Haute Mess

Sofia, 02 Sat, 10 p.m., $5

Maybe the reason people throw dance parties for charity is because the experience of going out, getting hammered and hooking up is so degrading—the body turned into a pile of stinking trash—that the only way to recover morally is knowing that the proceeds from a night of drinking, drugs and STDs will go toward a good cause. That’s what Pyramid Schema does. They party for a cause, man. Their next dance party benefits the noble Equality California, a group that is actively trying to repeal Proposition 8. The night includes performances from Brian Starts Riots, the Robot and JJ, 20,000, Jake Swift and DJ Whores. 815 11th Street, www.pyramidschema.com.
