physical to Kompakt. Not to mention, the past few years have seen them land some of the most sought-after slots in notable clubs and festivals across the globe.

Something else that seems pretty obvious if you follow these girls through social media, is how much fun they seem to have — more than the average Joe at least. Ahead of their show right here at Public Works this Saturday, we compile seven photos prove the Blond:ish girls have more fun.

ICEE HOT :::::: SAN FRANCISCO BASED RECORD LABEL/MONTHLY CLUB NIGHT. IT IS A FEELING. **NO SET TIMES**NO PARTY PHOTOGRAPHERS NO GUESTLIST NO REQUESTS NO CRYING NO HULA HOOPS YES VIBES YES JAMZ YES RAVE RAIN YES PIZZA. IF IT’S CUTE, LET IT HAPPEN

Our favorite party and record label named after a slushy iced drink is saying goodbye. After 5 years and 10 stellar releases of edgy, forward-thinking house and techno, the Icee Hot gang is calling it quits. Not for lack of interest or anything like that…According to Icee Hot founder and DJ Shawn Reynaldo (who also happens to be the editor of a little rag called XLR8R Magazine) … “This may sound simple, and even a bit cliche, but we’re ending Icee Hot simply because the time felt right to do so. Five years is a long time to be throwing a party every month, especially when we’ve also been doing … Read more ›

It was inevitable…the Matrix that is. And the subsequent movement of glitchy, code-based art was also inevitable.

The art + tech mashup geniuses at Codame are teaming up with the folks at Public Works SF’s  Roll Up Gallery for an installation showcasing Bay Area artists that have been generating increasingly complex visual forms with tools that rely on open-source. They use programs such as Java [processes], C++, [OpenFrameworks, Cinder], GLSL, JavaScript and AS3. Yeah…mind blown, right? 
The ‘Art By Code” show will represent a sampling of an explosive field and draws on the latest in computer technology from such fields like fractals, algorithmic processes, software art, generative art, data visualization, 3-D software, and much more. MORE INFO

Everyone knows Seth Troxler is quite the character. The top DJ, producer is perpetually stirring up social media chaos, from naked promotional videos to whacked out interviews, bad-mouthing or actual meaningful critiques. Here we list the best Troxler moments — ones that basically left the Internet in pieces.

Catch Seth this Friday, Jan. 9 in celebration of SF local Dax Lee’s birthday celebration. Click HERE for tickets.

5. That time Seth got deep about the scene:
“Look, I’m generally really happy for everyone. I try to keep positive about all this craziness. But if you’re not critical of the culture you live in, and love, then you’re doing yourself and everyone around you a disservice. EDM plays host to a profound delusion about what electronic music and dance culture are. It’s ridiculous music, made by ridiculous, un-credible people.

In all honesty, I find it profoundly sad. We’re trying to move … Read more ›
“Wasted” solo exhibition by Gabriel Castellanos

Gabriel was born in 1980 and raised in the Bay Area. He has shown work throughout California over the last 9 years, this being his first solo exhibition. Not much for words, he uses art to describe his thoughts about being alive and human with a juxtaposition of bright colors, symbols of death, isolation, a bit of mayhem, fracturing, and secret love. To him, to sensationalize our existence is to undermine our true reality in a way that allows us to no longer fear being alive.
