This weekend is kind of a slow one for music in the Bay Area--next week promises to be better, with many artists hitting town before or after the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival--but if you're looking for something to do Saturday night, how about "Golden Era: East Meets West Edition."

Somewhat of a bicoastal soundclash, the event, held at 111 Minna, matches DJs Jah Yzer and Daze (spinning classic East coast hip-hop) with Mr. E  , Franky Fresh, and Vickity Slick (spinning West Coast favorites). The music selection promises to hark back to an earlier, simpler time in hip-hop, before the genre went corporate. Tickets are $5 before 11 pm and $10 thereafter. More 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.'"
