The party’s at the stables. Join us after the run to grab a drink and some eats and let your hair down. You can even skip the run and just rock out for the party. The party will be from 9:30am to 2pm.
There’s plenty of entertainment to go around: live music and DJ, food, drinks, and spooktacular funtivities for the under-12 kiddos.
This years live music is going to be amazing, we’re excited to confirm the following acts will be at this years SF Mad Dash
DJ M3 aka Manny (Green Gorilla)
Raising the volume of the Bay Area’s nightlife since the early 90′s, M3 has proved himself to be an influential character in the development of the SF/SJ house music scene. Born and raised in San Jose, M3 began his music career in 1990 promoting some of the original Bay Area’s massives such as Get Down, Get Down, Get Down, The Gathering, and Deep Space. Initially influenced by music ranging from Rick James, Screaming Jay Hawkins, and Led Zepplin, M3 began his d.j. career with a smooth down-tempo sound. Since then, his sound has evolved to include a spectrum of thumpin’ house beats which he is distinctively known. His dj name, M3, initially stood for Marijuana Motivates the Mind, but has since transformed to Makes Me Move. M3′s funky fresh style will, without a doubt, have you moving by the end of the day.
The Low Rollers
Are a fuzzed out folk rock garage band from San Francisco that features…
Joel Murach (Paddlefoot, 86) on guitar/vocals,
Tom Murach (Tracorum, 86) on drums/vocals, AND
Colin Peden (Polar Optimist) on bass/vocals.
Donger (aka, Matt Dong) started his sonic journey in the early 90′s after being positively konked on the head by the Wicked full moon parties. From that point DJing became an essential part of a well-rounded career in art and design. Since then Donger has played eclectic sets pivoting around house and breaks at the usual established venues but his heart was in the thriving SF warehouse underground, one-offs and rogue parties where art, creativity and the unexpected reigned supreme. His legendary UDL warehouse parties added gleefully to SF culture hosting an extreme variety of shows with artists, bands, flamethrowers, motorcyclists and misfits —all soundtracked by Donger and a funky lineup of guest DJ’s. Donger rule number 1: facilitate the good times.
