Popscene moves to new venue

The event name says it all.

Tonight, Aaron Axelsen’s long-running local club night Popscene is throwing a “Farewell to 330 Ritch” Dance Party to bid a fond adieu to the location that’s housed their events for 12 incredible years.

And we do mean incredible — now-famous artists such as Muse, Phoenix, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, even Amy Winehouse (in one of her strangest concerts, ever) got their SF start there. And Axelsen has more treats in store for January — Davey Havok’s side project Blaqk Audio plays Popscene on the 6th and UK upstarts The Wombats on the 13th.

Just don’t head down to 330 Ritch to see them.

Popscene has relocated to The City’s Rickshaw Stop, at 155 Fell St.

Why?

“We just felt like it was time for a new change of scenery,” explains Axelsen, also a featured Popscene DJ. “And we have a great relationship already in place with the Rickshaw, since we’ve thrown many Popscene special events there over the years. So it’s the same Popscene formula — a hub for new and emerging bands, with tickets in the $8 to $12 price range. Along with throwing our patented Indie-Britpop-electro-New Wave-’60s-soul-post punk Dance Parties, with our resident DJs of Omar, Nako, Miles The DJ and myself.”
