In case you've yet to pick up this week's issue of SF Weekly, a couple music highlights for you here:

Emily Savage looks at what makes Noise Pop different from every other local music fest/good week in venue booking. The secret, it seems, is in limited-edition events, whether it's combining indie acts with orchestras, dragging Yoko Ono across the country with her son, or screening movies before anyone else gets to see them.

Oakland rapper D-Lo took a simple single, recorded at his mom's place in Modesto, and turned it into something Snoop Doog wanted to remix. Phillip Mlynar gives us the rundown on the long life of "No Hoe."

And Tony Ware gives us the scoop on the "fuzz-driven paranoia and psychedelic euphoria" in Vitalic's sophomore full-length, Flashmob.

  • 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.'"
