20 years have passed since the Groove Merchant record store opened up on Haight Street in San Francisco and became the launch pad for the Ubiquity family of labels: Luv N’Haight, CuBop and Ubiquity.

The label will be celebrating this anniversary in multiple ways including an art exhibit at Guerilla Art Cafe in Berkeley opening June 25th, 2010. The show will focus on a handful of the Bay Area funk and soul artists whose music has been re-issued on the Luv N’Haight label. The art show will include paintings of, and inspired by, Darondo, Eugene Blacknell, Sugarpie Desanto, and Twilight, the latest addition to the Luv N’Haight family. The Guerilla Cafe art collective will be painting, and a video montage of vintage footage will be created by Ubiquity Recordings artist Ohmega Watts. Throughout the length of the show Guerilla will be hosting special events featuring guest appearances by the musicians and DJ sets playing their sounds.

Good tunes, pizza and beer, and a good cause…

Established in 1996 by Andrew Jervis (Ubiquity Records), The Friday Night Session is a Bay Area institution with a loyal following both locally and worldwide. Playing a consistently vibrant selection of electronic music over the San Francisco airwaves, The Friday Night Session draws on the links between contemporary music and more vintage sounds and features exclusive unreleased cuts, DJ mixes, in-studio guests and ticket giveaways to the best local events. It’s a great way to find out about new music, and either wind-up your week or get into weekend mode. The Friday Night Session runs from 10pm until 12pm every week on 90.3 FM KUSF in San Francisco, it’s also broadcast live on the net at live365.com. Playlist and shows are available in streaming format on fridaynightsession.com. The show is currently hosted by San Francisco DJs Andrew Jervis (A&R, Ubiquity Records), Mikebee (electronic music buyer for Amoeba, San Francisco), Tomas Palermo (writer, DJ and former editor of XLR8R magazine) and Cez Gonsalves (Just Good Music).

Previous guests include: Gilles Peterson, Kruder and Dorfmeister, 4Hero, Alice Russell, Koop, DJ Vadim, Windsurf, Quantic, John Tejada, Jimpster, Fauna Flash, and King Britt.

So why a benefit? Unfortunately KUSF doesn’t run on good will alone, we need the $’s! So the good folks at Jupiter are allowing us to invade Berkeley and make a little $ for the show. Come on down, get some good eats, hear a Friday Night Session selection and show your support. The event is free, with the DJs donating their earnings to the station. We’ll take donations on the night or even just “hellos”, whatever you can afford.
