Artist Preview: John Tejada, idiot Savant, Markie B, LeafyGreen

We, along with our friends at Pocket Underground, are excited to announce the final Woogie Nights in San Francisco before Lightning in a Bottle 2012! John Tejada will be headlining with idiot Savant, Markie B. and LeafyGreen rounding out a night full of body moving jams. Discount pre-sale tickets are available here.


Listen to John Tejada’s full performance from Woogie Nights Los Angeles earlier this year on Pocket Underground’s website.

Normally associated with his peers in techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere, John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his resume as a techno recording artist as producer, remixer, DJ, and label owner. Known for crafting a brand of subtle, musical techno, his recorded output ranges across tempo and genre lines, from chilled out affairs with spacious arrangements to pulsating, densely layered, deeply energetic tracks that work magnificently in the hands of DJs as well as on the home stereo.

Much like the layer of congealed fat settling on the top of Momʼs Gefilte Fish, Ron Levy  and Jesse Wright formed a deliciously disgusting DJ duo known as idiot Savant.  The  duo devised Pocket Underground in 2004 as an outlet for the Matzoh balls that were  rattling around in their chicken broth.  Ron has been playing and making music since he  was knee-high to a duck and Jesse just does it for the free drink tickets.  Both feel  equally at home with their alkaline goggles on as they do their Burberry Banana  Hammocks.  Their music can best be described as organic, psychedelic, sexy and completely  Kosher… Glatt Kosher…

Markie B.’s first exposure to the San Francisco music scene was at a Pink Mammoth event in early 2004 whereby he quickly became one of Pink Mammoth’s first “groupies.” Over the years, he has stuck with Pink Mammoth through ups and downs and now considers the collective his family. As rhythm was the first attraction, Mark has drawn from his home town love for New Orleans funk and has developed a refined taste for house music.
