Wonder-Full club night: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 8 2010

Jay-Z claims to be the eighth wonder of the world, but we all know which musician truly deserves that title. It's Stevie Wonder, for his nearly ubiquitous catalog: You'll hear "Sir Duke" at weddings, "Ribbon in the Sky" in a cab playing soft-rock radio, or "All I Do" at a hip sushi restaurant. While receiving international acclaim, Wonder's output has been also covered, interpreted, and remixed practically since his 1963 Motown debut. So whether through Ramsey Lewis' 1967 funky instrumental version of "I Was Made to Love Her," or Sergio Mendes covering "Don't You Worry About a Thing," few events capture Stevie's magic like the Wonder-Full club night series featuring Brooklyn's DJ Spinna and guests. Started in 1999 and now a world-touring franchise, Spinna plays Wonder rarities, covers, and remixes from his massive vinyl vault.

  • 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.'"
