sound4/8/2006: DJ HappyFt Spins @ ArtSFest’s Spectra Ball

Justin Katz (Epic Arts, Paradox Media, Rosin Coven) dropped me an e-mail last week asking me to throw down some HappyFt zaniness for ArtSFest’s Spectra Ball. If it wasn’t for Justin’s support (along with Epic Arts’ Jess Ivry and Tim Barsky), the world would probably never get to hear the meshing of styles and cultures that leak out of my brain’s ears. Looking over this line-up, I’m humbled to be among a throng of amazing performers for this last night of DJing before I head East.

My set is early and I think I’m still doing between act fills. That’s the best way to throw out my many genres and cartoon tangents. Who needs a big set to get the good times going?

Nowhere in the San Francisco Bay Area has there be so much collective energy, color, art and community on one night than will be at the 3rd Annual ArtSFest SPECTRA BALL ’06 at the Regency Center (Sutter @ Van Ness) in San Francisco on April 8, 2006 . We’re pleased to announce a truly stunning line-up of amazing performers, entertainers, and musicians to delight your mind, spark your senses and enthrall your spirit.

We’ve assembled an unforgettable evening with something for everyone. Nearly 40 performance acts (theater, circus, dance, musical, spoken word and more) and over 50 visual art installations will delight your mind, spark your senses and enthrall your spirit.

The SPECTRA BALL gala benefit is the major fundraiser for ArtSFest 2006. Proceeds from the event will help us run a wide range of service programs that help cultivate the next generation of the arts in the San Francisco Bay Area:

* from ArtSFest 2006, our annual Celebration of the Arts that draws national attention to the Bay Area’s outstanding and “emerging” talent
* to ArtSFest TX, a program that provides underprivileged kids with free tickets to some of the best local art and performances.

We invite you to have the creative ball of your life and support our important mission in the process. Buy your tickets today and help us make art a more celebrated part of all of our lives!
