Just saw Whitest Boy Alive a Slim's in SF last night, and i exceeded all of my expectations! They borrowed Rogue Wave's synhesizer, which is the original they used for the first album., and it was amazing. The club was at capacity , and the whole place was a dance floor. They finished the night with an encore and a cover of Robyn S' "You've got to show me love" and the place went wild! I highly recommend seeing them if you have seen Deadmau5 or Fever Ray then check out the Gobi. I went over to Vessel to see Erol Alkan, and i was surprised that for his first show in SF that it wasn't packed and people were not hanging from the rafters, but it was a good blend of disco and other treats. He still killed it and I am glad i handled one of my few conflicts. Anyone else go to either?

Haven't seen Whitest Boy or Deadmau5. I'm kinda torn. Thats my biggest conflict tomorrow.

I can't decide between second half of Jay-Z or TWBA. Fuck. It's gonna be a gametime decision.

not seeing jay-z at all. after vampire weekend, i'm running to see 5 minutes of benny benassi, then catching fever ray, but i'm even leaving that early (about 11:40) to get a good place for the whitest boy alive.

definitely one of my top three artists on saturday.

So who saw this? With Jay-Z, PiL, Fever Ray and deadmau5 all playing at the same time, I'm curious how crowded their tent was?

It was filled all the way to the back. I saw about 5 songs of Jay Z before closing out the night with TWBA. Kind of wish I had chosen Jay Z in retrospect, but Whitest Boy put on a great show.

I'm glad I went to Fever Ray. Not even that big a fan of their music, but that show was amazing. I did catch a song of TWBA and I liked it a lot. Too much conflict.

I unfortunately missed this, but I wasn't missing Jay-Z for anything.

Few songs of Jay-Z, couple Fever Ray (which was amazing) and all of Whitest Boy. Sounds like I wasn't the only one doing the same thing. Great way to close Friday.

30 minutes of the fiver, then over to Whitest Boy alive and caught their full set. That Friday night put the conflict in conflict-chella.
