After an accidental fire got them booted from their former warehouse, the NIMBY East Bay artist workshop/collective was forced to relocate. Several months (not to mention many thousands of dollars) later, the crew has finally set up shop in their new location at 8410 Amelia Street in East Oakland. That means it's time for a party. Among the live performers at this Saturday's shindig are Sesame Street metalheads Cookie Mongoloid, post-punk howlers Turks, the Cyclecide house band Los Banos, all-female metallistas Binky, industrial DJ Caine, bike dancers the Dérailleurs, and more. (Disregard the multiple misspellings on the flyer. --->) The event starts "at dark," with an official sunset time just shy of 6 p.m., and the entry charge is a
minimum $10 donation. It should be a good old-fashioned Bay Area freakshow in a new-fangled location, so pile into the Family Truckster and head on over.

  • 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.'"
