Bay Area rock dudes from Xiu Xiu, Deerhoof and Why? are throwing an ultra mega dance party tomorrow night to raise money for the Nyumbani AIDS orphanage in Kenya. Get your freak on to some Moz, Robert Smith, and Ian Curtis while thinking of the children. Here's what arch-nemesis Guardian had to say:

Like gloom with your get-down? Stewart will satisfy: he told me he plans to play only Joy Division, Smiths, and Cure songs during his 40-minute set. "People are either going to love this or hate this!" he says gleefully. "It's my idea of heaven on earth. Hopefully, it will be other people's as well."

  • 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.'"
