After the reunited '80s Butthole Surfers lineup (Gibby Haynes, Paul Leary, Jeff Pinkus, King Coffey and Teresa Taylor) played Austin back in September, the group is now targeting San Francisco for two nights of Texas-tweaked psychedelic punk. That same linup will ring out the end of 2008 with a two-night stand at the Fillmore (Dec. 30 and 31st), the first time the group has played the West Coast in seven years. -- 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.'"
