Dore Alley/Up Your Alley, San Francisco’s “dirty little brother” to the larger and more “stroller-friendly” Folsom Street Fair, just wrapped up its 34th edition. Beyond being a weekend of fetish, flogging, spanking, occasional public sex and butch posturing, Dore has turned into quite the smorgasbord of dancing through its official and unofficial parties on top of the main event that takes place on Sunday.
From the Josh Cheon/Dark Entries party Steam @ the Powerhouse on Friday, to Saturdays ever increasingly essential Mr. S Leather Dore Party, to the Official Saturday and Sunday Dance Events which this year boasted the likes of DJ Harvey, there was something for everyone. Here are the songs we danced to, rubbed butts to, and dropped our “overpriced and not as good as they used to be” poppers on the floor to. While we ice our bums and count down the days until next year’s event, please enjoy this tracks we heard, Up Your Alley playlist.
