My most enjoyable assignments are the Bearracuda Parties, and January’s Bearracuda at Rick Shaw Stop in Hayes Valley was exceptionally fun with the dynamic dj duo Robert Jeffrey and Stanley Frank on the sounds.
The two maestros played an energetic set full of rare, new, and slightly more funky and soulful than most house music clubs I’ve attended. They clown around on stage, and occasionally stop the music for a beat or two, and shout funny little exclamations like “Dance Godammit!”, and “Ain’t that rite?!”.
The music was so good almost every person in the club was on the dance floor.
There were so many dancing bears, for a moment I thought I was at a Russian Circus convention
Look! Celebrity sighting. I had no idea how hung and virile Holy McGrail is.
I believe this adorable creature is a current or former leather title holder? I was not able to get his info let me know if you know?
More celebrities! Dj’s Carnitas (left, from Hard French), and Mat dos Santos (right, from Rocket Collective).

Wow, Robert Jeffrey even provides lip service to the club patrons!
The last picture in this post is of a rickshaw taxi. This was the last Bearracuda event at this venue.
They’re having an underwear party tonight at Beatbox, btw. Here’s their website for more info and up coming events: Bearracuda SF
