Besties nightlife talents for 2023

From your favorite DJs to drag performers of all kinds, you, our readers, selected their favorite people in nightlife. Live bands, bartenders, gogo dancers and more talented folks get a nod for 2023.

Best DJ: Lady Ryan
Runners-up: David Harness, Page Hodel

From her performance in June 2022 at the Toro y Moi concert at Stern Grove (which sold out in 30 minutes) to her show on KALW (Wednesday nights from 10pm to Midnight) to her work as a co-founder of Soulovely (which 

“curates an extraordinary platform that celebrates and sustains the unwavering spirit and beauty of Oakland’s queer and trans-BIPOC communities”) Lady Ryan is a true force for good in developing a better and more accepting Bay Area.

She has shared the stage with such luminaries as Diana Ross, George Clinton, Erykah Badu, Anderson Paak and the Indigo Girls, and most recently has been seen enchanting her fans at the Town Bar and the White Horse. Our readers truly appreciate you and the joy you share uplifting our community.
