Hey music geeks -- get your stereos prepped. Local public radio station KALW (91.7) will start airing Sound Options, a music talk show with critic debates and artist interviews, every Sunday at 2 p.m. starting this week. Unfortunately the program isn't locally based, and doesn't center on Bay Area acts and issues. But its two hosts -- Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times and Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune -- are nonetheless well respected in the music crit field. This Sunday, Jan. 4, they gather round the radio mic to discuss the year in mixtapes. -- 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.'"
