Hot Chip (DJ set)
This London-based Indietronica group has made a name for themselves as one of the most distinctive and innovative bands of the early 21st century. While known for their dreamy, hypnotic wash of sound, when they put down their instruments and step up to the DJ booth, youâll hear a killer synth-pop sound meant for the dance floor.
Grab your wireless headsets and boogie to today's best pop and hip-hop beats at a silent disco dance party courtesy of HUSHconcerts! Rumor has it you may be showing off your best moves surrounded by angelfish, blue tangs, and unicornfishâand not far from Claude, our albino alligator!
This year we bring you two of the Bay Area's most beloved food trucks to supply your late night snacking needs: Filipino fusion truck Senor Sisig and gourmet sandwich slinger Grilled Cheese Bandits.
Psychedelic Cocktail Lounge
With the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love just around the corner, what better way to celebrate than a '60s themed cocktail lounge? Enjoy far out drinks, the grooviest atmosphere in the city, and maybe even some go-go dancers...
