Actress: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 3 2010

San Francisco's Big Up magazine has been covering the world of underground, beat-driven culture for two years now, and on Friday it celebrates with a massive dance party at the freshly launched Public Works club. The local rag will bring in South London's leftfield beat-techno-electro-bass producer Actress to headline its second birthday party, a set that also marks his first-ever performance in our fine city. Born Darren Cunningham, Actress also runs the excellent Werk Discs label, which is home to electronic luminaries Zomby and Lone, among others. He'll be joined at Big Up's birthday jump-off by a few like-minded DJs and producers, including Low Limit (one half of Lazer Sword), up-and-comer Jus Wan, and beat-scene wunderkind Shlohmo.

  • 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.'"
