We’ve got live music down to a science. Noise Pop Music and Arts Festival returns with a special set from electronic dance duo Bodysync — aka Ryan Hemsworth and Giraffage.


The Show - Bodysync (Giraffage & Ryan Hemsworth), jarradcleofé, and discnogirl


  • 6:00 - 7:15 PM - Come early for a DJ set from the steadfast sonic powerhouse, discnogirl, an Oakland-based DJ and part-time party-thrower.
  • 7:15 - 8:15 PM - Get all the way warmed up with jarradcleofé, a DJ and producer known for his kaleidoscopic and forward thinking take on house music, infusing elements of progressive and lofi.
  • 8:15 - 9:45 PM - Close out the night with Bodysync, the electronic duo consisting of producers Ryan Hemsworth & Giraffage. Exploring bright, carefree dance music in all varieties, Bodysync’s music is steeped in referential nods to the classics but firmly focused on pushing forward the sounds of today.
