Kid Cudi: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 15 2011

Anyone looking for hip-hop that's free of pretension and strong on honest-to-goodness emotions would be well advised to catch Kid Cudi on his latest tour. This low-key Ohio boy, friend of Kanye West, Grammy nominee, and hipster-rock crossover star has a unique voice, as evidenced on 2009's Man on the Moon: The End of Day and 2010's even more eclectic Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. He's raw, honest, and supremely talented, so you'd be well advised not to miss him when he performs with Chip Tha Ripper.

    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.'"
