Puma “I Am 60″ Party with DJ Steve Aoki and Lady Gaga
Last Tuesday I made it out to Puma’s “I Am 60″ Party at the Great American Music Hall. I must say San Francisco is notorious for keeping abreast of the latest up and coming artists. Lady Gaga and DJ Steve Aoki were no exception. The line reached all the way to the end of the block and the house ended up being packed. When we first entered, DJ Tina T was spinning some very tasteful mash-ups including a dance version of “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” by the Bone Thugs. While the crowd waits for Aoki and Gaga, lots of jumping occurs, breaker circles are formed, and a couple of women are hoisted up on the shoulders of their boyfriends to check out…nothing because Steve Aoki hasn’t come out yet. AND THEN he arrives with his booming techno music and his bottle of Grey Goose at his hands. We heard the man is totally sober but we most certainly saw him pour the contents of the bottle down the throats of those in front row. And then it was off to backstage.
Lady Gaga with weapons of mass destruction on her head and shoulder. Here are a couple of interesting tidbits. I scored a free sandwich and I got to hear Lady Gaga warm up her vocals backstage. Stuff like that makes my night.

Lady Gaga and the Haus of Gaga. You have to check out the dress. The over-sized crystals looks like something out of a high school chemistry experiment of the old Super Mario Bros. movie. And of course, the leather jackets are compliments of Puma.
Vimby was definitely in the building.
A couple of outtakes.
The dudes of Vimby: Satva and Marco, DJ Tina T, and Me.
And now pictures of the party!
This was pretty sick.
