The Punk Rock Swap is set to go live this weekend at Speakeasy Ales and Lagers in the Bayview. What's the Punk Rock Swap? Assistant brewer and helpful organizer Joe Smith says, "You can expect people selling records, clothing, tapes, mix CDs, and other random crafts they've created."

Highlights include a cassette tape mix swap, where you can re-home your old Bad Brains vs. The Bangles mix and walk away with an entire album of Link 80 covers. Right on. There are $3 beers on tap, food from Eagle Dog (with veg/vegan options, natch), and DJ's Kirka Sherpa, Güera, JoNeric, and 1 TBA.

What makes the event so punk? Smith says, "All who have been involved are not concerned with making a ton of money or adding to some ego. This is a attempt to create a event where we can all come together, have a pint, enjoy some food and contribute to the scene we love so much."

If you're interested in setting up and selling, email the organizers. UP THE PUNKS!

The fine print: Saturday, Dec. 17, 1-6 p.m., Speakeasy Ales and Lagers, 1195 Evans. Attendance is free.

  • 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.'"
