“Oscar and I started at Space together when it first opened many years ago, so it was good having someone with me who knows how to start a party from scratch,” Roland says. “Our first night was like a trial, see what felt right and what needed to be done to make this successful. With the great minds involved, I knew that we had something special from the start.”
It’s a busy week for Stache, which in true speakeasy form shape-shifts its purpose
All the week’s antics lead up to Saturday’s anniversary bash celebrating the House Party's first year, when Roland will be joined by San Francisco’s Hot Dirty Bird record label founder Christian Martin, who will spin a set.
“From the moment you walk in, you will notice the sound system,” Roland says. “Every DJ who plays there always talks about the sound system and the bass. People should expect to come in and experience the same world-class talent we have been bringing each week, except we will be turning 1 on this night.”
