Hip hop ya don't stop 

Wednesday, Jun 26 2013

Les Twins manage a feat that is rare in hip-hop dance: they keep it real and pay the bills. Known for their intensity and unique ability to finish each other's moves on the spot, Les Twins have performed on the Billboard Music Awards, the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Dancing With the Stars, but still find time to hit the clubs and enter competitions. In 2011 they won the New Style Hip-Hop division at the prestigious street-dance contest Juste Debout. This twin approach to hip-hop stardom will be on display tonight, when Les Twins take a break from dancing with Beyonce on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, for their first hour-length theatrical production. Les Twins will perform their solo show first, and then put their name, fame and a cash prize on the line, in a head-to-head dance battle against some of California's finest street-dancers. Their solo show will feature a guest appearance from the San Francisco Ballet, and invited competitors for the battle include Mighty Zulu Kings member Boogie Frantick, The Art of Teknique, and Soul Sector's Boy Wonder.

  • 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.'"
