Twenty-Thirteen has me taking on some major side projects that are totally satisfying, but leave me less free time for promoting. Due to this inconvenient fact, I've asked our Groove Garden partner Riche Boom to handle this Summer's festivities at the Garage. That said, I am delighted to be a guest at the first few events coming up soon. Below are details on the season opener, a Saturday night complete with special guest DIZ from Chicago. A heavyweight of the scene there, San Francisco and around the world, this should be a great kick-off to a beautiful summer!

The funky one known as Diz has been a part of the Chicago House Music scene from the early days, from the dancefloor listening to the likes of Frankie Knuckles and Ron Hardy to becoming a fixture behind the decks in the legendary Wicker Park loft scene of the 1990s. As a DJ, he's best known for his ongoing residency at Boom Boom Room; as a producer, for his releases on Classic, Igloo, Amenti, Greenskeepers Music, OM and Balance.
