ASD saw the Hard Sell at the Treasure Island Festival and nobody wanted to buy that shit. Here's hoping they got all the technical difficulties out of their system by Feb. 13, when they bring the two-man show back to SF at the Regency Center's swanky Grand Ballroom. And if they still suck, at least you'll have a swell opener in Kid Koala to fall back on. Get your tickets here. Click more for a press release. -- ASD Staff Report

  • 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.'"
