Most successful people — the ones you're jealous of — have one thing in common: They work really, really hard. Helmed by choreographer and dancer Sean Dorsey, the transgender and queer performance series known as the Fresh Meat Festival features a lineup so wide-ranging it might leave you wondering what the theme is, if you didn't know about the hard work bit. A Pacific Islander choir, a glamorous singer-songwriter, Dorsey's own release-technique modern dance company, and gay Appalachian cloggers, for example. Then there's Allan Frias Productions, a big, fun hip-hop dance company set to perform new choreography described as a "vogue/runway" piece. Frias, who has appeared on So You Think You Can Dance, teaches high-energy weekly classes, and runs Mind Over Matter dance group, exemplifies the thing that ties all these acts together: He works really, really hard. And the results are really, really good.

    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.'"
