Daft Punk Funks Up Berkeley Tonight

Posted By on Fri, Jul 27, 2007 at 6:00 AM

Daft Punk, the French faux-bot duo that’s been tweaking knobs and lifting late-night spirits for more than a decade, has recently ventured into the world of film with Electroma. This meditative opus continues the group’s cyborg love affair: The pair plays sentient robots that travel the countryside to an Eno-esque score. Daft Punk’s live show is less Zen than frenetic, psychedelic deep-house action. Helped out by like-minded groups the Rapture, Sebastian, Kavinsky, the East Bay is in store for some fierce sound-wave oscillation when Daft Punk performs on Friday, July 27, at the Greek Theater in Berkeley at 8 p.m. Admission is sold out; visit for more info. -- Jonah Flicker

  • 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.'"
