OK Go to Play Maker Faire This Weekend

Posted By on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 1:20 PM

OK Go employs some crafty musicians. Not only can they perform choreographed dance moves on treadmills, but their latest viral smash, "This Too Shall Pass," involved a Rube Goldberg like machine with paint, marbles, a teddy bear, musical spoons, sports equipment, and more. The band has been so visually creative, in fact, that OK GO has been invited to perform at Maker Faire this weekend at the San Mateo County Event Center. As a teaser to its headlining show at the Fillmore on Wednesday, May 26, the boys will be performing around 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 23 at the Faire. There is sure to be some sort of artsy shenanigans going down at an event that's all about promoting artsy everything.

  • 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.'"
