Keep Westword Free

Scratching the Surface: Doc Martin spins on June 23 at Jet Hotel

From the mid-'80s to the early '90s, San Francisco was a Shangri-La of house music. It's where impresarios like Doc Martin got their start or continued their careers. Martin began spinning records in the summer of 1986, playing legendary eight-hour sets at such clubs as Flammable Liquid and Sunday Love and making a name for himself as a versatile selector and eclectic mixer. His sets range from deep, sultry, vocal-centric tracks to lively, percussion-heavy tribal mixes. He tours constantly, all over the planet — and if you caught his set here in February, opening for Dubtribe, then you know he hasn't lost any of his edge through the decades. On Thursday, June 23, Team A.G. and SoJive are collaborating to bring him back for an intimate set at the Jet Hotel, with Atlanta's Ron Pullman and local favorites Frederick Gentry, Tony Rodelli, Ejay Toledo and more.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
