Pretty stoked about Cut Copy, Benassi, Presets, Mehdi, and Elite Force.

The artists playing the actual parade I'm kinda whatever about except ATB which will be nice since I loved ATB in highschool.

There is also still allegedly going to be the bay area indie fest that weekend (though who knows if that will actually happen), and I'm going to see the dandys on Sat night too.... going to be a busy weekend. That's the week I get back from ATP NY & ACL, and have MBV and James that week too.

Im totally going to this.. last year was awesome.. but for people who have never been to it..don't let the lineup fool you.. a lot of the BIG names don't play the actual FREE parade, but rather "paid" shows during that week and/or the after party (which costs a lot of god damn paper). so for people traveling up here for a certain act and are thinking about getting to it for free make sure that they are playing the parade.

i think you mean "ignorance is bliss." but you wouldnt know that. i said nothing about them being gay. whats your problem with the gay community that you assume a naked man is gay?

and let me guess, you dont complain about anything.

also, i dont not go because of that, i just enjoy talking the shit. i dont go because its become pretty lame. the first year was pretty dope. the parade was awesome, the floats were well done, the end of the parade where they set everything up was a lot of fun. AND it was only $5 bucks. now its all about cool and money and thats it. i like the music, not the commercialism.

and before you quote me thinking you're all smart and shit, yes, everything written on the interwebz is true.

no one was snitching, we asked the cop if he was allowed to do that, and he basically said "no. if you're offended we'll arrest him." women, guys, gays, trans...whatever, the street isnt the place to be naked. and notice, we said "NO", we were "NOT" offended.

You're going to an electronic music festival in one of the most progressive and gay cities in the world. Yes not all the naked guys are gay but all I am saying is don't expect to see everyone fully clothed! Obviously you belong in one of the ritzy night clubs with a dress code and $10 drinks. And if you even thought to snitch on any of the naked people that makes you a snitch, bitch.

what is your problem with comprehension?

Is he allowed to do that? is not the same as, Can you arrest him if I was offended? which was not asked.

the only reason i would go to a club is to see a major DJ that doesnt really do undergrounds. im a t-shirt and jeans/cargo shorts kinda guy. i fucking hate dress codes. you shouldnt be so quick to judge, you're just gonna be wrong and look stupid.

SF doesn't really have laws regarding nudity in the streets. The laws are specifically for lewd or offensive behavior, not simply being nude. That is why the cop asked if you were offended by the behavior. If you had said yes, he probably would have been arrested, but most likely not charged.

So, yes, technically it is legal to be dancing around in the street naked during lovefest.

interesting. either way, im not really offended. i just think its gross. im sure i would have a different opinion if i was old, overweight and flabby, but im not(well, i am turning 30. damn.). but yeah, i didnt want him arrested, i was just a little surprised.

Yea. I was going to post this earlier but it came off sounding ...

Personally, I think SF has tamed down a lot with regards to public nudity and "indecency". Now you mostly just see nudity or the occasional wank. No more in-costume gang bangs on castro street during Halloween, nor daisy chained dudes in chaps at folsom. I tried to get my family to go to folsom street with me last year but they are too savvy for me, they found pictures on the internet and said NO. :)

Okay so... how much is it again to get into the after party? And what acts are playing during the parade again? Much thanks. I think I'll be watching the parade today, but if me and my friends decide not to go to the after party, what other shows would you guys recommend seeing?

EDIT: I think I know what I'm doing for the after party, but does anyone know if Shine is 18+? Their website is fucking garbage and the Lovefest site doesn't have the info as to that on the after party page.

I thought I got off at the wrong stop on Market & Taylor Saturday night on my way to the Dandy Warhols gig at the Warfield. Complete underage madness at that LoveFest. In the block I walked I got flashed and caught some nipplage. Normally that area at 9:30pm on a Saturday night would be vacant with the exception of some seriously seedy types and addicts. The ride on the 31 MUNI was pretty classic too, b/c it was packed with people leaving Hardly Strictly and they got the eye opening ride through the Tenderloin and then thrown on to Market with a bunch of E'd out kiddies wondering what to do with themselves. Looked like a recipe for disaster if you ask me. Saw a bunch of shady looking gangster poser kids that I'm sure were hopped up on something and just looking for a fight. I didn't see any of the DJs, so I'm sure that was a different scene. But the aftermath with all the kids running around was pretty stupid.
