We’ve put together a stellar line-up of live house music for Saturday, January 21st including SF/Oakland quartet NVO, and East Bay/LA trio Eko Zu. Take3 Presents and Local 808 Co-Founder Mischa will be spinning tunes as well. Additionally, Eko Zu will be celebrating the release of their new EP. Lasers by DurtyDJs. Pew pew!

And hey, it’s inauguration weekend. F*ck that noise! Come dance it out. We’re donating a portion of the proceeds to the ACLU and Women’s March Bay Area. Get your groove on for a good cause.


Since 2010, NVO has been rocking the scene with a steady assault of guitar, bass, drums, synthesizers and whatever else they find to channel the funk. The group takes an organic path to groove creation, always dissecting and reconstructing their sounds with the freshest tech. The resulting fusion of bass-heavy rock, sci-fi funk and rave-hop epitomizes the NVO sound as they blast you into space – featuring producer/guitarist Mike Laglia, drummer Greg Maximov, DJ Chuck Jones, and recent addition vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charles Darius.

NVO’s forthcoming EP, “The Signal” is a turning point for the group, moving from purely instrumental compositions to lyrically focused songs, and features collaborations with Lateef the Truthspeaker and Eko Zu. The group has 5 EPs and 1 LP to date, and a recent official remix for Mochipet. Their music has been featured in the Hulu show “Resident Advisors” and at the SF Giant’s stadium. Their signature live performances include custom-built visuals and projection mapping, ensuring that late-night dance devotees leave sweaty and satisfied. 

Eko Zu (EP Release Party)

Guaranteed to break the norm from any musical act you’ve seen or heard, EKO ZU captivates audiences time after time. Composed of the trio Zu’ri, Zu’ian and Zu’CH3N from the deserted isle of Eko, in the Mariana Archipelago, their Hybrid House group is unlike any other.

Part animal, part human, these crossover creatures incorporate a wild harmony to provide fans with something fresh and innovative. Through the harmonious guitar strums from Zu’CH3N, to the raw melodic sounds of Zu’ri’s voice, mixed with the wild percussive patterns of Zu’ian’s drums, the trio captures everything from jungle sounds to mystic lullabies of the Pacific.


Mischa is a cofounder of Take 3 Presents and Local 808. He like long walks on the beach and big speakers.
