Happy trails, HD DVD. Toshiba Corp. will likely abandon HD DVD this week and officially lose the format war to Blu-ray, according to reports. This comes in the wake of Wal-Mart, Netflix and many other retailers announcing their discontinuation of HD DVD sales and rentals. In other news, HD DVD players make for excellent paper weights or drink coasters. -- 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.'"
