Far Out Halloween with Mark Farina & Simon Shackleton

DJ Mark Farina

Mark Farina has thrilled crowds globally, entertaining over 1 million fans per year. As one of the most ubiquitous DJs in Dance Music, Farina's known for both his unique style of mixing Jazz, Downtempo and House Music as well as being the creator of Mushroom Jazz: West Coast jazzy, organic productions combined with East Coast Hip-Hop, Urban beats.
Drawing from his vibrant youth, which included being a trumpet player in marching band, a drummer in a nu wave cover band and a guest DJ, Friday nights on WNUR (Chicago), Mark found his passion for the luscious world of vinyl, turntables and nightclubs. At 16, Farina began his DJ career as a resident at Chicago's underage mecca, Medusa's. At the same time Mark joined forces with emerging DJs Derrick Carter and Chris Nazuka then moved into a loft space called Rednail.
Rednail became infamous not only for raucous parties but also as the home to the trio's first productions under the moniker, Symbols & Instruments. Their release,"MOOD," sold 35,000 copies in the US & UK and is credited as "the first ambient house track."
Farina relocated to San Francisco in 1992. Fans embraced Mark's downtempo style and he started co-hosting a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in ʻ93. In 3 short years, Farina established a fanatical, cult-like following for his Mushroom Jazz sound and in 1996, OM Records released the first mixed comp CD, simply titled, Mushroom Jazz. Other notable releases include OMʼs Seasons, San Francisco Sessions Vol. 1, Connect, House of Om, Live in Tokyo, and Fabric 40.
When Mark's not touring the world, you're likely to find him in his studio working on new releases & podcasts for his label, Great Lakes Audio. On days off he'll be cruising his '68 Toronado with his son, Dylan (aka "little peanut"), and his Yorkie, Pumpkin.
Voted as one of the top DJ's in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM magazines, Mark Farina's taste making skills continue to turn the heads of seasoned Dance Music veterans as well as newcomers to the scene.


The One Series is back. Pure Electronic Music with Heart & Soul.

Simon Shackleton's One Series - One DJ, One Room, All Night - is a growing passion and he's garnered sold out shows all over the world from San Francisco to Sydney to London. He returns to San Francisco for the first time in a year after selling out The Gingerbread House last fall, on the brink of a new album due out in February, for his fifth San Francisco One Series.

"That was an incredible night of transcendent music, loving friends & over all good times........" [SFO012]

Simon's One Series sets are deep and compulsive journeys, seamlessly blending, morphing and building throughout the night to create something far greater than the sum of its parts. His open-hearted sets tell stories on a grand scale, provoking emotion and movement in equal parts, whilst he revels in the journey alongside a devoted and passionate crowd.

"What an amazing night - excellent performance, great crowd, and an all-around awesome vibe! I could barely restrain myself from going full-out fanboy on Simon at the end of the show, lol." [DEN014]

The One Series at Publicworks will most likely Sell Out given previous shows in the City. We would strongly advise ensuring your place down the front by booking an advance ticket ASAP.

Third Twin

Just a young kid who started off while no one was home. Started by playing in the garage while no one was home but got caught by his older brothers who gave him some tips. Little by little getting better and finding his own groove and nitch in the music scene. Since then he has split off being dependent and just doing his own thing. Influenced by all sorts of music and sounds and styles. Isnt interested in just one type of genre but many. He has been playing all through Mexico, and southern california. Slowly finding his own style when creating his own tunes. Expect to see many more great things in the near future as he has barely begun to expand and produce and taking off on new ventures.

$25.00 - $35.00
