The Klown

Based in the cartoon zoo called San Francisco, The Klown is a double-decade veteran of the city’s revolutionary, trendsetting underground live-music, DJ, and circus scenes, as well as one of its premier underbelly promoter-producers. As a renaissance ape, he creates his signature eclectic electroswing, swing hop and glitch mixes by tattooing bulgy-eyed goldfish with idea hieroglyphs, setting them loose in a plexiglass fishbowl full of LSD-laced soda water, and then monitoring their interactions and navigation patterns to derive directional inspiration. Along with co-misadventurist Delachaux, The Klown produces and residents Trapeze, the internationally acclaimed US-flagship electroswing & burlesque event. He also founded and fronts the live electroswing mercenary outfit, JOLLIGOOD Unlimited, and founded and previously fronted the notorious all-klown band Gooferman. While not pursuing third place with all his might, he enjoys sponsorship beer from Lagunitas, UFO hoaxes, and watching porn. web fb tw sc
