Tell us, how did it all start for you two? Around 8 or 9 years ago we had lots of spare time in our lifes. During that phase we decided to focus on the thing we like the most: music! We founded Monkey Safari, also our first record label What! What! and opened the club… View Article

In the colorful and vast collective of up and coming designers, these L.A based brands have managed to establish a strong following at music festivals globally while still building their clout in the fashion world.
I was so excited to see Guns N Roses. A band that embodied the pain and angst and rebellion I felt as a child and teenager from a broken home left to fend for myself in a cruel, lonely world. The anticipation followed me through the day.
The BPM Festival is all about house music and it’s sub-genres. Now replacing Miami’s Winter Music Conference as the “it” festival, BPM is the hot spot to enjoy dance music, network with industry professionals, and get that fun in the sun on your beach vacation. BPM is all about having very selective day and night parties showcasing artists from both mainstream and underground record labels over the course of a 10-day event.
Remember back when raves used to be in warehouses in the middle of industrial areas? Now think to the present to the shiny, polished, well-staffed commercial spaces that are being used for “raves” now…
By Brittany Tilleman Why do I love this iconic band? Is it their music? Well, that was the initial reason I was drawn to the band. No doubt they have released some cult classic anthems like She Don’t Use Jelly and Do You Realize?, as well as seriously amazing albums like The Soft Bulletin and Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots.
The Lisbona Sisters infiltrated the scene with their spandex-infused spunk and a connoisseur’s taste for elevated electronic beats. Over the last few years they have grown into a “house-hold” name, DJing across the country, opening for top-tier artists like Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones, playing some of the world’s best festivals like Coachella and BPM…
Gazing at the Joshua Trees through the dusty passenger window, a serene air came over me. The monkey chatter of my exhausted analytical mind slowed down to a honey-like flow. Watching the desert shapes flood past the window, the mascara of toxic smog & city grime masking my third eye peeled away.
It is damn cold outside, well for us San Franciscans. With Indian summer long behind us, and December now here, we are cuddling up in anticipation of El Nino, and preparing for a long winter. Granted, it’s not like we are on the east coast or anything, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get shivers in our bones. Here is a quick list of ways to warm up, and wash away those blustering blues.
With Housepitality’s 5 year anniversary on the horizon, we thought it would be appropriate to sit down with one of its founders, the don of humpday house music parties, Miguel Solari.
We’ve been hearing quite a bit coming from “the-land-down-under” in the world of house music, and we would be lying if we said we weren’t the least bit pleased. If you haven’t heard Yolanda Be Cool’s newest single ‘Soul Makossa’…
You’ve either seen Bubbles at a party or walking down the street. One of San Francisco’s most infamous party personas recently just released an entire show’s worth of artwork. We fell in love with it, so we decided to sit down and have a one-on-one chat about San Francisco, fashion, and art. CV: Bubbles, you… View Article
Burning Man is just around the corner and we have your survival guide. Now, I know they give you a good list of things you need for your week of radical self-reliance, but these are the things that are necessary some old-fashioned-fun time with friends.
TuTu Tuesday is always a fun time. You have to monitor yourself though, or you can end up cursing yourself hunched over on hump day wondering why you partied so much in the middle (or rather beginning) of the week. Oh yeah, cuz it’s fun.
In a sea of photographers it can be a challenge trying to stand out. Los Angeles based, Mallory Morrison has been honing her skills in the art of underwater photography for the past several years. .
Produced by Culture Vulture’s Lisbona Sisters and featuring them, along with CV resident JOill and a number of other friends, Yolanda Be Cool’s video for their top charting track Soul Mokossa (Money) comes out today
The Little House represents the comfort, communication and interactivity that we have within ourselves and our surroundings.
The Disbehave video is the Best Thing We Have Seen All Week
Culture Vulture sat down to interview Merkley??? and Micah Byrnes, both notorious for their wild shenanigans in the San Francisco music scene, and both will be hosting the Disbehave party tonight at Mighty…
So I’ve been to Coachella. 11 of them I think. It’s really tough to keep track, and the years/lineups really start to overlap. “Wait a minute, did I see Arcade fire on the side stage? Okay that must’ve been 2005… Wait was that the year that they had the giant wooden crane? No, that was 2009, or was it ’10? Shit I don’t know.”
After attending Coachella 11 years strong, I have finally made a checklist of necessary items for survival.
Gina Turner, notable female house music DJ and wife to Laidback Luke, is coming to San Francisco this week to perform at Culture Vulture’s Future Factory party at Temple Nightclub along an all-female DJ lineup including local favorite Laura Lisbona. A well-known DJ with an in-depth history in dance music both on-air and in the clubs, Gina is also a new mother and professional yogi.
A music festival for industry insiders along a warm sandy beach? Who wouldn’t want to go. Year after year, we’ve been trudging out to Miami from the West Coast, seeking a bit of metropolitan paradise during the Winter Music Conference. But in recent years the scene, music included, fell flat. Even the once aerated crusty cubano tasted stale and unpalatable.
The creme de la creme of San Francisco nightlife turned out for a fun night of champagne and fire ball cocktails and cirque entertainment. Will just upload the pics, because a picture tells a thousand words, and after that party, we are just tired of talking. What a fun night!
