Skinny Puppy

Fri., Dec. 19, 7:30 p.m.
415-673-5716
Skinny Puppy
It must be a vindicating time for aging Skinny Puppy fans. Enthusiasts of the long-running Canadian outfit and their industrial rock ilk, such as Ministry and KMFDM, have remained a devout contingent, even when trebly, gated-snare kick tones fell out of step with post-millennial tastes. No longer a comically dated sound, new bands such as Youth Code from Los Angeles, which opens for Skinny Puppy on Friday at the Regency Ballroom (1290 Sutter St., San Francisco), are stirring a love of industrial rock in the hearts of young listeners. Perhaps it’s not surprising. The cyberpunk aesthetic, a cult literary genre in the 1980s that dealt in technocratic future dystopias and had significant bearing on industrial music and culture, feels more relevant than ever, as power consolidates into the hands of fewer and fewer technology companies and the chasm between the haves and have-nots widens. Industrial rock, with its rhythmic use of automated machinery to mimic the oppressive apparatuses of totalitarian regimes, resonates intensely. $40

The Booty Bassment

Third Saturday of every month, 10 p.m.
415-550-6994
The Booty Bassment
If hours of dancing to mid-tempo bass-heavy hip-hop sounds as supremely satisfying to you as scoring a parking spot in downtown Oakland during First Fridays, then clear your schedule for the monthly Booty Bassment at The Knockout (3223 Mission St., San Francisco). True to its name, this second-Saturday party, featuring DJs Dimitri Dickinson and Ryan Poulsen, mixes classic and new hits from the likes of Too $hort and 2 Chainz, all for the goal of inducing mass rump-shaking. But unlike other parties, Booty Bassment manages to avoid being a total gropefest, so you can twerk, yike, and dip with abandon. Best of all, this gluteus festivity only costs $5, which is cheaper than Hipline, Zumba, or other dance workouts. Prepare your backside. $5
