What To Do? Tuesday's Pick: The Drunken Monkey Lounge

The Drunken Monkey Lounge @ Paradise Lounge

The Drunken Monkey Lounge isn't so much a place as it is a state of mind. In fact, it's not even a place at all: D.M.L. was a weekly happening at Annie's Social Club before that venue's recent demise -- and it occupied every Tuesday at the Cat Club before that -- so its 2010 move to the Paradise Lounge is just a continuation of what's essentially a drinking session set to music. In other words, a hangout. D.M.L.'s guest DJs (or occasionally Hicksmokey's iPod when the decks are empty) play just about anything imaginable: industrial metal, outlaw country, smoky old-school soul, swirly goth, gangsta rap, you name it. Can you drink like a monkey? Then you're invited. Opposable thumbs and a love of musical variety are all that's required. Other than cash for cocktails, that is. (9 p.m., free)

  • 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.'"
