Main Attrakionz: Show Preview

The sky clearly isn't the limit for Oakland hip-hop duo Main Attrakionz, that seems to thrive in its current residence of outer space. Bursting from the nascent "cloud rap" scene of five years ago — think lo-fi SoundCloud mixtapes and internet-only debuts — the combo of Mondre M.A.N. and Squadda B has since headlined a museum show in New York City, appeared on a track with A$AP Rocky, and released an album on the experimental noise label Type Records. Fueled by limitless creativity as much as weed, vodka, and cough syrup, Main Attrakionz could still be seen as a curious oddity were it not for the recent fire behind their live shows. Where the two once lazily loped their way through razor-thin productions on stage, there's a fresh determination that's crept into the group's delivery, bursting the cloud and rocking the crowd. In the close confines of the Milk Bar, and for the dirt-cheap cover price of five bucks, your Thursday night couldn't get much better.

  • 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.'"
