It’s another Geomagnetic.tv party, this time at the Gingerbread House — which is open for business again, apparently having gotten its permits in order.  San Francisco’s “War on Fun” has even gotten coverage in Reason magazine; as Lois Beckett asks in SF Weekly, is it enforcement or harrassment?

Twenty-four years. Wow.

Happy Virtual Anniversary!

Notes from underground: Kinetic 4 at the Pacific Science Center

Okay, it might be stretching it a little to call it “underground” … still, Infinite Connections’ parties at the Pacific Science Center are always great fun.  Promoters Amanita and Osiris Indriya are also the guys behind Hotwired, Seattle’s psytrance monthly, and know how to create a great vibe.  The setting is amazing … Insect Trance, Dinosaur Downtempo, D&B in the Playground.  What’s not to like?

It’s such a different experience going out in Seattle than it is in San Francisco.  In SF, we usually cab; here, it’s driving — meaning hassles with parking, being careful not to drink too much, etc. etc.  In SF, we have bunches of friends who are into the darkwave and psytrance scene, so often are meeting up with people … here, well, let’s just say our friends tend to have different interests and schedules, so we’re usually on our own.   We’ve been semi-regulars at some of the SF clubs and parties for years and so always see a lot of familiar faces; in Seattle, we’re not really part of the scene, so it’s much more the two of us hanging out.  It’s all good, just in a very different way.
