Mt. Tam Jam: Show Preview 

Friday, Jun 21 2013

The Mt. Tam Jam brings live music to Mt. Tamalpais's century-old amphitheater for the first time since the Summer of Love. Back then, it was a hippie-art freakout with the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, and Captain Beefheart. Now, it's gonna be an epic groove party featuring New Orleans funk machine Galactic, attitudinal hipsters Cake (still laying down "I Will Survive" after all these years), chameleonic bluesman Taj Mahal, marrow-deep white-boy soul singer Mike Farris (with his blazing big band the Roseland Rhythm Revue), and ballsy blues rockers Danny Click & the Hell Yeahs. The concert is a benefit to help keep the park alive and well at a time when the government seems only interested in funding the police state. The producers at Tamalpais Conservation Club hope this Saturday's event will be the beginning of an "annual, sustainable revenue source." Doing your part should sound great — and the view from up there won't be bad, either.

  • 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.'"
