Soon Pittsburgh's multi-headed Hydra will rear it's head from the depths of the three rivers and descend upon Downtown's Mexico City restaurant for the first time.
Pittsburgh is criticized by some for being too small and interconnected... yet often times these same qualities are what make it great. Hydra exists with the goal of bringing social/creative groups even closer together to show that cooperation, not competition, can yield the most rewarding results. To do this, a selection of the city's dance/electronic music promoters and multi-format artists have come together to put on one show of monstrous proportions. The Hydra artists and promoters have chosen acts and exhibits to best represent their tastes and interests in a wide variety of genres and formats on two floors of sound and art.
In addition, a buffet of Mexico City's Mexican food will be provided for guests starting at 8 promptly, so get there early!
DJs and Musicians for the Night Include:
Chico, Clevr, Cucitroa, Cutups, Depth One, Dizcrepnnc, DJ Thermos, DJ Skooze, Expensive Shit,
Keeb$, Newtronn, Nikkels, Hunted Creatures, James Gyre, JTS and Paul Fleetwood
Projected Visuals, 3D art, Sculptures and more from:
Brian Bullets, Casey Hallas, Kemical Phuture, Matt Gondek, and Stephanie Armbruster
Hydra has decided to feature a great local cause for this event which helps young kids around the city learn how to play, perform and write music called Arts Greenhouse. DJ Thermos is extremely instrumental in this organization and will be there to discuss AG with guests. In addition there will be silent auctions and more to benefit the cause financially.

The kids involved with this project made a compilation mixtape - check it out here:
