Alt-Disco (All Vinyl) with DJ K.L. Kemp at Fallout Lounge tonight

Dancin’ machine

DJ K. L. Kemp recently started Alt-Disco, a night at the Fallout Lounge where he spins what he calls “no bullshit old-school underground gay disco … just like they used to play at the Trocadero Transfer back in the day in San Francisco.” Someone who posts “Georgio Moroder for President” as his political view on Facebook and invites the gays to party it up like it’s 1979 sounds like a true disco devotee.

Oh, and if you didn’t catch it, he spins vinyl only. Sah-weet!

Tonight is also the DJ’s birthday, so in addition to his “electronic sleaze” and “hi-nrg funk,” he says there will also be cake. Just try not to drop crumbs while doing The Hustle.

DEETS: Fallout Lounge, 835 Exposition Ave. at 9 p.m.

Possibly the best pitch to get me to an event

As part of the job, I get invites to some fresh events around town. I appreciate every one, but I’m also a homebody and at the end of the work day, I typically drive my 20 miles home and plant myself there for the night. Still, every so often, something will get me off my ass. I received this package Thursday which at first I thought might be a bomb but upon opening discovered was pretty much full of awesome.

DJ K. L. Kemp recently started Alt-Disco, a night at the Fallout Lounge where he spins what he calls “no bullshit old-school underground gay disco … just like they used to play at the Trocadero Transfer back in the day in San Francisco.” He said this in a handwritten (HANDWRITTEN!!) letter enclosed in the package that was also one of the most earnest and genuine pitches to reach a diverse audience. I mean, someone who posts “Georgio Moroder for President” as his political view on Facebook and invites my friends and me to party it up like it’s 1979 sounds like a true disco devotee. Oh, and he’s spinning vinyl.

Plus, he sent me a sweet poster and Donna Summer’s A Love Trilogy album. Probably the best part of it all was the package labeled as “time-sensitive disco.”

Right on.

The next Alt-Disco party happens July 13 at Fallout Lounge, 835 Exposition Ave. at 9 p.m. And seriously, they have some of the best cocktails in town. See you there.
