RSVPAbout Omar Perez
DJ Omar was raised in the thriving musical subcultures of Washington, D.C., where he was exposed to sounds such as Punk, Freestyle, Goth, New wave, Synth-Pop, and Go-Go at concerts and clubs. He credits this early education for the eclectic and open-minded slant he brings to mixing records. Omar has produced some of the most musically diverse and inclusive dance parties in San Francisco. In a local nightlife scene that falls prey to segmentation, he has attracted scenesters and curious bystanders alike with great clubs such as Popscene, Sixxteen, Bordello, Fake, and The Finger. He is also currently the DJ for legendary director John Waters' Annual San Francisco Christmas Shows and Oakland's Burger Boogaloo. He's presented Club Fake in San Jos��as a monthly party at the Blank Club and has been a guest DJ at Club Satori and the Ritz.
