6.2.16 – Raising the Bar, the Beach, the Theatre, the Lighthouse, the Park…
HUSHconcerts is so grateful for the vibrant, creative Bay Area community and we constantly feel the challenge to impress you, to wow you, to go above and beyond. While the Silent Disco comcept seems to have found a mainstream following, our HUSHcasts take them so much further. Why put on headphones to dance in a CLUB, when you can use them to experience uncommon locations. Our upcoming HUSHcasts atOCEAN BEACH (This Saturday), THE PANHANDLE, (Next Saturday, June 11) SPIRIT FORWARD at the CHAPEL (Sunday, July 3) and SANTA CRUZ (Saturday, July 9) aren’t just outdoor concerts, they’re statements of what CAN be done with a bit of gumption.
CYMANDE & THE BUDOS BAND @ THE REGENCY THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 5: Why JUST present a once in a lifetime performance by a UK funk legend like CYMANDE, when you could combine them with a newschool funk legend like THE BUDOS BAND at a historic theatre. CYMANDE last toured the West Coast FORTY YEARS AGO. This Sunday may be your one chance to catch them. Get tickets here. HUSHFEST: OCEAN BEACH, THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 4: On June 4th we bring back our signature bi-annual event, HUSHfest: Ocean Beach. This one-of-a-kind, solar-powered, headphone-only, art car staged, three channel, all ages, kid-friendly concert typically brings over two-thousand people to one of San Francisco’s most scenic places, Kelly’s Cove. We present one of the most exciting producers in electronic music, Dirtybird Records‘ J.PHLIP. Joined on the up tempo channel by local heroes W.HAZE (Space Cowboy Zach Moore’s house persona), SEPEHR, RACHEL TORRO, and GRENSTA. Our down tempo channel will drip with the funk, in this case, Canadian phenom DEFUNK. He will be joined by SoCal star ORPHIC, and two of the Bay’s funkiest beat slingers, MANCUB and MOTION POTION.
