Hardly Strictly Bluegrass '09: Steve Martin, Neko Case, and more

Posted By on Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 3:58 PM

Steve Martin is a wild and crazy guy...who happens to dig bluegrass. The above video is from a performance he had last September with The Steep Canyon Rangers in that band's home state of North Carolina, with the white-haired comedian plucking away on the banjo. Martin will bring these boys and their banjos to Golden Gate Park the weekend of Oct. 2-4 when the group headlines this year's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass fest. Also on deck to perform: Neko Case, Doc Watson, Okkervil River, Earl Scruggs, Gillian Welch, John Prine, Old 97s, Marianne Faithful, Mavis Staples, Aimee Man, Billy Bragg, and lots more

  • 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.'"
