We just found out about a live-music Tribute to Morrissey's Birthday at the Knockout, over where Mission and Valencia bash into each other. We figure it'll be good since Morrissey aficionados generally take themselves very seriously and would shrink from performing crap. More importantly, anyone who's ever seen or heard the Music Lovers has had guilty desires to hear Ted the lead singer cover Morrissey, and he's one of the performers.

The Music Lovers' own original songs are focking gorgeous and all (new record out in August, after they tour Europe), but Ted's voice is just dreamy and almost-sarcastic enough that you can't help picturing him in a compromising position with "Shakespeare's Sister." So we were filled with joy to hear he'll be there. Sedate, sorrowful, desolately sumptuous joy, of course. Also performing are Keven of Veil Veil Vanish, Charles Gonzalez, Alex of the Reverse, and someone performing under the intriguing name of Orlando. --Hiya Swanhuyser

  • 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.'"
