Silent Frisco
Silent Frisco
Silent Frisco is a crew of San Francisco sonic missionaries dedicated to turning impossible situations into musical magic. We specialize in enabling performances in public spaces where "noise" has previously made such performances impractical or illegal. By using our custom "Silent Frisco" wireless headphones, the music can play while neighbors enjoy peace and quiet. Once one removes "noise" from the equation, public music gatherings can be seen for what they truly are: an unalienable civil right.

We are based in San Francisco but have traveled far and wide to bring this unique performance technology to happy listeners. Among the events that either Silent Frisco, or our founder Robbie "MoPo" Kowal have performed at are Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Treasure Island Music Festival, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Earthdance, Harmony Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Sea of Dreams NYE, and Ghost Ship Halloween. We've put music on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, Miami Beach in Florida, and Town Beach in Bridgeport Connecticut. We helped to revive legendary outdoor artspaces the Silo in Houston and Austin Enchanted Forest. In 2010, Silent Frisco conceieved and executed the "Silent Soundclash Tour" the nation's first Silent Disco club tour. Show us a place where "music Is not allowed" and we will show you how to get make it happen.

Smasheltooth
Smasheltooth
There once was a dreamy-eyed lass and only punk rock and hardcore could make her shake her ass. One day she was walking around the block when she heard a boombox play hip hop. She started dancing and yelling YAAAAY but fell over and landed in a pile of dancehall-reggae. Reggae covered her eyes and face when she meandered into a basement playing drum and bass. This music made her dance and shake her back until she thought she'd have a heart attack. Then an unknown mysteriously deep bass sound led her into a secret room where dubstep was abound. Deciding she'd already fallen in love with enough musics in this one day, she finally went home and had dreams of getting thizz faced and riding the whip with Mac Dre.
Stridah
Stridah
Producing salient frequencies that bridge the gap between nature, technology, and mind, Stridah stands to channel the endless offerings of the Datacloud and form them into the physical. Inspired by the forever hours of countless unslept nights, slow mornings arisen and full moon's glory, and proliferating the ideals of programmer's past endeavors to allow for the efficient translations to effect the moments beyond. Working toward a futurepast in which the harmony of vibration begets the distortions and dissolutions of the invisible walls that we each find need to be dismantled. Congruent with the deep bedrocks of earth and the upper ionic fields that protect our small niche at the bottom of the Great Air Ocean, awareness is exquisite.
The Pirate
The Pirate
26 Year old Andrew Gruver, aka The Pirate, has etched out a solid place for himself in the highly saturated DJ real estate along the Coastline of California and beyond in just 5 years behind the turntables. Currently, he hosts a future bass monthly called Space Bass – alongside Little John of Raindance infamy – in downtown Santa Cruz, and rocks clubs and festivals up and down the west coast. His sets are fueled by an instinctive ability beyond his years, as he combines all styles of bass music, while staying grounded in his heart and soul – reggae and hip hop. His selections and mixes keep even the most pervasive dub spotter enthralled and will keep any dance floor packed. Be sure to catch The Pirate at festivals and events this summer- he'll probably be in the back of the crowd in a cloud of smoke.. OR up in front, behind the decks! baBOOM!
