Sweet! The Museum of Ice Creams opens in San Francisco and you have a chance to go on us! by Christopher Moulios

Recently, we made our way to LA to visit The Museum of Ice Cream with no idea that it would eventually land in our bay area backyard.

The Hotline DJ Crew was drawn in by the pink retro phone room and of course, the famous pool of sprinkles.

It didn't seem like it could get any better, until they announced the museum would open another location in San Francisco!

From the looks of it San Francisco intends to blow LA out of the water with all new magical rooms!

Hop on the indie party bus! by Christopher Moulios

One of our goals when creating Hotline was to connect all of our favorite indie dance parties in San Francisco.  That is why we are so happy this time around to be able to add Popscene to the mix for Hotline at DNA Lounge on Friday June 30th.

In the spirit of bringing our parties together, we LITERALLY connected Fringe and The Queen is Dead back in May on a Gillibus back and forth between the parties!

With a little help from Glitter Friends and photographer Deb Leal we set off between Madrone Art Bar & Milk Bar in San Francisco.

"Our parties had been running on the same night for years and I always wanted to figure out a way to combine them.  I took some inspiration from this still of the Grimes video for Genesis and thought, how hard could it be to rent a party bus?" - DJ Blondie K

So we grabbed some of our favorite friends from the Hotline Street Team and made a night of it.

What we learned:

2 parties are better then 1!

Dress to impress!

Don't leave home without your phone.

Remain seated when the party bus is in motion. Trust us...

A pit stop to a favorite hang out is a great idea.

And finally, call all your friends and let them know where the party is going down!!!

If you think 2 parties are better then 1 just wait until we bring 5 INDIE DANCE PARTIES together for you for one epic night! 13 of San Francisco's favorite indie DJs in 4 rooms come together for one night at HOTLINE with dance parties Popscene, Fringe, The Queen is Dead, Last Night & Harder Better Faster Stronger.

Glitter Friends will also be there to get you ready for your glam shots in the Hotline Photo Booth Room. 

So call your girlfriend, call your lyft, but whatever you do, don't call out sick.  This party bus hits the station for one night only!!! 

HOTLINE is Friday June 30th at DNA LOUNGE. Jump on board!

Everyone is calling in on the Hotline and here's what they've been saying:

DO THE BAYhttp://dothebay.com/p/hotline-indie-dance-party

"While going to a club with your friends and getting down to the hottest hits over drinks can be just what you need on a Saturday night, sometimes you really just need to shout the lyrics to your favorite songs from the top of your lungs with friendly strangers and dance the night away. And that’s exactly what you’ll find at Hotline, a brand new party debuting March 31st at DNA Lounge that celebrates the good, the bad, and the weird of indie rock."

SFWEEKLYhttp://www.sfweekly.com/music/allshookdown/hey-dj/hey-dj-the-local-indie-djs-of-hotline/

"This Friday, rekindle your memories of the MySpace era with Hotline, the party celebrating all things indie with 13 local DJs playing a spectrum of retro jams from Brit-pop to electroclash. The event will also feature a DJ set by local band Panic is Perfect!, performances by Per Sia and The No Mirror Movement, and a special room full of old-school telephones and photo booths."

PARTY RADARhttp://48hills.org/2017/03/30/party-radar-shes-back/

"HOTLINE Dancing to indie music in big club DNA – sounds absolutely grand, especially when brought to you by a slew of the Bay’s best indie party crew, from The Queen is Dead to Fringe. Fri/31, 9pm-3am, $10-$15. DNA Lounge, SF."

Meet Your DJs: Last Nite's DJ Jamie Jams & Rocky by Christopher Moulios

DJ Jamie Jams & Rocky bring you all the hits from a time when punks suddenly remembered how to dance. They throw Last Nite, the 2000's Indie Dance Party every 2nd Fridays at Make-Out Room.  "It's like we ate Pitchfork, stole your iPod and then rode off on your track bike. "

You can catch them in the upstairs lounge during Hotline on Friday March 31st at DNA Lounge in an epic battle with The Queen is Dead dance party.  

“One interesting side effect of the unprecedented speed of life in our information age is that society’s nostalgia cycles have been compressed substantially. It used to be that what came 20-25 years before was fun, hip, and cool (in an ironic way) again; now, it’s more like 10 years and change. Enter Last Nite, a party unabashed in its barely there nostalgia, which harks back to that early-mid aughts period when legions of punks discovered the wonders of disco, house, and dance music — nevermind that many of them scorned it in decades prior — and began trading guitars for synthesizers." -Party Radar, By Marke B., 48 Hills, April 10th, 2016
