(((folkYEAH!))) promotes the most interesting music events in Northern California, hosting numerous shows in Big Sur and the Santa Cruz Mountains. Next week, honcho Britt Govea has two big performances: Animal Collective on Wednesday, May 27, and an extra special all night gathering dedicated to ambient music on Thursday, May 28 called Tonalism.

Tonalism goes from 4:20 p.m. to 5 a.m. at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur and offers two stages of electronic and acoustic music: Windy & Carl, White Rainbow, Nudge, Mia Doi Todd; side projects by members of Dungen and Animal Collective; DJ sets by Andy Cabic of Vetiver, Jimmy Tamborello, and members of  co-presenters dublab; and lots more. There are over two dozen artists and DJs planned for the event, which includes a visual element as well.

The promoters hope folks will bring pillows and dress all cozy, as attendees are allowed to doze a little as the evening turns into morning. Only 300 tickets (and free cups of tea) are available for the special show.

Bonus: We have a free pair of tickets available for the first commenter to describe their favorite pillow below.

  • 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.'"
