Trapeze Worldwide
Trapeze Worldwide
The West Coast’s internationally acclaimed bonfire of bass and burlesquerotti takes their seismic seduction on safari with an explosive one night stand of voodoo, volume and voluptuousness in Sebastopol, California. Doll-up and dance to the dirtiest decibels on the Barbary Coast with bass music/electroswing circus-renegade resident San Francisco DJ The Klown, and local spinwizard Malarkey. In between DJ sets, feast your peepers on sweltering burlesque performances courtesy of the world-class Trapeze danceurs. Equal parts Weimar cabaret and wild speakeasy dance orgy, Trapeze lures a bevy of underworld flappers, vipers, vamps, and villains to a bass-fueled night of jazz age abandon.

'From LA to Vancouver, the wandering burlesque dance party known as Trapeze has been scorching stages and seducing dance floors with an immersive kaleidoscope of haunting melodies and seismic beats. Driven by San Francisco DJ/Producer duo Delachaux and The Klown, Trapeze has been christened as the official lightning rod of the west coast underground's burgeoning electro-swing cult and features a parade of DJs, dancers and demimondes with a cheeky, bass heavy taste for vintage, old world wonder that's been spliced, diced and hotwired on tomorrow's sonic dope. Recently heralded by the SF Examiner, LA Weekly and Insomniac Magazine as one of underground dance music's most innovative directions, Trapeze continues to ambush swelling audiences with some of the most uniquely refreshing sights and sounds in contemporary nightlife' - Beatport
The Klown
The Klown
Based in the cartoon zoo known worldwide as San Francisco, The Klown is a double-decade veteran of the City’s revolutionary, trendsetting, underground live-music, EDM, and circus scenes, as well as one of its premier underbelly promoter-producers. In true renaissance-ape fashion, he creates his signature eclectic glitch-rich, swing-blinged, booty-rooty, bass-music mixes by tattooing bulgy-eyed goldfish with electroluminescent hieroglyphs, setting them loose in a plate-glass fishbowl brimming with proprietary LSD-laced soda water, and then monitoring their interactions and navigation patterns to derive directional inspiration. It’s dangerous work, and should never be tried at home without some kind of proper inattentive adult-agnostic supervision. Ever.

Along with his yeti-descended and longtime co-misadventurist Delachaux, The Klown produces and residents Trapeze Worldwide, the internationally acclaimed US-flagship bass music and burlesque showcase dance-party supremisto. He also founded and fronts the notorious electrofunk all-klown band Gooferman, co-founded the successfully degenerate all-klown marching outfit TrashKan Marchink Band, regularly works with the inimitable Vau de Vire Society, and runs the tyrannical Circus Metropolus kult and their bootyguards, The Kops. While not pursuing third place with all his might, he enjoys watching humanity deal with itself, ingesting Lagunitas Brewing Co beer, monitoring UFO, bigfoot and adult-content developments, and staying up late.
MALARKEY: Ma-lar-key: me-lar-ke'

(juke joint, skinny kitty tea house, decadance)

1. irish slang: exaggerated or foolish talk, usually intended to deceive.

2. meaningless talk or nonsense

Don't be fooled by imitators... the ORIGINAL Malarkey... 20+ years from vinyl to digital... whether it's dusty electro swing or mashed up ghetto funk... expect a mid tempo glitchy bass line.

Born, raised and still residing in Sebastopol CA (wine country north of SF), his 6 year weekly (jUkE jOiNt) club event pioneered dance music in the area having hosted some of the worlds most renowned electronic music producers... all while weaving variety shows & burlesque soirées along the way.

Having opened for the likes of Les Claypool, Beats Antique, Bonobo, Mark Farnia, PantyRaid, and many more.

From DJ to club promoter, venue talent buyer, audio engineer, event producer, stage designer to fine whiskey drinker... the banter is endless.
