(NSFW) Dama Budtender’s Ball Ft. Pickwick, Bardot, & DJ Leopold at Sunset Tavern

0 Posted by - March 20, 2015 - Events, Music

I haven’t been to the Sunset since their renovation. Mostly gone is the poor imitation of fake Asian decor (thank goodness), and the space has now been divided into a bar area up front and a music space in the back. (There is a 2nd bar at the back of the music space.)

I cannot tell you how much the acoustics have improved with this change. The old Sunset had an area in front of the stage that was always uncomfortably loud, then the sound would drop off to where you can’t feel it. The sweet spot was TINY. With the new space arrangement they somehow evened out the sound distribution and the music is a lot more enjoyable all over.

With over 1,400 RSVPs, the line went around the block at Sunset Tavern for another installment of Dama‘s Budtender’s Ball. However, when you do get in, you’re welcomed by music spun by DJ Leopold Bloom in the new cool bar area. The performances in the back was kicked off by Bardot, followed by a burlesque performance (fun but NSFW!) by Ms. Briqhouse, then Davin of the Staxx Brothers introduced the headliner that everyone came from all over to see, Pickwick.

Check out Dama‘s facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/DamaOil) and give them a like to be the first to know what parties are coming! Dama is revolutionizing the marketing and image for marijuana marketing with their unique mainstream approach.

Dama’s next (FREE!) show is on April 20 at the Nectar Lounge and features The Funk Hunters ft. Chali 2na, Polyrhythmics, Seraphina Fiero, & DJ Leopold Bloom. You can RSVP here: http://do206.com/events/2015/4/20/dama-presents.
