Daft Punk + movie about robots + live laser show = your Friday night highlight

(Electroma trailer)

This year, Daft Punk debuted its version of Two Lane Blacktop-ennui with Electroma, an arty flick about two robots who trapse around a quiet town, experience a literal face melting, and take a spin through the desert. The film has little to do with the French duo’s music and everything to do with their insistence on hiding behind elaborate costumes – the same get-ups outfit the stars of this dialog-free, minimally-plotted film. It’s smart that the Clay is showing Electroma at midnight (on Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1), as I’d recommend entering the theater with your brain baking in substances of your choosing.

To further enhance the psychedelic experience, the Clay is enlisting the skills of the costumed DJ Dupuy and a “bright green aerial light show” courtesy of the lighttech. Sounds so much cool than another round of Laser Zep at the planetarium. For more info, check out – Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
