The festival opens with a masquerade gala at Aquarium of the Bay tonight. The gala includes a silent auction, wine, sustainable seafood, a silent auction and film screenings. It will also feature a talk by Captain Don Walsh, who is one of three people to have ever gone to the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest part of the ocean in the world.

  • 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.'"
