Simian Mobile Disco

When: Fri., Nov. 27, 9 p.m. 2009

Render your fatty Thanksgiving deposits inside the sweltering pit at a Simian Mobile Disco party on Friday, Nov. 27, at Mezzanine (444 Jessie St., San Francisco). The seasonal slowdown around the holidays generally offers a much-needed break for card-carrying members of the too-much-fun club, but die-hards can persevere through the slump with some of the best hipster electro shock around. UK duo James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Peaches and Klaxons) and Jas Shaw started the noisy, rocky, blipped-out side project in 2005, and released hit Attack Decay Sustain in 2007. Sophomore heater Temporary Pleasure doubled down on the beats in May with help from Gossip’s Beth Ditto, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, and Yeasayer. Esoteric disco, Germanic minimalism, and trashy funk will unite some and alienate the rest, guaranteed. With JDH & Dave P, and the Tenderlions. Blogworthy! 9 p.m., $22.50.
