The superstition is that deaths come in threes, and one day after Jay Reatard, two more musicians made the news this morning, one of them in the Bay Area. Philly soulman Teddy Pendergrass died at age 59 last night of complications related to colon cancer. And reports that 24-year old Dewey Tucker, was shot and killed Tuesday night on I-80 near Crockett as he drove to band rehearsal in Oakland. Tucker was a respected bassist who played with Lauryn Hill, Kev Choice Ensemble, and the Coup. Very sad news.

  • 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.'"
