THE KLOWN

Trapeze Worldwide / DirtyVolt / Vau de Vire

The Klown is a double-decade veteran of San Francisco’s revolutionary, trendsetting, underground live-music, DJ/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 staring into the sun for prolonged periods at certain undisclosable times, then throwing darts backward over his left shoulder to pinpoint candidate components on a classified holographic musical periodic table of sorts.


As for shits-n-giggles, 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 hybrid micro-circus band ZjitZjo and 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 as well as captaining their bootyguards, The Kops. He’s also grossly misrepresented DJing and otherwise defaced musical things at venues across the States and at all kinds of festivals: Electric Daisy Carnival, Symbiosis, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Burlesque Hall of Fame, Bumbershoot, Burning Man, The Edwardian Ball, LoveFest, Bohemian Carnival, and the like. While not pursuing third place with all his might, he enjoys watching humanity deal with itself, ingesting Lagunitas Brewing Co beer, and monitoring UFO/UAF, bigfoot and adult-content developments, all at once or in various combinations.
