Local jazz just got a big boost. SFJazz has announced "Hotplate," described in their PR as"a new concept from SFJAZZ that features a different Bay Area artist each month, interpreting the music of their favorite jazz legend. Generously supported by The Wallace Foundation, the Hotplate program provides new performance opportunities for local jazz talent and is set to run continuously through 2011."

The monthly series will be held at Amnesia, with an opening set by DJ Vinnie Esparza, and kicks off September 10 with Terrence Brewer playing the music of Wes Montgomery. Future Hotplates include Wil Blades playing Jimmy Smith, Joe Bagale playing Ray Charles, and Spaceheater playing Rahsaan Roland Kirk. For more info, click 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.'"
