Dylan Charles Germick Soul Booty #1
is unabashedly funky and charismatically human
Neighborhood: The Mission
What are you up to these days? Using the power of the Booty to build my dreams into reality.
What event will we find you at this month? April 8th, Easter in the Park opening up for The Hunky Jesus Contest or April 28th headlining Cafe du Nord.
SF is... a nine year old ordering a decaf mocha, two leather daddies walking their dog in assless chaps, a beautiful Latin mural, someone using their iPad while driving a Mercedes, a homeless man doing jumping jacks in his underwear, a steaming bowl of pho on a foggy afternoon, jazz music with a sip of wine, a whiff of flowers in February, and a woman in a long skirt hula-hooping while someone smokes a joint in the park.
Where do you get your local gossip? Miles Garnier is a regular at where I serve tables during the day, Mission Beach Cafe. SFBay.ca is her new news blog and it’s fantastic!
Where's your go-to date place? The dance floor… 'cause if the sparks don’t fly there how are you gonna start a fire in the bedroom? Some good ones include Sweater Funk at Li Po or Afrolicious at the Elbo Room… Droptop Disco at The Layover for all my Oaklanders.
Where do you go to relax and get away from it all? AstaYoga with Rene or Sunday nights at The Mint Karaoke Bar. Sometimes belting a couple R. Kelly tunes from down deep is exactly what the soul is searching for.
What's your favorite SF institution? Sutro Tower. I have always been drawn to it and often think… If our civilization disappeared in a flash and a thousand years later humans came back to SF and saw this structure, would they think it was our God or something very symbolically important? It sits tall above the city, sometimes even above the fog, reaching its arms out to the sky as if it was calling out to something, sometimes seemingly exulting, sometimes desperately begging, and other times just vanishing in the fog. Whoa, deep bro…
What's next for you in your work/creative world? Crafting a dance song that will literally take people's pants off for them.
What's next for San Francisco? A complete and utter Planet Booty takeover: asses in the streets bouncing uncontrollably, people of all sizes, sorts, and sexual orientations dancing together, covered in sweat, marching into a new generation of musical and cultural understanding.
