Latenite Connexions 01

A Release Series Benefitting SF Bay Area Queer Nightlife Fund

Episode 1: Experimental Housewife Live at Club Six March 30th, 2019

Release Date: May 22 @ 12:00am PT

Direct To Earth and Experimental Housewife partner up to bring you previously unreleased recordings of killer sets from Direct To Earth events and our friends’ events in San Francisco.

We aim to re-engage unique late-night connections and celebrate the music that makes those connections possible.

Our fundraiser for SF Queer Nightlife will consist of 10 recordings released over the next 10 weeks. Each mix will be packaged with a reflection from the DJ about what they remember from that night, what they experienced, and with whom they connected.

We encourage you to contribute in two ways: donate to the fund and share your own memories of the night.

On Launching our Second Round of Grants

It feels like the passage of time has changed during this era of shelter in place. As we write this, it’s been almost eight weeks since the steering committee of the SF Bay Area Queer Nightlife Fund began to organize. But as each day at home flows into the next, it’s easy to lose track of time. And while most of us are hunkering down at home, the clock keeps ticking. We all still need to buy food and eat, pay rent, and pay bills. Nightlife is still on hiatus, so queer nightlife workers are still unable to earn their regular income even though their bills continue to come due.
