The 12th Annual GOOFERMAN DAY
The 12th Annual GOOFERMAN DAY
As legend has it, in 2006 the Mayor of San Francisco, one Gavin Newsome, unwittingly dropped the world into the dastardly klutches of klowns by declaring April 1st forever to be recognized across the universe as ...

GOOFERMAN Day!

No shit.

Even more amusing, there was no coercion, payola, strong-arming, exploitation, sexploitation, malevolence, surreptitiousness, etc & so forth, in the making of the kommercial. Or so legend has it.

Be that as it may or may not be, as March 31st oozes into April 1st a most bombastic, barred-holds-none banquet of bubblebouncing beatitude with the original bohemianite Kings of Klown-Fi and their konspiring kompatriots SHALL ensue, like or not and back again! Your most favorable outcome will be realized if and only if you take it upon yourself to don your finest and filthiest of formal folly wear and join us for a rare and celebratory episode of absurdity in absolution!

GOOFERMAN

GOOFERMAN
GOOFERMAN
Behold Gooferman, an ever-morphing micro circus of klown-fi and wanton circus performers built on an entirely unique bedrock of breakbeat, funk, drum & bass, reggaeton, rock, hip hop, and whirled beat, all parlayed to the audiences of the world by a new-fangled, super-styled breed of klown.

Gooferman’s performed throughout the US — including festival appearances at Outside Lands, Electric Daisy Carnival, Bumbershoot, Symbiosis Gathering, Lightning In A Bottle, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Vegoose, Download Festival, Burning Man, Lagunitas Beer Circus, and the 2008 944 Superbowl VIP Party — while purveying their signature klown-fi through endless locally and regionally slotted high-octane, micro-circus spectacles both above- and underground (including SF’s acclaimed Bohemian Carnival, with co-host and frequent collaborator, the Vau de Vire Society). They’ve opened for 50 Cent and Wyclef Jean, performed with Paul Oakenfold, collaborated with Angelo Moore (of Fishbone), and shared billing with the likes of Primus, Spoon, Ween, Flaming Lips, G Love & Special Sauce, Dave Matthews, Gogol Bordello, Beats Antique, and Devotchka, among others.
Kung Fu Vampire
Kung Fu Vampire
It's hard to fathom an artist like Kung Fu Vampire of San Jose, CA getting his due shine, after all he's a Hip Hop artist in a pool of MC's talking about how cool they are, women and money but as it turns out not everyone wants their music that way and KFV has found a great deal of success through maintaining a unique artistic integrity, not caving in to Industry Pressure and giving you his uncensored vision.

Kung Fu tours with a live band of pro musicians (Chris Paxton - Drums & Jeremy Pollett - Bass) Independently conquering 12 International tours since 2010. He's been crowned 4 times as "BEST Band & Hip Hop Artist" by The Silicon Valley Metro as well as hosting his Annual "Friday The 13th Masquerade Party" which started in 2004. His music is featured on Saw Director Darren Lynn Bousman's movie "Mothers Day" he's popped up on high profile songs with Heavyweights like E40, Twiztid & Chris Webby, appears on The Discovery Channel's "Oddities" and has even performed at The Playboy Mansion.

His latest Music video "Slice Of Life" is a testament to originality and crosses boundaries into a real deal "paranormal movie" - It's guaranteed to leave you with Goosebumps and is part 3 in a series of videos that have been released thus far. on Sunday September 13th 2015 Kung Fu Vampire headlined The Sofa Fair in San Jose, CA to a crowd of over 4K!
The Klown
The Klown
Based in the cartoon-infested foo’zoo known worldwide as "San Francisco," The Klown is a double-decade veteran of the City’s revolutionary, trendsetting, underground live-music, EDM, and circus scenes, as well as one of its premier underbelly promoter-producers. In true renaissance-ape fashion, he creates his signature eclectic glitch-rich, swing-blinged, booty-rooty, bass-music mixes by tattooing bulgy-eyed goldfish with electroluminescent hieroglyphs, setting them loose in a plate-glass fishbowl brimming with proprietary LSD-laced soda water, and then monitoring their interactions and navigation patterns to derive directional inspiration. It’s dangerous work, and should never be tried at home without some kind of proper, inattentive, adult-agnostic supervision. Ever.

The Klown produces and residents Trapeze Worldwide, the internationally acclaimed US-flagship bass music and burlesque showcase dance-party supremisto. He also founded and fronts the notorious electrofunk all-klown band Gooferman, co-founded the successfully degenerate all-klown marching outfit TrashKan Marchink Band, regularly works with the inimitable Vau de Vire Society, and runs the tyrannical Circus Metropolus kult and their bootyguards, The Kops. He's also grossly misrepresented DJing and otherwise defaced musical things at venues all of the States and at all kinds of festivals — Electric Daisy Carnival, Symbiosis, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Burlesque Hall of Fame, Bumbershoot, Burning Man, The Edwardian Ball, Bohemian Carnival, and the like. While not pursuing third place with all his might, he enjoys watching humanity deal with itself, ingesting Lagunitas Brewing Co beer, monitoring UFO, bigfoot and adult-content developments, and staying up late.
