There's been some talk around town that Oakland's Fox Theater--which rolled out its snazzy, remodeled digs in February--was being underutilized, especially with promoters Another Planet Entertainment, involved in the massive Outside Lands festival and also booking shows at the Greek Theater and the Independent.

Talk, as they say, is cheap, however. Tonight the Fox hosts the first of eight shows in ten days, with NYC's post-punk trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs , featuring fabulous frontwoman Karen O, headlining tonight and tomorrow. Ms. O. may be the most interesting female vocalist to hit the rock scene since Chrissie Hynde, and she shows little signs of slowing down or becoming any less edgy, despite the band's success and fame over the past nine years. See what all the fuss is about tonight by clicking here for ticket info ; warm-up for the show by watching a video of "Zero" (co-starring SF's own Warfield auditorium).

  • 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.'"
