Fun-raising, Peaches and psychedelia

Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

By Alex Zaragoza
hitlist Peaches brings the nutso nudist party explosion.

We usually party with one result in mind: Have fun. But here and there, getting down at a bar has a higher purpose than dancing on a table without falling on your face or finding a willing sex partner for the night.

On Wednesday, Sept. 26, partying can help one of San Diego’s busiest DJs achieve his dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. During Funk & Oldies: FunRacer, at El Dorado (1030 Broadway, Downtown), feel free to cheer “U.S.A.!” as you shake your moneymaker to Motown, soul and funk spun by Kid Wonder, Beto Perez and the man of the hour, Saul Q., who’s raising funds to pay costs associated with becoming a citizen. He’s given you countless nights of drunken dancing and debauchery—you owe him the right to avoid serving on a jury like every other American. It kicks off with live cumbia by Azucar.

For those who haven’t used their passport in a while, dust it off and head to Tijuana’s Black Box (Calle Sexta and Avenida Revolucion in Zona Centro) on Saturday night, Sept. 29, for what’s likely to be the raddest, gnarliest party to go down in TJ in some time. Electronic-music sex bomb Peaches is throwing a huge DJ set, complete with burlesque, pyrotechnics and extremely dirty lyrical content. According to her website, it’s going to be a “psychosexual nightmare of naked kicks,” so be prepared for whatever that could possibly mean. Walk across the border and grab a taxi to the venue. It’ll cost less than a fiver and save you a two-hour border wait. Tickets are $15 in advance, $25 on the day. See peachesrockstj.com for details.

Cap the week with a strong cocktail and some great tunes on Monday, Oct. 1, for Beat Psychedelico at Live Wire (2103 El Cajon Blvd.). DJ Ethan Hull will spin ’60s vinyl, soul, surf, garage and, of course, psychedelic music. Ease into the week, or start it off with a hangover.
