How does an "over-educated 32-year old" decide between so many "cute indie girls with ugly indie guys" bands and hyped festivals? According to the smart-asses at Cracked.com, being able to say you've seen a certain hipster act live "feels like 100 orgasms covered in chocolate set to a Radiohead soundtrack." Make your way towards those oceans of cocoa and sonic rainbows by checking out the all-important Indie Music charticle. There's a local hook here too: John Vanderslice and what looks like Treasure Island Music Fest made the cut.

(Thanks to clubs editor John Graham for the tip.)

  • 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.'"
