Air Guitar is such a popular pastime in San Francisco that the national qualifying event at the Independent on June 25 is way sold out. But for those who want to see the local contestants work a little magic, clubs editor John Graham passed along that there's an Air Guitar pre-funk at Marina watering hole Bar None on Tuesday, June 24. The national finals, the contest deciding who gets to play an invisible instrument all the way to the world championships in Finland, is at the Grand Ballroom in S.F. August 9. -- 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.'"
