Local DJ, event producer and all around good guy Sam Sascha Keshavarz (aka Sam I Jam) is turning 40 soon and to celebrate, he’s throwing another one of his always awesome Le Twist parties on Thursday, Aug. 30 at LowBrau (1050 20th St., Sacramento). Beside it being Sam’s B-Day party, there are a plethora of other reasons why you should attend. First off, headlining the night will be the debut of a new dance project from two local legends, electronic music master Dusty Brown, and Kris Anaya of one of my all time favorite Sacramento bands, Doombird. Although there isn’t much info online about it, Brown and Anaya’s new project is rumored to be a live analog dance set, meaning no laptops on stage. I know, crazy. If I was a betting man, I’d wager they are going to be amazing to see live. In addition to that, Paper Pistols, another beloved local electronic project, will be reuniting to play this gig as well. If that wasn’t enough, you can also expect DJ sets from some of the city’s finest musical vibe setters, including Sam I Jam himself, along with Adam J, Roger Carpio and Satapana. The icing on the (birthday) cake though is that this show is free! It’s like Sam is giving us a gift for his 40th! Kicks off at 9 p.m., 21-and-over only.
