You know, like this from last year.

“Silent Frisco” is Silent Disco – Grab Your Headphones and Dance – Even the NoPA NIMBYs Approve!

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

This was the scene over the weekend in the Golden Gate Park Panhandle.

See? Just look at those kids go!

But you couldn’t hear this party, cause people were dancing whilst listening to a DJ’s short-range broadcast.

It’s Silent Frisco, baby!

Now, do you remember the five-star rated Panhandle Bandshell from a half-decade ago? It was placed in the same basic place in the park until it got chased away by real estate interests and the horrible white, wizened, wealthy NIMBYs what still infest the Upper Haight / North of Panhandle areas.

Will area NIMBY’s now start complaining about Silent Frisco?

I don’t know, maybe they never even noticed.

Bon Courage, Silent Frisco!

“Silent Frisco makes your “scene” not heard, preserving the right for artists express themselves in public settings where “noise” has previously made such activities impractical or illegal. Through the use of custom “silent” wireless headphone technology, Silent Frisco produces unique music experiences, where live artists rock the house without waking the neighbors!

WE OWN TWO THOUSAND 2-CHANNEL, FESTIVAL-OPTIMIZED WIRELESS HEADPHONES. Custom-designed and built from scratch, Silent Frisco headsets operate TWO simultaneous independent radio channel feeds, while providing the best in audio clarity, volume, and comfort.

Developed in the 1980s, ‘Silent Disco’ concept made it’s U.S. debut at the 2005 Bonnaroo Festival, where resident Dj and Silent Frisco founder Robbie “MoPo” Kowal (pictured) introduced the user-friendly technology to ecstatic audiences seeking additional late night programming. Since then, Kowal, and Silent Frisco team have been pushing this unique concept at dozens of major U.S. music and arts festivals.”

Disposable Film Fest NightLife

Discover the latest and greatest gadgets, apps and hacks you should have in your toolkit from the experts at PhotoJoJo, Boom Grip and Veetle, and then practice your storytelling at the flipbook animation booth and interviewing workshop.

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee Loses Famous LovEvolution Event (aka The Love Parade) to Oakland for 2011

Friday, July 1st, 2011

This year’s lovEvolution Dance Music Festival will be in Oakland instead of San Francisco?

Apparently.

See?

(Are there street parties still around in the 415 these days?)

Compared to all the other counties out there in America, San Francisco is the highest cost and highest hassle location to do any kind of event. Why is that?

Instead of this:

We’re going to have this – sad hipsters all dressed up with no place to go excepting the Oakland Coliseum:

Good-Bye Love Parade. Come back someday if you can.

Ah, memories. (I wonder if all the hyperlinks still work…) Anyway, enjoy 2009:

LovEvolution 2009 (or LoveFest or the Love Parade, call it what you will, gallery here) went down in Civic Center yesterday- what a huge turnout it had.

Here are the best photos uploaded to Flickr.

LovEvolution 2009 (or LoveFest or the Love Parade, call it what you will) is still going strong down in Civic Center today – what a huge turnout it has – check the best photos from Flickr and some more photos posted on SFist. Now this year everybody’s paying $10 to get in, so that helps to pay for San Francisco’s excessive fees for doing anything, anytime, anywhere. Anyway, it’s fuzzy cowboy hats as far as the eye can see. And MUNI is FUBAR’ed beyond all recognition. Oh well.

Remember, this type of gathering is Why They Hate Us. Not Fleet Week or nothing, it’s this kind of stuff that They hate. Oh well. Here’s a slide show of photos to ponder. And here’s the post-first, edit-later (Go Go Gorgeous is a person, really? “Kobayash,” is a last name, really?) San Francisco Chronicle’s take, along with 23 photos. And here’s David Yu’s shots.

Pretty much.

SF LovEvolution Fast Facts

WHAT: San Francisco LovEvolution : A Dance Music Parade & FestivalLove Week page for more info.San Francisco LovEvolution Event Changes this year : on the need for a $10 entrance fee to the festival site at Civic Center Plaza

WHEN: Love Week starts Wednesday, September 30th with official and affiliated parties each night all week and through the weekend.
The main LovEvolution event is Saturday, October 3rd from 12noon – 8:00pm.

WHO: SF LovEvolution is all ages & all friendly peoples.

WHAT’S MORE: A parade starts from 2nd & Market St. in downtown San Francisco with ~25 floats heading West down Market St.  The parade is free and all ages.

THEN WHAT: The floats arrive at Civic Center plaza where they park to becomes 25 stages on a transformed festival grounds with food, beverage, a new live electronic and performance stage, and outstanding revelry.  There is a $10 entrance fee to the festival grounds, children under 12 with their parents are Free.  All ages welcome.  No outside alcohol.

WHY: The entrance fee was necessary for the survival of the event due to significantly higher city related fees.  Please read the whole story below!

THERE’S MORE (!): After the festival ends at 8:00pm a number of after parties kick off all over the city, including the Official After Party produced by Skills & Spundae on site at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.  After parties have their own admission and age policies.  See the

LOVE: YES

As anyone who attended last years event knows, SF LovEvolution is now the largest electronic music event in America. Thanks to all those who have faithfully supported us and to the many new Lovers who attended last year. Because of the growth of LovEvolution, however, and to preserve our ability to parade down Market Street and party right in front of San Francisco City Hall, we’ve had to institute a few changes to this years event.

First, because of escalating city fees and the events growth last year, LovEvolution 2009 will require a large increase in all levels of traffic, police, security and medical personnel. This translates into a very large increase in how much money it costs to pull off this special event. As this is a non-profit event with minimal corporate sponsorship, we will be charging a $10 admission to LovEvolution this year in order to pay for the increased staff and other event expenses. We’ve always asked for a $10 donation but since most people do not give, donations are not sufficient to fund and improve the event. In order to be able to continue the event, we received special permission from the city for a $10 admission plan. This is as close to free as we could make it and at $10 for 250 world class DJs, LovEvolution is still the best bargain for an event of this scale in America. **We pay 100% of the costs back to the city, so without this change, we could not have the event. Please note kids under 12 with their parents are FREE. You can also get in free by volunteering. Of course – the parade is FREE to all and the entire event from 12noon- 8:00pm is still ALL AGES.** (After parties will vary by event).

Second, there will be no glass or outside alcohol allowed in the event. This has always been a condition of our permits, but when the event was smaller we never had to enforce. But the site was littered with broken glass last year that presented a safety hazard, so we now have to enforce this policy. This is for all our safety and is no different than at any concert or gated event, so please don’t bring alcohol or glass, it will be confiscated or you’ll be turned away at the gates.

On the bright side, the $10 admission will allow us to continue having this amazing event as well as to add some special production elements in Civic Center plaza. This year we are premiering the LovEvolution Live stage in front of city hall featuring an all out performance by The Mutaytor, and much more tba. The $10 admission will also allow us to reduce prices at our bars since we are now not as dependent upon alcohol sales to pay for the event. We’ll also be eventually eliminating entry fees fees for the floats so producers can make their floats even better. And YES – there will be ins and out allowed. And YES, kids under 12 with their parents are FREE.

Last but not least, the $10 admission will allow us to increase the amount of our non-profit contributions to other worthy organizations. Non-profits that received funds last year and/or we expect to donate to this year include:

Friends of the Main Library
Next Aid
Aids Housing Alliance
The Center for Sex and Culture
Beat University Scholarship Fund
Black Rock Arts Foundation
Bay Area Young Positives
Burners Without Borders
San Francisco Suicide Prevention/HIV AIDS Nightline
Alpha Phi Omega Fraternity
Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity

Thanks for your support and looking forwarding to a fabulous LovEvolution 2009!!

Back to help by serving as Brand Ambassadair at the Grand Opening Weekend of our new House of Air Trampoline Park.

Olympic icon Jonny Moseley partners with House of Air, will host Opening Weekend festivities as ‘Brand Ambassadair’

SAN FRANCISCO (September 16, 2010) – On the day after House of Air
opened its doors to the public, owners Paul McGeehan and Dave
Schaeffer
were thrilled to announce a new partnership with Olympic
Gold-Medalist Jonny Moseley.  The former “Sportsman of the Year” will
serve as an ‘Ambassadair’ for the ground-breaking trampoline park,
helping to spread the word about the venue’s ability to make “Flyers”
out of all of us.

“When I first heard about House of Air, I knew it was something that I
wanted to be a part of,” said Moseley.  “What I like most about it is
the fact that it offers something for everyone.  Whether you’re a
highly-skilled athlete looking to hone your skills, or an adult or
child looking to experience the joy of flying, you’re guaranteed to
have a great time.”

Moseley also stated that he will be hosting House of Air’s grand
opening celebration, which will begin on Friday, September 17 and
continue throughout the weekend.  The celebration will include live
DJs, exciting raffle giveaways, and demonstrations from expert
jumpers.  “We’re going to have a lot of fun this weekend,” added
Moseley, who will be doing interviews with the media throughout the
weekend.  “I’ll be judging a “dinner roll” competition on Friday
evening.  The winner will receive a pair of K2 HardSide skis, so
hopefully lots of people will be eager to show off their moves.”

The weekend’s festivities will kick off on Friday at 1:00pm with a
ribbon cutting ceremony, and will last all evening, before resuming
again on Saturday morning.  Those who would like to purchase tickets
to jump during these or any other times can do so by visiting

Will you attend any of the Grand Opening days? Remember it’s not really at the 900 block of Mason Street atop Nob Hill and it’s not at Fort Mason, neither. It’s in the Presidio on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge 

See you there!

Chrissy Field.

McGeehan and Schaeffer are also excited to announce that, beginning on Friday, September 17 and continuing all weekend, the venue will be staging a Grand Opening Celebration.  The event will feature demonstrations from experienced flyers, a live DJ, food and drinks,
