Apparently a lot of people have never gotten over R. Kelly's musical...opera, spectacle, odyssey, epic...whatever you want to call it. I call "Trapped in the Closet" pretty prog rock, what with all the characters, themes, emotions and storyline involved. It's kinda almost like King Crimson did R&B, but not really. There's no doubting R. Kelly's "masterpiece" is grandiose as fuck, and you can be part of it at the Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along taking place at the Mezzanine this weekend. Here's your chance to belt out, "Oh my God, a rubber, rubber, rubber!" in public without humiliating yourself. And here's to the first official R. Kelly post without a piss joke! Hurray! -- 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.'"
