"Piano Heights" Brings Beautiful Music to Bernal Hill

Remember when a piano mysteriously appeared on Bernal Hill back in June?

Anyone could have a seat and plunk out a few notes (we're sure there was a lot of "Heart and Soul" and "Chopsticks" going on), but filmmaker Darryl Kirchner caught a more refined sound on camera -- a piano concert atop the hill. Men in white suit jackets and bow ties pushed a new piano atop the hill (as the city had claimed the original) and various pianists played tunes while the crowd took in the sounds against the beautiful backdrop of San Francisco. Check out the Piano Heights concert here:

  • 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.'"
