In 2015 Sunset SF and Silent Frisco merged to create HUSHconcerts. This re-launch allowed us to unify two amazing Bay Area communities that share our passion for excellence, innovation, diversity and fun. As time goes by, we will continue to relentlessly experiment to find new ways to put a smile on your face. This weekend we celebrate our one-year anniversary as HUSHconcerts (18 years in the business) with two unique groups that epitomize both the live music and dance communities that we have worked so hard to catalyze.

HUSHconcerts is proud to present an exclusive intimate performance with Brooklyn’s BREAK SCIENCE. A cross between an EDM performance and a futuristic rock-band, Break Science is being hailed as one of the most exciting and refreshingly original acts in live-tronic music. Comprised of world-renowned drummer/producer, Adam Deitch (Lettuce, Pretty Lights, John Scofield), and keyboardist/producer Borahm Lee (Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Matisyahu), Break Science is a musical force to be reckoned with. Drawing on their inspiration from New York City’s rich musical legacy — funk, jazz, soul — and their own hip hop backgrounds, the duo uses live loops, synths, and Lee’s virtuosic keyboard skills to rebuild classic sounds into something truly modern. This is cutting edge electronic music for the funk aficionado. Joining Break Science are San Francisco’s live electronic trio, NVO, a San Francisco live electronic trio that is on roughly the same journey. Get Tickets HERE!
