  • Acoustic Yogi: Michael Franti

Nothing's more peaceful than yoga. And nothing's more powerful than music. If that sounds like an appealing combination to you, then you'll want to be at the appropriately-named Green Ballroom of the SF War Memorial & Performing Arts Center on June 6 for a full day of - you guessed it - yoga and music, with proceeds benefiting the free Power to the Peaceful concert in Golden Gate Park.

The day begins with a morning yoga session (bring your own mat), led by Sianna Sherman and Diana Vitantonio, accompanied by live acoustic music by Michael Franti. After a short break, Franti returns for another set, with special guests TBA, DJs, a silent auction and "yummy finger foods." Suggested donation: $40 for yoga, $50 and up for afternoon gala. More info is here and here.  Oh, and save this date: Sept 12 -- when PttP returns for its 11th edition.

  • 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.'"
