For the first time, the world's largest and most notorious porn conference is going virtual. AVN Media Network has announced that its 2012 Adult Entertainment Expo, which takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Jan. 20-21, will be open to online registrants for the first time.

A $19 pass scores all the behind the scenes action one could desire -- well, not really, but it will get you a peek at the exhibitors' booths, the 29th annual awards show, and the decadent afterparties as they unfold. There'll also be interactive podcasting and the titillating promise of "downloadable material."

Organizers expect around 30,000 to attend in the flesh, but they haven't released expectations for virtual numbers this year, though we wouldn't be surprised if the numbers can be matched up. Hard Rock Hotel will host all of the events within its complex, another first for the conference.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
