Prince & Michael vs Beck Beasties Beatles – New Residency!
June 13, 2014 @ 9:00 pm$10.00 – $400.00
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.Dave Paul began his music career in 1984, starting as a mobile dj and evolving into a prominent college radio dj, club dj, and remixer in San Francisco. One of his 45 minute reel-to-reel megamixes was featured on commercial radio station KMEL. During the late 80s and early 90s his weekly radio show ‘Beat Box Fridays’ on college radio station KCSF was instrumental in breaking many hip-hop records in the Bay Area market. In 1991 he launched the now legendary publication The Bomb Hip-Hop Magazine and in 1995 Paul transformed the magazine into a record label. The company was named ‘one of the fifteen independent labels that matter’ according to Rolling Stone and the labels Return of the DJ series was ranked by Spin Magazine as #25 in their ‘The 90 Greatest Albums of the 90’s’ (Sept. 1999 issue), receiving a higher rating than Gold & Platinum albums by Lauryn Hill, Pearl Jam, Tori Amos, Metallica, Green Day and Fatboy Slim. Dave Paul has been featured in URB magazine, appeared on the front cover of Billboard, and is featured in the motion picture Scratch. Mr. Paul has dj’ed throughout the US, toured Europe and the UK, released over 100 projects on his defunct record label and currently produces themed dj parties including the 10 year running Prince and Michael Experience.A kaleidoscopic Dada dance party!
