The Creators Project: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 14 2012

On a weekend when the insiders of the music industry are converging upon a certain city in Texas, San Francisco is getting its own mini music, tech, and art confab. The Creators Project, a collaboration of Vice media and computer chip giant Intel, will mark its first West Coast appearance by bringing a fat roster of indie-minded musicians to Fort Mason, including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Squarepusher, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy (performing a DJ set), The Antlers, Zola Jesus, Shabazz Palaces, and more. With a selection of artists representing genres like indie rock, frenetic electronica, avant-garde hip-hop, and dance music, Saturday's performances should be plenty engrossing. But if they're not enough, the Creators Project also offers visual art installations, film screenings, and discussion panels. And somehow, attendance is free.

  • 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.'"
