James Taylor at Sleep Train Pavilion 

James Taylor wowed the crowd at the Sleep Train Pavilion Tuesday night in Concord. James pulled select material from a vast repertoire of songs spanning an almost 50 year career. Tracks with lyrics even Bob Dylan would have envied in his prime like “Fire and Rain”, “Carolina in My Mind”, and “Sweet Baby James” were performed with a stellar band. Before performing his song “Something in the Way She Moves” he told the story of how Paul McCartney helped him get his big break and recalled how he performed the song in front of George Harrison and Paul before being signed to Apple Records. Special guests included Livingston Taylor, James’s brother. Photography by Jamie Soja.

  • 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.'"
