  • More Surreal than Neil: Lightning & Thunder

The 11th Annual San Francisco Independent Film Festival kicks off this week with an opening night party tonight at Cellspace featuring the Extra Action Marching Band, Live Evil, and our favorite Croatian wino, DJ Toph One! Admission is $7 (free with ticket stub). Other Sf Indie music-related events include Roller Disco night Feb. 13 and a "Rydell High Sock Hop" (for all you beauty school drop outs and T-Birds) Feb. 20.

We're fairly excited about the music-themed flicks screening this year: This Friday, the fest features "Ex-Drummer," a Belgian film about a celebrity author who joins a "quasi-disabled punk band"; On Saturday, Neil Diamond fans won't want to miss "Song Sung Blue," a true story about Lightning & Thunder, a husband-and-wife Diamond tribute band; Next Friday (the 13th), you can catch "Let Them Know," a USA-made doc about the LA punk scene in the early '80s. Venues include the Victoria Theatre, the Roxie, and Shattuck Cinema; ticket info is here

  • 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.'"
