As many of you may know, I have for some time been lobbying behind the scenes to bring a nationally recognized promoter such as Masterbeat to San Diego for Pride, in an attempt to jump start a party weekend many here feel has become moribund and stale. And it looks like my efforts have finally paid off.

And as gratifying as that is, the credit here really has to go to Cavin Knight and Tristan Jaxx and the team at
Overdrive, for doing all the heavy lifting in making this a reality. I can honestly say this is the most excited I've been for the onset of Pride in years!

Overdrive at Spin Nightclub

Speaking of Overdrive, there’s going to be one this Saturday! It will be an official White Party Palm Springs pre-party, which means of course merchandise and ticket
