The Senator Has the Floor at Black Gold 

Wednesday, Aug 20 2008

You may want your retro-soul weekend parties to be packed, sweaty blasts full of vintage grinders. But on Monday nights, the smooth, sugar-melting tones of '60s soul music work as relaxing tonics to calm party-frazzled nerves — and that's where Black Gold comes in. Hosted by Senator Soul of the Knockout's monthly 45 Club, Black Gold oozes with slow Motown melodies and humid Stax finger-snappers. This is a fine way to warm up to the work week, sipping a strong cocktail in the dark while classic R&B singers seduce you with vocals sweeter than molasses pancakes. So ditch the oil cartels and invest in Black Gold instead. It's mellow, it's friendly, and — best of all — it's free on Monday, Aug. 25, and every Monday at 10 p.m. at KoKo Cocktails.

  • 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.'"
