Just when you think you've seen the last of the Thump crew, they go ahead and blow your mind again. This Friday will be a night to remember, as Israeli trance titans Astral Projection bring their euphoric style to the underground trance label's six-year anniversary. Avi and Lior of AP haven't played in SF in over two years, having been touring extensively in Europe and Middle East, and working on new mix productions in their signature psy-trance and psy-chill styles. Also in attendance is Freq Nasty, who's been at the forefront of the dirty breaks and bass scene for many years and played the world over, including a headline gig at Miami's Ultra7 in Miami on the Future Sound of Breaks stage.

Dan the Automator is probably one of the busiest producers in the industry, even moreso if you consider his own solo career. He has created projects like Handsome Boy Modeling School, worked with names like Kool Keith and Kid Koala, to name a few, and if any of these aren't ringing a bell Im sure you heard of The Gorillaz. Also on the decks will be Prince Paul, making you appreciate his sense of humor and amazing technical skills. If you don't have his album Psychoanalysis: What is It? then get up from your computer and get it hilarious! Both of these producers are as original and irreverent as the music they produce; see you at the best hip-hop show in town! (FM)

This weekend just keeps getting better and better, with a taste for every palette available all across town. If a little tribal/breaks/house/world-beat action is your preferred Love Parade appetizer, 550 has got you covered. The Mutaytor is the epitome of a 'must-see', with 25 pieces coming together in an interactive circus of retro-funk sound, dance, and performace art that ferociously defies definition. I could talk your ear off singing the praises of this entire lineup, but with everything from Bat Makumba's blend of urban America and Brazilian tribal to DJDreamteamer Laird's groovy house, you need to hear it for yourself to grasp the greatness on tap.
