German producer Alex Rhida, aka Boys Noize, has made a name for himself as one of the most illustrious DJs today. Merging various styles of electronic music, Rhida’s innovative sound has earned him acclaimed awards, such as “Top 10 DJs Who Rule the Earth” by Rolling Stone and “Best Electronic Artist” by Beatport.

In 2005, Rhida launched his independent record label Boysnoize Records (BNR) to bring his own music to the world without forfeiting creative control.

“I don’t compromise when it comes to music,” the 32-year-old Rhida says. “I do what I think is cool and what I like and not what the market wants or people may expect. Maintaining artistic freedom has always been the most important thing to me — for my own music and for anyone on my label!”

A decade later, BNR remains independent and celebrates 10 years of supporting more than a dozen artists across 100 releases.

On Friday, Boysnoize Records continues the #BNR10YR celebration in SF at Mezzanine with SALVA, Spank Rock, SCNTST, Cities Aviv, PILO and Escor Krist all hitting the decks before Rhida takes the stage.

You can buy tickets for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by registering your full name and email below.

Contest ends Friday at 3 p.m.

The largest oyster festival on the West Coast returns to Sharon Meadow at Golden Gate Park this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. as the 16th annual SF Oysterfest offers plenty of prime picks from the finest oyster farms across the Pacific Coast.

As per Irish tradition, the Guinness will be flowing alongside a wide variety of adult beverages that include lagers, stouts, ale wines and premium spirit options. Guests can show off their shuck-and-suck skills in the festival’s annual crowd favorite contest, participate in various cooking demonstrations with local celebrity chefs, lose themselves in one of the live art demonstrations or take it easy with kids and four-legged friends in the meadow’s spacious and shaded play area.

At the same time, you can get down with some hip-hop heavyweights who are dominating this year’s music lineup and dance to the beats provided by some of the leading names in electronic, R&B, soul and world music. Some of the highlights of this year’s lineup include Washington, D.C.-based DJ collective Thievery Corporation, West Coast hip-hop legend Warren G, hip-hop DJ pioneer Grandmaster Flash, Salt Lake City house duo Late Night Alumni, Oakland R&B singer-songwriter Kehlani and Berkeley producer deelanZ.
