WiLD 94.9 the Bomb

This year's WiLD 94.9 the Bomb event has something for everybody. Those seeking bombastic summertime fun should check out rotund Miami MC Rick Ross, his associate Gorilla Zoe from Atlanta, and old-school crowd-pleaser Ice Cube. Houston spitter Baby Bash and much-heralded Miami MC Pitbull bring a Latin edge to mainstream rap sounds, as does Sean Paul by way of his chart-topping dancehall anthems. Surprisingly, the hottest performer on the bill is former dance-craze purveyor Soulja Boy, who struck earworm gold once again on his latest album, iSouljaBoyTellem. If all else fails, give yourself a neck massage in advance and then go headbang to the crunk-punk-electro sounds of Hollywood producers LMFAO.

  • 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.'"
