Jonathan Toubin: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 5 2012

Jonathan Toubin might be the crown prince of American soul-funk DJs. Obsessed with obscure 45s from the '50s and '60s, the New York icon aims to produce the energy and pacing of a modern club night, but with gritty, raw tunes that almost no one except a few crazed collectors and spinners have heard before. Toubin fell out of commission after a nearly fatal freak accident in Portland last year, but now he's back, bringing his legendary DJ night and dance contest to West Coast audiences once again. Expect the usual parade of unknown floor-fillers from Toubin's vaults, plus sets from top-shelf local garage-rockers Mikal Cronin and Shannon and the Clams. Anticipate a sweaty good time.

  • 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.'"
