Mercury Soul returns to San Francisco with a show at Ruby Skye, one of the Bay Area's premiere clubs.

Led by composer/DJ Mason Bates (aka DJ Masonic), Mercury Soul is a hybrid music event featuring classical and DJ sets merged together with engaging electro-acoustic interludes. Using the innovations of modern lighting and club production, Mercury Soul re-imagines the classical music experience for a broad audience in extraordinary spaces, from clubs to warehouses to concert halls.
