Top Local DJs Throwing Giant Haiti Benefit

At a time when Haiti is suffering from both looting and aftershocks, San Franciscans are coming together for a second week of fundraising benefits. These special shows are two-fold: chances to donate money to a country that will need aid for years to come, and opportunities to experience a night out with performers and DJs who haven't shared a stage together for years, if ever.

On January 30, Mezzanine is hosting a huge benefit stocked with the city's top pop/electro DJ talent coming from the top local promoter pools (what one of my coworkers here has tagged half-jokingly "Hipsters for Haiti"). On deck that night: Bad Neighbors, Eric Sharp, Disco Shawn, Jeffrey Paradise, Nisus, Omar, Richie Panic, Shane King, Sleazemore, Sticky K, Tenderlions (DJ set), and White Girl Lust. The party will be hosted by Trackademiks, and 100% of the $10-$15 entrance fee will go to the Red Cross.

  • 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.'"
