This Friday Night, January 30th, is an evening of Firsts. To begin, we are featuring a Double Header of Outrageous DJ/Producer Talent – Nominus and Alia! Neither have played with us before and now, they’re coming together to perform in one amazing night!
Opening Set Alia: 8:30-10:00pm and then Nominus takes us through to the evening’s end: 2nd Set Nominus: 10:00-11:30pm!
Some background: ALIA is a San Francisco-based Producer, DJ, and Vocalist. Dubbed “The Sonic Shamaness.” ALIA creates music and weaves sets that are an intoxicating, luscious blend of sacred sounds and cutting-edge bass to create a pulsating, hypnotic journey into activated bass music. Her music is exquisitely healing moving both hearts and bodies.
ALIA has crossed international borders and traversed coasts to perform at a variety of transformational festivals including Envision Festival, Lucidity Festival, Enchanted Forest Festival, Beloved Gathering, Wanderlust Festival and Burning Man. She is also a regular fixture at the most high-frequency events of San Francisco’s bass music scene and a resident of the worldwide phenomenon Ecstatic Dance.

And after an hour and a half being transported to new heights by Alia, Nominus takes the helm. Here’s some info on his musical journey…
A nomadic San Franciscan with influences from around the world, Nominus blends a variety of musical talents to create a unique and genre-defying sound. He began his musical journey as a classically trained guitarist who later went on to study a wide range of percussion. After years of playing in live bands, Nominus felt the desire to expand his sound in new ways which lead him to electronic production.
Nominus fuses lush organic melodies with deep, chunky rhythm sections to create a sound that is beautiful, yet moves the dance floor with mind-blowing energy. This, along with tasteful sound design and cutting edge bass, takes the listener on a journey that weaves light and dark into one harmonious experience…
