Underground music, natural wine, seven floors of amazing art — what do they have in common?

It’s the latest edition of Rooftop Radio. For one night only, SFMOMA’s White Box will be transformed into a natural wine bar and dance music venue, resuscitating the underground from the ’80s to now. For this episode, we’re partnering with SF’s beloved Bar Part Time.

With elegance, subtlety, and ingenuity, tonight’s DJs will blur the lines between past and present, pop and avant-garde, material and transcendent.

The Lineup

5–6 p.m.: Jeremy Castillo (Bar Part Time)
6–7 p.m.: Loveshadow (Music From Memory/Dark Entries Records)
7–8 p.m.: Josh Cheon (Dark Entries Records)

While you’re here, check out Wolfgang Tillmans: To look without fear (Floor 7). The influential German artist’s works, including ecstatic nightlife images, will enchant you. As part of this event, music from the event will be broadcast in real time throughout the exhibition galleries.

Also, it’s your last chance to experience Pacita Abad (Floor 4) before it closes on January 28 and Pan American Unity: A Mural by Diego Rivera (Floor 1), which closes on January 21.

Also on this day, Cafe 5 (Floor 5) will serve a special dish inspired by Filipino cuisine, Sinigang Fried Chicken Wings, in addition to the regular menu. Cafe 5’s kitchen will be open until 7 p.m.

The natural wine is supplied by Bar Part Time, and all proceeds from bar sales directly support Bar Part Time.

All attendees will need to have a ticket to attend this event. A limited number of tickets will be available for sale onsite starting 3 p.m. the day of the event.

About Bar Part Time

Bar Part Time was founded in 2020 by Dan Small, Jeremy Castillo, and Justin Dolezal, three friends who loved wine, nightlife, and San Francisco. Fusing these interests, the trio created a space in which the zero-additive wines that they loved could be experienced and enjoyed in an energetic, socially dynamic setting. Initially a pop-up, the eponymous wine-bar/dance-club opened in San Francisco’s Mission District in 2021. Today, Bar Part Time continues to spread the gospel of wine, music, and community throughout San Francisco and beyond.

About the Artists

Jeremy Castillo:

Born and raised in San Francisco, Jeremy Castillo has been DJing underground parties in the Bay Area since 2010. He is the co-founder of the seminal house music party, Club Lonely. When he’s not DJing, you can find him behind the bar at Bar Part Time, a music and wine bar he helped co-found in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Loveshadow members Izaak Schlossman and Anya Prisk


Bay Area DIY pop duo Loveshadow is comprised of Anya Prisk and Izaak Schlossman.

They met in Oakland in 2016, bonded over their love of ’80s sounds, and immediately began building their musical world with lush synths, funky basslines, and irresistible hooks. The past is always in their palette, but Loveshadow’s nostalgia doesn’t trace to any single locus; it’s more like a cloud, and it’s through this haze that they breathe new life into the music they love.

Josh Cheon:

Josh Cheon grew up in northern New Jersey, just outside New York City, where he spent his weekends dancing at goth clubs and digging for records. He moved to San Francisco in 2006 and joined gay DJ collective Honey Soundsystem from 2007 to 2017. His love of underground ’80s music pushed him to start Dark Entries in 2009, a record label specializing in reissuing lost music from that era as well as contemporary bands referencing those analog sounds.
