The community support for the friends and family of BART shooting victim Oscar Grant has spread to the music community. First Too $hort spoke at an Oakland protest on Jan. 14, and now representatives from the indie and metal world are getting involved. Sacramento hardcore faves Trash Talk will take the Gilman stage on a bill with local folksters Two Gallants on Sunday, Feb. 8. The show is a benefit, and proceeds from the $12 door fee will go to Grant's family. Show starts a 3:30 p.m. sharp and "special guests" are waiting in the wings for their announcement to the bill. (Perhaps another Too $hort cameo?).

  • 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.'"
