Local Video: League510, They Come In Peace To The Beat

Posted By on Fri, Apr 30, 2010 at 12:46 PM

Moving to a new place can feel like coming to a new planet, at least that's what it's been like for League510, who says they're from... outerspace. Producing a sound they've coined as "Town Techno" and ditching their "spaceship" in the Oakland Hills, they've released the video for the first single off From the Beat. The video shows the band in bold, neon video game colors as they take over S.F. and Oakland Godzilla-style but with laser guns and nunchucks... BART nunchucks. At the 3:00 minute mark, watch grimy BART get tossed around.

  • 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.'"
