Dearest tutu lovers,
2nd Tuesdays at 222 have been the glory years of Tutu Tuesday and we feel so lucky to have shared so many special moments with you. This event marks the end of an era for our house music haven because our beloved 222 is sadly closing its doors this month. Let’s send off our love with a bang and promise to always hold her dear in our hearts.

Tu days before V-day, Tutu Tuesday invites Navid Izadi to the decks for his tutu debut in the month of love. Navid frequented Tutu Tuesday on the regular in years past, when he was out and about most nights of the week. Now he spends most of his time traveling and in the studio-working on productions for Wolf+Lamb, Soulclap, and his own upcoming album. A true musician on the brink of fame, we are fortunate enough to have the man in town for the Valentine’s edition. Spread your love on the 222 dancefloor.

The last Tutu Tuesday of 2012 is upon us and we are not slowing down one bit. listed artist Hoj is joining us from NYC with the big, bass-heavy sound that has won him droves of techno-loving hearts. At this year’s Burning Man, he followed up Lee Burridge on the Robot Heart with tremendous success—a major feat for any DJ virtuoso.
We are lucky enough that the date aligns with listed founder Gunita’s birthday! This one will go down in tutu history so don’t miss a beat.

Since returning from Burning Man, Tutu Tuesday has hit a whole new stride of excellent. The night before Halloween was a blast and you are going to love what is coming next.
Dirtybird Ardalan is the youngest member of the crew but, at the magic age of 22, he already had a slew of slick releases under his belt. Impressed with his demo, Justin Martin took this promising talent under his wing and the rest, as they say, is history. Since Martin was the first ever headliner of Tutu Tuesday, this is a special night in tutu history and we can hardly wait for Ardy to make those iconic 222 speakers bounce.

Just when you thought you knew what was coming, Tutu Tuesday cooks up an extra pot of special for All Hallow’s Eve…eve!
Alex Blackstock’s impressive 12 hour set at Burning Man this year has inspired his tutu debut, an unprecedented 5th Tuesday occasion. Resident Atish shares his always-excellent opening act with techno blood brother Mark Slee as Manju Masi. Our ears are already tingling with anticipation for the sultry, supple sounds that are about to greet them.
Your tutu hosts are stirring up a fabulous selection for the witch’s brew we call Halloween in San Francisco. As Warren G said, nobody does it better.
