Geeks should be happy to know that Jonathan Lethem, author of the best-selling superhero novel Fortress of Solitude, has wrapped up a miniseries for Marvel Comics. Instead of injecting his take on major fixtures like Spidey or the X-Men, Lethem resurrects Omega the Unknown, an obscure 70s character that Lethem affectionately references in Solitude. Listen to Lethem discuss his jump to the comics medium at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco Sept. 23. Get your tickets here. --Oscar Pascual

  • 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.'"
