The de Young Museum continues its streak of featuring big names in pop culture with an extensive sounding Warhol show that opens on Valentine's Day next year. The exciting part is that the focus of the exhibit, called "Warhol Live" will be his well-documented connection to the music scene, with displays of his "silkscreen paintings, films and sound recordings, album covers, illustrations, and photographs inspired by music and the performing art." Plus the museum will host a recreation of Warhol's famous Silver Factory, as well as live performance pieces related to Warhol's world. -- 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.'"
