Put the needle on the racket tonight. OMG, Jonathon Keats has done it again! He's an artist known for improving the metric system, selling parts of his brain and even fifth dimension real estate. (Full disclosure: We proudly have a title for a place in North Beach that we bought from the artist for under twelve bucks. He also did a broom art installation at our apartment that so rocks our Casbah.) Tonight, he gives local Fisters a chance to be geospacial DJs. We're not sure what that means, but it looks like hundreds of vinyl records will be spinning simultaneously tonight starting at 9:56 p.m. Potential tunes may come from the Beatles, Ella Fitzgerald, Madonnna and Mozart, and vinyl records will be given out on random street corners for the next week. How we wish we still had a record player.
The best place to hear the mish mash may be at Cafe du Nord, where singer/songwriter bernadette will headline the turntables. Doors are at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., $10. 21 and over only. 2170 Market Street, SF. Phone: 415-861-5016
