A night to remember: A benefit show (Picture heavy)

I am impressed with the power of love and understanding. This particular event gave me an opportunity to witness it. (Although to look back on it now seems morbid) A little over a month ago my friend DJ was attacked and received a lot of injuries. His close friends got a benefit show together for him at the Floristree. It was a great experience to see people opening their wallets to someone they really cherish as a person. And they raised quite a bit of funds.

This is Sam. He is in a band called Future Islands. He never has a "normal" picture. 

Kendall doing her thing. 

I decided to lend a hand at the door. Kendall was the best!

Oh Risa and Amelia, you guys are the best for chit chat at shows!

Shannon is my friend from way back. That is why I can take weird pictures of her. 

Me, Becca and John (old roommates). I miss them a bit although they only moved one floor down.

I don't know this guy but he was wearing Dj's band's tee. Teenage Souls dude!

Jaynell and Becca, the happiest people, EVER. lol

Denny and William look like they are about to engage in battle. Did I mention how sweaty this place can get? 

And this is why: ALL THE PEOPLE! 

Hey Chris aka crazy eyes 

Oh no Craig!

 We danced....

Really hard.

EDIT: No one fucked with the cats. They have been used to shows for over 3 years.

Life is beautiful, let's share a little. Joy D.

Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
