The Heavenly States to open for Spoon at the Fillmore

Oakland indie pop band The Heavenly States just announced some good news: they'll be opening for Spoon on the Austin band's three-night run at the Fillmore September 22, 23 and 24th. Good news for the States, the band previously most famous for being the first rock act to play Libya after that country lifted a 30-year ban on the Devil's music. The Fillmore crowd won't be the same thing as playing that British consulate's basement in Libya, but since these shows are guaranteed to sell out, it should help the four-piece beyond the fervent ex-pat community overseas. Not that America has ignored them -- Rolling Stone recently gave their latest record, Delayer, high praise. -- 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.'"
