Attention Deadheads: the show will go on. After a five-year hiatus, the remaining members of the Grateful Dead (Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart) will hit the road with keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Allman Brothers Band/Gov't Mule guitarist Warren Haynes this spring. The band, calling itself just the Dead these days, was inspired to dust off more oldies after Hart, Lesh and Weir played an Obama rally at the Warfield last Feb. The Dead will take its trip around the country starting in April but will host its finale on home turf -- at the Shoreline -- on May 10. -- 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.'"
