What Is This, Paris? 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2008
A crowd spills onto the sidewalk. People sway, drink, and close their eyes in rapt appreciation as young musicians work up a smirking sweat. It's a familiar enough scene, but at Classical Revolution, the music is three hundred years old. The impossible (free, stylish classical music) happens here, as Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, and their classical compatriots sit on the music stands in a bizarre combination of vital live music event and total dorkout.

  • 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.'"
