As I journeyed out this week to The Independent to catch the Theophilus London concert, I knew I was going to be in for something special. I’ve been a fan of Theophilus for a few years now and have watched him grow and settle in to his own style, his own vibe. I was excited to see his brand transcend from my itunes and into real life and what I was expecting is exactly what I got.

The concert, the music, the crowd were all about vibes. Positive vibes. Rhythm. Street style. A full band. Theophilus London has created a niche for himself and its clear to see that it resonates well with his fans. Especially the fashion forward ones rocking wide brimmed hats and skinny jeans like they had just popped over from Paris fashion week.

To give you a vision of his sold out show he brought to San Francisco, here is a recap of my night.

8:08 PM: Arrival and check in to The Independent.  If you’ve never been its a small and intimate music venue, yet iconic, rich with history and upcoming talent alike.

9:20 PM: First up is Doja Cat, a Los Angeles based female artist with smooth vocals and lyrics.

10:05 PM: Following Doja Cat was Father, the Atlanta based hip hop star and producer. You can see that he’s got style… he took the stage wearing a fur coat and Adidas gym shorts with a knee brace. Swag. On the last leg of a 17 city tour, Father built the energy in the room and debuted a few exclusive upcoming releases.

11:00 on: Vibes. Theophilus London blends style and music bringing the energy of the crowd to a new level. Dancing, swaying, and grooving… he brings it all night.

Afterparty at Harlot: Theophilus arrives and huddles with his crew in the upstairs VIP section. Harlot is one of the sexier, small room nightclubs in San Francisco – a perfect match and closing to a Theophilus filled night. Also, in the house was G-Eazy fresh off of his latest tour – From the Bay to the Universe.

Hey Brightsiders, I’m Jake Randolph or better known as Jakey around these parts. I am the San Francisco Manager for Brightside and I’m in charge of all of the unique music, stories and events coming out of the great city of San Francisco. My exposure to music started when my older sisters would repeatedly make me listen to 90’s Pop music like Michael Jackson, Paula Abdul, New Kids on the Block and many others. Big shout out to my mom for letting me rock MC Hammer Pants and a Vanilla Ice haircut! As I transcended through my youth and teenage years I was hooked on Hip Hop and R&B with a little Rock mixed in here and there. After college I moved to SF and I kicked off my DJ career. I am now DJing throughout the Western US and working as a Producer making all sorts of dance music. To me… music is not just something you listen to… its a language that speaks to people all over the world. No matter where you are or what type of mood you’re in, there’s always a song out there that can take you to a better place. Blue Skies and Good Vibes.
