In honor of actor Patrick Swayze, who died of cancer yesterday at age 57, our track highlights today will take on a special Swayze theme:

Austin, Texas' Dirty Dancing: gutbucket blooze with a psych rock chaser.

Nashville, Tennesee's Point Break: bizarre spoken word bit about ghosts.

Portland, Oregon's Bodhi (Swayze's name in Point Break): weird synth pop.

And last, but not least, Kanye interrupts Patrick Swayze's funeral to set the record straight.

  • 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.'"
