The Pirates vs The Klowns

The Pirates vs The Klowns is a special leap day party taking place this Friday, February 29th at 1015 Folsom in San Francisco, featuring The Mutaytor, Uberzone vs. The Bassbin Twins, Bootie, Kromestar, Cirque Berzerk and The Fringe.

On February 29, a diverse range of musical and visual artists band together for a party so crazy that it could only happen every four years; “Pirates vs Klowns” the Leap Day Leap. Featuring a costumed crowd enjoying 6 hours of live music, performance art, circus and cabaret performance, and even some huge DJ sets. The centerpiece of this feast for the senses will be the first SF appearance of 2008 by the indescribable 43-piece music/performance-art/dance ensemble, The Mutaytor. Other highlights include a debut duo set by breakbeat stars Uberzone & Bassbin Twins and a visit from UK dubstep wiz Kromestar. Adrian & the Mysterious D. and Big Dolla will host the “Bootie Pirate Mashup Room” in the front, while Antennae, Ripple & Boggle host “Full Melt” dubstep and acid crunk upstairs. Motion Potion, Victor Vega, Absurge, and Rocket of the Fringe hold down the eclectic funk, breaks, electro and live art downstairs. LA’s legendary Cirque Berzerk will be on-hand to show off their high-flying aerials in the main room.
