San Francisco has a diverse disco scene that often crosses over but not often enough! 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/New York/Chicago disco nightlife!

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! We will start with fire and end with fire!

Taking inspiration from the classic Dinosaur L. song, "Go BANG!": http://soundcloud.com/synthetigers/dinosaur-l-go-bang-the
"I wanna see all my friends at once
I'll do anything to get a chance to
Goooo BANG!"


*Special Guest :: LESTER TEMPLE http://www.facebook.com/lester.temple.5
Lester says "My career of choice was and is radio. I've been a radio DJ, announcer, producer, writer and manager, and have been with CBS San Francisco for the last 20 years. In 1976, I took a break from radio and dived in to the San Francisco disco scene. Starting at Oil Can Harry's, where I was a resident with John Hedges, the owners moved up the street and opened up the fabulous Music Hall. With state of the art lighting and sound designed by Bruce Trondson, I was the resident DJ there for about a year. During that time, we presented many disco artists live, including a fabulous party starring Sylvester. It was during that residency I was awarded the Best San Francisco DJ award from Billboard Magazine. DJs then started to invite other DJs to do guest nights in their clubs. I played at Trocadero Transfer, Dreamland, The End Up, and settled into regular shifts and guest nights at The I-Beam in San Francisco's Haight/Ashbury. That was truly a magical time and club. It was huge, with a large dance floor, and a separate room with pool and gaming. Sound and lighting was designed by Randy Schiller, who still has an active sound company in San Francisco. Steve Fabus, Tim Rivers, and Michael Garrett were the residents, and I was excited every time I was asked to play there. In contrast to Trocadero, which leaned toward a spacey high energy sound, the I-Beam had a more soulful direction, much like Paradise Garage. On Wednesday nights, Brian Raffi and Alan Robinson would play dance rock. Many bands, such as Duran Duran, The Cure, and Siouxie and the Banshees made their live U.S. debut at the I-Beam and the night became a huge success. And the disco nights and the legendary Sunday afternoon tea dances continued to thrive. Many attempts were made to get an after hours license at the I-Beam, but being smack dab in the middle a residential neighborhood in the Haight, the neighbors fought it all the way. But during 9PM-2AM seven nights a week, and on Sunday afternoons, the I-Beam was a destination for dancers and music lovers from all over the world. After the club was eventually closed after many successful years, the building was torn down and now condominiums exist at the legendary location." He blew us all away when he played his first set in 15 years at a recent Go BANG!, and was the first guest to return so quickly to our Go BANG! decks, because he is THAT GREAT! Check out his second time that he BANG!ed us! https://soundcloud.com/go-bang/lester-temple-at-go-bang-march

*Special Guest :: KENNETH L. KEMP http://www.facebook.com/kenneth33rpm | http://soundcloud.com/kenneth33rpm
Kenneth grew up in Dallas, TX, with white-hot enthusiasm and grabby hands for anything music and film-related he could find from a very early age. Later, as a teenager, among other pursuits, he began to DJ, play in bands, and write and produce recordings. After years of cutting his teeth musically in Texas, he made the leap to the Bay and has continued here with the same fascination and celebration of anything with a good beat (disco, soul, funk, punk, glam, new wave, etc). Kenneth is thrilled to be back for a second BANG! and is deeply honored to have been asked to participate in this tribute to a legendary place and time in San Francisco dance music history.
