MAD NOISE
What do you get when you compile a group of musically-inclined individuals named Mogli, Khalil, Pharaoh and Chris? An identity crisis with some rhythm. Our courageous musical warriors united in June 2010 and immediately started battling for turf on the streets, corners, and alleys of San Francisco in a DIY-styled effort to spread, what a wino in North Beach would shortly dub, MAD NOISE.

Out of amazement for their sheer audacity, the East Bay Express's Rachel Swan was the first to recognize the group's tenacity. After a year of a grueling campaign on the streets, crashing food festivals and farmer's market, MAD NOISE has been recognized throughout the Bay Area press as "Best Live Act" (Daily Cal), "Best Hyperliterate Busking Outfit" (SF Weekly), and now been "Best Local Band" through SF Bay Guardian's readers poll. So, at this point, you have to start wondering exactly how is it that three college students led by one gonzo graduate student have finagled their way into every possible type of music venue in the area while winning the admiration and loyalty of fans young and old? All in the space of about a year of street performing? There-in lies the magic of MAD NOISE!
