About DJ Aaron Axelson
Aaron has been a fixture in the SF club scene for years now, often opening up for artists at venues like Mezzanine, The Independent, Fox Theater, Rickshaw Stop, and The Fillmore.

About Popscene
Venerable San Francisco indie nightclub POPSCENE had humble beginnings. It was the original vision of four relentless music fans who collectively first met at formidable independent record store Mod Lang in Berkeley, CA back in the early ‘90s. Aaron Axelsen, Omar Perez, Eric Shea, and Jeremy P. Goldstein all shared the same passion and affinity for the UK music scene of the time, which encompassed bands like My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead, Stone Roses, Lush, Blur and Pulp, to name a few. This insatiable passion led to the birth of POPSCENE, currently one of the longest-running weekly parties in the country after making its definitive debut on the San Francisco nightlife scene 21 years ago.
