Neil Young's new concert film, CSNY Deja Vu, sounds like more than just a collection of tour performances. In 2006, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young hit the road for a series of "Freedom of Speech" shows, where they spoke out against the Iraq war. Young brought along a camera crew, as well as ABC Nightline correspondent Mike Cerre, who helped weave a documentary narrative of the public's reaction to both the war and the musicians' protests into the film. Included in CSNY Deja Vu are interviews with soldiers and their families, politicians, music fans, and of course, the group itself. Young will host a special screening for the movie on Thursday, July 17, at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas. More info at the San Francisco Film Society's Web site. --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.'"
