Juan Atkins will play Public Works SF on December 17th.

Juan Atkins, the legendary originator of techno from Detroit, will make a special appearance at Public Works in San Francisco on December 17th, 2011. He’ll be joined by a slew of the game’s fresh faces, including Balam Acab, oOoOO, Ghosts on Tape and Low Limit. Tickets are $10, which practically feels like stealing given all the talent in that lineup. Shows starts at 9:30PM.

The XLR8R-hosted party will also be DJd by its managing editor, Shawn Reynaldo, who immediately earns points for listing “RZA’s homey” as his credentials on the flier.
