My friend, photographer and graphic designer Zac made us our awesome logo and with it’s completion we knew it was time to have a party. So, Friday night, Pedro and I (with a little help from our awesome friends) hosted our launch party for Night Fog Reader at El Rio. 

Pamela played first and they raged hard. The lady duo—Ashley Thomas and Courtney Gray—started with double guitars and Will Ivy on the drums. Later on, Courtney beat the drums while Ashley fronted. They called up Jasper of the Myonics, who played a few songs with Pamela, including a Myonics song! 

Ryan Grubbs of the Ganglians DJed between the two acts. The flavor of the set ranged between Raga disco beats by Charanjit Singh and psych cult classics like The Twinkeyz’s “Aliens In Our Midst.”

If you’ve ever seen Boyz IV Men live, then you know they get the party and the dance pit started. Needless to say, the Boyz did not disappoint. It got really sweaty and crowded as people shoved into each other. I tried to protect the projector while also taking photos. I’m pretty proud of my feeble attempt to capture a picture of the Night Fog Reader logo randomly projected onto Trevor’s crotch. After the live sets, FuZZz DJs Snaps n’ Claps took over for the rest of the evening.

A special thanks goes out to the ladies of FuZZz who made this all possible.

Also, thanks to our readers and friends for liking us and coming out to the show! It was fucking full.

We have a logo now, so we’re celebrating with a launch party.
Night Fog Reader went public in March. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to post mixes from some of our favorite local musicians (Dominant Legs, Nick Waterhouse, Melted Toys, and Damon of Mi Ami/Jonas Reinhardt), we’ve written up some awesome local shows, posted exclusive tracks, and some local gossip/stories. The response has been surprising, and we feel super grateful! But all this time had gone by and we’ve never had a logo. Well, that’s changed (designer credit: Zachary Maricondia) and now we want to celebrate with an official launch!
We’ve asked a few of our friends to help us out. Performing live will be…
BOYZ IV MEN
The garage-key electro trio that blasts dance jams using Casio/Korg keyboards, drums and samplers – nope, no laptops in this rig. They just recorded some new material with Phil Manley (Trans AM/The Fucking Champs/Jonas Reinhardt), and are gearing up for some big things this year. Check out their latest track.
and..
PAMELA
It’ll be Pamela’s third show ever! Night Fog Reader first caught wind of Pamela when she performed with Will Ivy and California Sunshine at the Knockout a few weeks back. She’s out in New York right now and playing at Bruar  Falls this Friday (5/24). Don’t worry, we know her flight will be back for this show. She’s on first, so get there early!

The ladies of FuZZz know things. Things like …  how to throw a really fun party. Heidi Petty (Yours Truly/CatTrash) and Kelly Nyland (The Lambs) aka Snaps and Claps brainstormed the “sexual flexible video dance party” over a year ago in hopes of bringing a breath of fresh air to the Mission’s dance scene.  A roster of genre-theme parties followed: Yacht-Rock, Stevie Nicks/Kate Bush, My Boo (R&B), and Sweat Shop (Post Disco). I began to feel like “someone finally got it!” A dance party to get people silly and frisky. Beware: This mix may take you to a state where you may not have control over some parts of your body. Catch the troublemakers at the next FuZZz on April 1st, and every first Friday at El Rio. $5 or free before 10:30. Plus an outdoor patio!download here
